well, my ebay income would need to go up 13X for me to break even, so for now, its a hobby. I also like what I do for a living so I'll retire when I no longer enjoy it, or get a boss I hate, or have to go back to traveling 100K miles per year. Its a drag (as a married guy who likes his wife) when in a given month, you're in your own bed 3-4 nights a month. I thought about retiring 15 years ago, but didn't have anything I wanted to do more than what I was already being paid to do. I don't do well with downtime. Hobbies expand to consume any available time.
As to Wes' retirement goal......My guess is that he will be 90 and still working something. He's making the full move to self employment and my bet is opportunities will come up over the next 2 years that will be even more lucrative than the vintage clothing business and he will find himself still sleeping only 4 hours a night.
