    John,
    Thanks, I have a small chocolate wholesale/retail business. I started 6 years ago and after growing from 3 part time employees and lots of self employment expenses, remakes etc. I have been just me myself and I. I work almost 24/7 and multi-tasking is the name of my game. Now, I am thinking of relocating out of state and downsizing because I love what I do, but to consult with my accounting person about planning for a closing of this business and starting the same business in a different state that I will eventually retire in. I feel I have learned what to do and what not to do, so I have about 1-2years to schedule the move.
    Thanks, always enjoy your posts..
