"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover." -
- H. Jackson Brown
What does your ultimate business look like ?
What is your perfect career list ?
When answering, typically people focus on negative experiences:
no boss, no commute, no alarm clock, no employee’s, no politics, no discrimination, no education requirements
and reach for the positives:
great product/ service, great income, unlimited income, personal growth, residual income, enjoyable people, more time-freedom, meaningful environment, perks, international opportunities, contribution to causes, low startup cost, low risk, tax benefits, fun and economy proof.
So is this possible ?
If we consider the roles and incomes that people traditionally follow having finished school, qualifications, potential short-term travel and then settled into the workplace, they include:
1. Working class or labourers : regulated by either a company or self-employed & limited by most of the positives
2. Professional, administrative or managerial workers
Office based employees of a company to perform a role
Formerly recognised as safe and secure, these roles are now known for the premise that whilst you might be loyal to the company, the company (leaders) are more focused on making ends meet.
“People don’t leave Companies, they leave People”
The Professional class attitudes fall into:
1. Achievers and 2. Hiders
1. Achievers are ambitious, wish to succeed, are motivated, energetic, full of ideas and seek advancement.
The downside is they become targets, they are seen as a threat to potentially advancing their position taking someone else’s and are a target for discrimination.
