The only way to control your own future is to own your own business
There was a time when being an employee was indeed a safe place. No more. Do you really want to work 40 or 60 hours a week for your employer and fire you when you mess up something for the first time or when you are no longer indispensable? In addition, since the business may be closed without any avoidance measures, your fate does not really depend on you.
The only way to control your own future is to own your own business and influence the direction of the business quickly and directly through daily actions.
In the past few years, more and more people work alone and form collaborative networks instead of forming companies with leaders and employees. A true distributed company.
The work as a gear is inherited from the Industrial Revolution. It is a 200-year-old idea. It has gradually disappeared and replaced by more agile and efficient models for those who are willing to leap forward.
Think about what happens if you are sick or unable to work for some reason. You will not be able to help the company you work for, unless they are obliged to keep you as an employee, what will happen is that you will be fired.
If you have your own product portfolio, you will still earn income even if you have a problem that keeps you out of work for several weeks.
For example, think about it if you are a programmer and suddenly can’t look at the screen due to eye problems, or you start to suffer from RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). This is not a disease that disappears easily. Improvement may require several Months or even years.
In this case, the only way to maintain a livelihood is to conduct business based on products in autonomous driving mode, so it can also work without having to spend 6, 8, 10 hours a day to get a salary.
This is an era when individuals have extraordinary tools to successfully achieve independent business. Imagine how the tools for bringing the business to the world comfortably at home have improved over the past ten years. Enter your credit card details and you can use the same tools to launch AdWords or Facebook Ads campaigns like large brands. This is an incredible opportunity, and it will be an unfortunate miss.
