So in reality even by having the same salary, you will be actually taking a massive pay cut.

Better think long and hard about this before you make the move.

Will your new job decrease the massive amounts of time you are on this website?

Actually just ran some numbers and I'd be making about $5k per year with the small business.

I also have a hell of a commute and spend about $3k in fuel every year + wear and tear on a car so I guess it'd be about $10k more per year, give or take.

Have you looked up how much health insurance would be for your family? Because it’s ridiculous

I would expect so.

Aggies definitely want me to take it, I'm sure.

No benefits and no bump in pay? I'd have to stay put.

What is your outlook in the industry you work in (or would work in) if the country goes into recession?

I think the choice is obvious but what is your gut feel

Honestly not sure as far as a generic recession goes.

Both my current employer and the small business grew pre Covid shutdowns till now though.

Sure, if you consider letting Jody PIIHB to be nothing.

OP, sales is typically quite transferable. The lack of benefits at the new place sucks, but if you get 1-2 years of managerial experience out of it coupled with your sales background, you could be in sales leadership at a stable company by the time you’re 32-33.

re: Tough career decision
Good salespeople make TERRIBLE operations people.

I was Fortune 500 sales- and badass at it. So much so I worked for the brand President before I left to go out on my own.

Operations is my weak point- and everyone on my management team now tells me “We gotta get the salesman out of you somehow”

Only you know if you can make this jump. But it’s TOTALLY opposite of what you’re doing now.
