Yea, I think that's where I need to learn more about the businesses, pay or dividend myself enough to live off and keep everything else in the business.

Also, health insurance through the business seems advantageous.

I was hoping someone on the site is doing something somewhat similar.

I have thought about it, but mostly to get earned income and be able to fund a IRA or Roth IRA while retired. Perhaps also get the 50% match for people with low income (assuming the trading did not generate significant income above that level). 50% match to your Roth means you start out very ahead of the game.

I assume if you are a trader it is earned income?

AFAIK, if it's earned income there's no way to avoid paying Social Security tax.
