Everybody wants to be rich and have more money than they need. At least everybody I know. But not everyone wants to work the eight to five job. The eight to five job is basically the white collar job. You wake up really early in the morning, dress up, get ready and try not to get to work late. Problem is, not everybody likes it. Another problem is that the life of an entrepreneur is not made for everyone.
Some people love the eight to five job, don’t get me wrong. They love the security and the fact that they get to do what they love in a stable environment. They enjoy the fact that as long as they keep turning back good work, their place in the company is assured. They like the fact that after a certain amount of years, they can expect a promotion. That’s all well and good, and even if you don’t know or want to accept it, it might be the life for you.
Some other people like the thrill, the adventure that comes with entrepreneurship. They enjoy the stressful times, the times when they feel like all is gone and somehow miraculously come back from the edge, they enjoy all of that. They love risk taking. This is why some people prefer to be entrepreneurs. Others just find themselves in it. Some others just want to have time for other things like their family and maybe another job. This is all feasible but there’s one thing to note, entrepreneurship is not all fun and games.
There is also a third class of people. The freelancers, they are called. The ones who spend their time how they choose and only wait for clients to call upon them when they are needed. This sounds great to every sloth in the world but it’s not always the right decision. Building the right network as a freelancer is incredibly hard. You have to have good social skills as referrals are very important. So far, I haven’t met any freelancers.
Whichever options you choose to stick with, it is important to note that nothing good ever comes easy in life. Even bad things don’t come easy. You have to be ready to work, work like your life depends on it. Another thing to know is that while the work is important, rest is also more important. Set some days aside for rest and don’t let anything get in the way of that.
Happy Career Hunting!
