I hope this is the right place to post this.
I have an incredible job opportunity that I can't pass up. I have an interview to get my old job back as a medical transcriptionist that I had before I got sick. I'm so excited!
I need to put all of my energy and focus into this job and so I must sell Suncatcher Eyes (the business). I don't want to just have it come to an end. That would be such a shame as that would be letting down a lot of customers, and it is a good revenue producer. It is equivalent to a part-time job with better than part-time pay. My sales have doubled over the past year, and I expect them to keep growing. All of my business was conducted through PayPal, so I can provide printouts/screenshots of sales for any months you'd like to see (for serious inquiries only please).
I would love to keep it, but I can't say no to a matching 401k, full medical and dental benefits, and life insurance. I've gone without insurance long enough, and it isn't fun at all. Did I mention I get to work at home in my jammies?
I am contemplating selling the business for one year's worth of income it produces. I know I should sell for more, but to be honest I want a clean start when I start my new job.
Has anyone else had experience selling an online business? It will include all of my supplies (about 2-3 months' worth), my wholesale contacts, packaging, shipping materials, paints, 2 websites, blog, Flickr group, all of my digital files and photographs of the product, and unlimited support to get whoever buys it up and running.
Oh, and that also means I may not be writing and sharing any more crochet patterns. I haven't decided what to do with the ones I have for sale. Give them all away for free perhaps? I don't know yet.
So when you don't see me online anymore, don't worry. I'll be happily typing away at home
Does anyone have any advice?
