“It’s safer to start a business than stay in a job.”
Yup, read that one more time, flks.
By far, the top fear holding people back from diving into the entrepreneurial world is the financial risk.
They don’t feel safe not knowing that their income is guaranteed or that they’ll be able to make a steady paycheck.
I’d venture to say that the vast majority of you reading this fear going out and having to support yourselves.
Let me tell you something – having a W-2 job, that’s what’s not safe.
How many hard-working people have woken up to an email or call from some higher-up telling them, “Thank you, but your services are no longer needed.” How many of your friends, family members, colleagues, co-workers, classmates or acquaintances have been let go by a company who didn’t care about them?
Maybe this is you and this message is hitting home a little too hard…
I can’t tell you how many people come to me because their job of 20-, 30-, 40-plus years fired them. Today, a company’s goal is to find cheap labor – not hold on to outdated skills that may come with a lot of wisdom.
This has left a lot of people out in the cold.
It turns out that having a job isn’t so safe after all…
Creating your own cash flow, starting your own business, controlling your own future – that’s the safest bet!
As an entrepreneur, who else can dictate your future when it lies solely in your hands?
Who can fire you?
Who can tell you you’re not good enough to work here anymore?
No one – you control the entire playing field.
That’s what I love about my business. I’m the top line and the bottom line. Everything starts and stops with me.
I love the ownership, responsibility and accountability that comes with having to feed my family and the families of 50-plus other employees.
That’s the safest best for me – not staying in a salaried job where I could be cut at any time.
That’s why I laugh when people tell me they don’t quit their job and start a business because it’s risky…staying in your current job and hoping your manager doesn’t come in one day and fire you, that’s what’s risky!
Next time you’re thinking about taking that next step into entrepreneurship and your start getting afraid, remember – it’s infinitely more dangerous staying in a W-2 job than it is to strap up your boots and create your own cashflow.
Diving into the entrepreneurship field means you control every aspect. You’re not at the mercy of anyone else. All the wins and losses are yours and you’re the captain of your journey.
You got what it takes?
