That is a personal decision, but lest I be perceived as a hypocrite, I drive a 8 year old truck, have not received any income (except a pension from Canada) for 3 months, and put everything I have into my company and the rest I can scrape up I send to my children. I lose large sums in product development. Now that my teaching duties have re-commenced, by the end of the year I might have enough to purchase more tests - but by then my beautiful Korean - Canadian grandaughter will be born and we will be winging our way to Korea. Anyone who contemplates becoming a corporate executive needs to realize that for 3 years they are going to experience poverty they have not seen since their 20s - and very very little sleep. Just the way it is. Not one penny of anything that comes into EA goes into my pocket or that of my partner. We are working pro-bono / gratis. I look forward to the day that I can afford one of my own tests. Before I started the company I purchased 15 tests f!
Shetland Project since I desperately wanted those surnames. Those days are long gone. Fortunately I am the R1b guinea pig for product development and get freebies. I paid for my own uncle's R1a Subgroup test so the company would not have to bear the burden. From flying high in private practice to mulling over whether I can really afford that cup of coffee. But my frugality will pay off in the long run as EA is poised to withstand absolutely anything thrown at us in the way of competition and still keep coming up with new products - yes I know we promised a BGA test and I think I may have come up with a creative way to get rolling on this again.
... including DYS464X? :-)

There are those who, like myself, are going to want to be tested for every
R1b - related product to try to give some structure to our otherwise
amorphous Y chromosome.
