If you are an employee, then, one of these things will happen to you soon: you resign, get retrenched, or retire. Gone are the days when good performance on the job guaranteed job security. Today, a computer, software, or an experienced hand from another company or country could replace you.
Many businesses are under intense economic pressure. The company you work for would downsize anytime, perhaps somebody is taking over it or it is reorganizing. The easiest way for businesses to cut cost is to eliminate human beings.
How than does one secure his job and ensure that those paychecks come in? If you want to protect and fortify your finances, fire your boss now and be your own boss.
If you have little kids or if you are young, your financial future is very important. If you are old, do you want to use social security paychecks to train your children or fund your retirement?
Rather than remain an employee, working practically all your life, resign now and start your own business and become an instant CEO. To own your company is an achievement on its own. And it guarantees steady and secured income for life. Decades ago, wealth were all individuals, today, it is corporate. The businesses generate the big money—Bill Gates is not the richest man, Microsoft is.
You are always self-employed, working for yourself and you are always the CEO of your life but you never fully pursued it. You need to fire your boss now and be your own boss. But being your own boss is a hell of a challenge, and as the day goes by, the challenges don’t go away, they become bigger. Also, the reward gets bigger too hence a CEO should develop the habit of carrying an army knife all the time so that whenever there is a loose screw or broken stuff he could fix it or whenever he sees an erring employee or a fierce competitor, he could stab him.
