As an entrepreneur and someone who has no boss, no job, no set hours, and no limits on income – I marvel at the anxiety that those with jobs go through to keep themselves relevant in the work place. I learned quite a while back the “life is not fair”….and consequently are we not sometimes picking fights where the best course of action might be simply to veer off the conflict and find greener pastures along the detour? The pension plan and golden hand shake appear to still operate vexingly in spite of sapping creativity and self-initiative from the inner purpose of an individual. What good is a pension if it comes at the price of sacrificing our most precious asset, “time”, for the good of a padded dividend to some high net worth benefactor alien to our existence? You can embark upon entrepreneurship while holding your job! Yes, you can! There is no law against moonlighting! If your company frowns upon it – how much does it really care about you and your financial autonomy? Where is the loyalty of an employer during the downturns and pink slips? Does your employer deserve to have it both ways? Are there interests at work that encourage you to believe that you cannot achieve?
