I am constantly in fear of loosing everything.
I run a good business that is growing, but cash it tight and too tight sometimes, just as I think I have a load of money bills flood in all at the same time. I never seem to get over the worry part of that, hate owing money to people. Then i fear what happens if I loose my business, we could not afford to live how we do (not luxurious but ‘normal’), my wife is a teacher but her money would not pay for everything. Looking into thing if it did happen I would get nothing in terms of benefits as we have equity in the house. No family or savings to fall back on and feel very exposed. I know people living in nice houses doing well, some of them working, some milking benefits, not worrying like I do. Ultimately I would live in a box but I dont want to let my children down. Nothing actually happening yet, but I never seem to get anywhere or really make much to have time to relax. Plus I work all hours so dont have fun realyl doing anything I enjoy. Not looking forward to getting old and having nothing to live on - rather depressing! I could pack it in and go and get a job elsewhere for more money but I employ people ad my business partner had put a lot of money in so feel obligated. Plus it may go well one day! 10 steps forward 9.9999999 steps back. My biggest fear is looking back at a life that I could have lived, instead of working and worrying like hell for little personal or financial reward. 35 now, bee doing this business thing now for 11 years, mid life crisis anyone?
