You have such a sense of humor!! There is work to do and it must be done, so I do it.
One of my clients knows I will bow out in two years even if a replacement hasn’t been found, but he is actively looking for someone. My largest client knows I want to be working half-time by the end of two years. Another one I will probably drop after this year. One other I hope to let go of within two years but haven’t had that conversation yet. And, two others I will continue with indefinitely — work is easier than anywhere else, no one to put up with but my clients.
Until then, I trudge along . . .
