There is no obligation in doing anything extra or special. You can have a very basic life, and that’s fine. If you think about your „extra duties“ and other have-to-dos because of a project you’ve been running or a side-business you started, remember that you chose to start it. So, have fun in the process and stop when there’s no fun anymore.
Worried about money? If you are a caring person who „arouses enthusiasm among your people“ and develops the best that is in a person by appreciation and encouragement (cp. „How to Win Friends & Influence People“), you will always find a position in a company or a place as someone’s side-kick business partner.
