RE: I feel no reward from work
Spontaneity is definitely curtailed, without question. It's one of the joys of childhood and high school / college life: you're not really responsible to anyone, not even to yourself really, you can goof off a lot more.

I've been working in corporate jobs for 13 years, have since climbed up to management at a large international bank.

Four years ago I had enough of the repetitive work and being chained to my cube and asked to work remotely. If they were to say no, then I was going to quit and start up my own business, even though it was likely to fail.

My employer surprisingly said yes and I worked remotely for three years. My life improved substantially after that and gave me a fresh perspective on things.

I went back into the office full-time last year. While I can't stand the commute and regular hours, I was given a 30% wage increase, and my bonus jumped 50%. I'm being promoted now and am being more challenged at work.

Was it worth it? Ultimately I think so because I've meet a great girl, where we now can buy a nice house and start a family. Will I do it forever? No, I'll probably transition into real estate once my nestegg is big enough because I'm pretty familiar with it. But I can't walk away from it now, so my dreams of becoming an entrepreneur are, at this moment, dead.

If you're very dissatisfied with your job, don't make much, have a shit boss/employer, and don't have a serious girlfriend or dependents, then I would advise attempting to branch off on your own, as RioNomad succinctly described it. The downsides are small but the upsides are huge.

I got a lot of inspiration and know-how from Tim Ferriss's book Four-Hour Work Week. A lot of guys here don't like him, but this book inspired me and gave me ideas on to work remotely.

Another book to read is How to Get Rich . Felix will mince no words in describing what you're getting into if you branch out on your own and try to make some good money.

Good luck, and PM me if you want any advice.
