Sandi Martin: The choice I made: To leave a secure job with lots of room for advancement -- but only marginal room for fulfillment -- and build a business around the small part of the job that I love and am really, really good at.

Kudos to you, Sandi, for aligning your pursuits with your priorities. Might I suggest that a Canadian attorney might yield a higher ROI than Google AdWords in that, perhaps, you could navigate around your employment restrictions and continue to serve their needs without interruption. All the best in your new endeavor!
