I have a side business that, through some diligent effort and a lot of market analysis, is poised to explode over the next 18-24 months. Enough to ERE in full, if all goes well. I never, ever expected this. It is something I stumbled upon, frankly -- never part of long-range planning.
I am curious -- anyone here have this happen with a business, a product, or an unexpected windfall? A stock portfolio or a huge risk that took off? I am talking about the out-of-the-blue event, not a long-awaited windfall.
If so, would you share your story? Any warnings? We are not quitting day jobs until/unless the capital we need to retire is in the bank, so we aren't acting on assumptions.
