First of all, I have worked in several jobs before starting my own sole
proprietary consultancy business back in the year 2000.
I actually think jobs are a great place to start for many but at the
same time I would also be an advocate for finding a way to start your
own business as soon as you can.
For me personally the transition from what I call a job mentality to
a business mentality was hugely challenging because all my mental and
financial conditioning had been centred around security and safety.
My greatest challenge in going from a job to my own business was breaking
the mental shackles of personal worthiness, which meant I had to build
myself from the ground up.
If you do the research you will discover that jobs are not designed to
make life easy for you in the long term because of their design limitations.
In general most jobs have a two-year lifespan in terms of their human
happiness and challenge levels.
Sadly, for most people, eventually a job will suck the life out of you.
In my experience, the problem with jobs is that they are limited because
you don’t own anything outside of the skills you perform.
The skills you do develop from your job is the one redeeming positive
because it’s possible that those skills can be transferable if you
want them to be. and

With a job, you don’t own any of the infrastructure and you don’t own

are uninspiring, manipulative and basically lazy.
If you’re the sort of person who has any ounce of potential, aspiration
and motivation, then you definitely don’t get to choose how much your
Remember, one of the jobs of the person who owns the business is too
buy you at wholesale and sell you at retail.
From a financial intelligence perspective you job provides you with
little to zero leverage tax wise, meaning most people in jobs get
slaughtered and never see it, let alone do anything about it.
Did you know that the top paying jobs that pay six figures plus take
a minimum of 4 years of training and up to 11 years of training for
incomes of $250,000 plus.
On the other hand a well designed profitable business is not only
something that can pay for your lifestyle it is something that can be
leveraged, expanded and passed on to future generations.
At some point in your future why wouldn’t you ask yourself the following
“am I prepared to work as hard for myself as I am for my boss”?
“is what I’m currently doing moving me towards my dreams and goals?
“from a personal growth and financial intelligence perspective, what’s
the best thing I could invest my time and energy into”?
that is my observations this week,
