Same for me, and if you're like me, it's the big paychecks, supermodels,
expensive cars, and sacks of fan mail that keep it alive and make it all
worth it. ;-) Seriously, I love it. My customers don't know internet
stuff, but they know their business, and my business gives me a unique
opportunity to participate in their business and help them run it, and I
learn something from them every day; hopefully I'm returning the favor.

Absolutely. For myself, I've also learned a lot about finance (by
necessity). I trust myself more to do financial analysis than I trust my
accountant to do a technical analysis. :-)
