I don't mean why do you work or sah.

Basically for lack of something better to do and because it fits in with our family life. I fell into it by marrying dh. So, I basically run one small aspect of what we do, and he does all the rest pretty much.
I like being my own boss and having a great deal of flexibility. I like that what I do is useful to others, even if those others are small in number. I like that what I produce will remain after I am gone.
It is also interesting to have a window on dh's side of the business. I get to meet a lot of interesting people, and get to have insight into things that I would not otherwise get near.
I was raised in family business and always knew that is
i first read this OP as my kids were preparing for their day and DH was leaving for work this morning..i sometimes think of where we are as strokes of luck but the reality is it's far more than that.
Like emptynester, I kind of fell into my current job.
I started my sewing career because the fabric shop hired me before the local library did.
