Een stukje uit het boek 'Entrepreneurial Finance' van Steven Rogers:

 

WHY BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR?

A Harris Interactive study found that 47 percent of Americans who do not currently own their own business have dreamed of starting their own business. Now, why do people want to become entrepreneurs? Why has entrepreneurship become so popular?

Everyone has a different reason for wanting to start a business. Inc. magazine surveyed the owners listed in the Inc. magazine 500 and found that the number one reason these entrepreneurs gave for starting their own company was to gain the independence to be able to control their schedule and workload. In fact, 40 percent of the respondents indicated that they started their own companies to "be my own boss."

 

Many people become entrepreneurs because they loathe working for others. As one person said, he became an entrepreneur because having a job was worse than being in prison:

 

In prison: You spend the majority of your time in an 8 x 10 cell.

At work: You spend most of your time in a 6 x 8 cubicle.

 

In prison: You get three free meals a day.

At work: You only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

 

In prison: You can watch TV and play games.

At work: You get fired for watching TV and playing games.

 

In prison: You get your own toilet.

At work: You have to share.

 

In prison: You spend most of your life looking through bars from the inside wanting to get out.

At work: You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars!

 

In prison: There are wardens who are often sadistic.

At work: They are called MANAGERS!


Always think beyond stage 1.

Leuk stukje, vooral de "jail vs work" vergelijking, gelukkig kun je dit zelf ook beïnvloeden. :)
