Life Lessons in Self Employment...

All too often we run into this conundrum when owning (or seeking to own) an independent business. The money is tight, and our time seems short. All while ambition is left floating desperate in the wind. Many of you reading this article may still be working a 9 to 5 job but are career focused and very strong minded. You can recognize this type of person on the job within a group or team of employees. They are the ones asking (too many) questions, running the meetings later than expected, or even at times challenging decisions being made by higher authority within your company. This person is not a deviant, nor are they selfish minded. They are simply ambitious and emboldened with sometimes brash but often incredibly genuine ideas.

Are their ideas always the right idea? Hell no.

But they have enthusiasm and hope for a greater purpose. And this is uncommon. The sad truth about most people in the workforce today is that many of them do not live up to expectation and often do the least amount possible to keep their paycheck. 

What's My Motivation?

My advice.. Remain steadfast in your journey to self employment. Then push on to employ other people who live and breath ambition just as you do. The work will be hard and there will be no such thing as a safe zone but, the ideas will come and you have the potential to cultivate an entire community of hard working people.
