1./ I've recently been offered a full-time job at a trading/investment firm which would have me supervise a group of traders, helping them maintain stability of mind, advising them, and monitoring their performance.
2./ Sounds super cool but after sleeping on it, I decided to kindly decline the offer. To me, self-employment is true freedom even though it comes with a caveat: Uncertainty.
3./ Most people fantasize about the idea of self-employment but they hate uncertainty and would rather work for someone else because of the safety net. They like the order, comfort, and consistency of a time-clock-punching job.
4./ Nothing wrong with that. Personally, I do what I do because I like what I do. It's grown on me. And I've learned so much about myself in those last couple of years. I've developed a reliable stream of income despite the uncertainty.
5./ Through trial and error, I have organized my business in a way that doesn't make me a slave to my computer. I've taken so long to build the kind of life that I've built, and there is no amount of money anyone could pay me to work for them so that I could give that up.
