How have you rejected him the other times he asked you to work for him?  I think just a firm “I appreciate the offer, but I’m happy with the position I have right now and am not planning to leave.  Good luck in your search.” something like that should work.. and just keep repeating the same thing each time he calls.

It’s pretty simple.  Just tell him you are happy with your current job and don’t want to work that many hours.  If he won’t leave you alone then stop taking his calls.

You could say something like: I’m not interested in exploring other opportunities at this time.  I am happy in my current position.

Thank you so much for thinking of me for this position. I have thought about it, but I am happy with my current job and I am not looking for a change right now. Ill be sure to let you know in the future if I am looking for a new job

Thats it. Be nice, dont burn your bridges because you never know when you might need him.

I just want to add that I think youre making the right decision for your family.  I am currently a tax accountant working on my CPA certification and I am MISERABLE.  This will be my 7th busy season… and it sucks!  You spend so much time at the office.. chained to your chair and calculator!!!  Its good money, and it works as a career for a lot of people… but after nearly four years… it isnt working for me!!!

I think you need to tell him that you are extremely grateful for the part-time work he was willing to give to you when you were part-time at your current job and that you enjoyed working with him very much. However, because you are now working full-time at a job that you really love, you just are not in a position to consider making a move at this time. However, express to him that, if circumstances should change in the future, you would be honored to be considered at that time for any available openings he may have.
