PI takes bravery....to pull the trigger and borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars and trust others to look after it and pay you rent is scary....that's why most don't go there. So my next question may be an easy "yes" answer for most here...or is it? But what about your work? Who has contemplated changing a job they hate, but provides relative safety and reasonable financial reward?...many people contemplate it, but never pull the trigger unless forced to. But who here is brave enough to do it?...a completely different field, a different place/suburb even.
