#21: The Seven Factors That TRAP Smart Business Owners (part 1)
My oldest son, Finn, and I were talking about careers the other day.
I told him that not everyone can have breakfast dates with their kids, or make their own schedule, or do what they love.
And he said: “do you mean the people who have to sit in booths [cubicles] and just type, type, type all day long?”
I was shocked.
9 years old, and he already understands what it looks like to be trapped in a J-O-B.
But here’s the sad thing.
Most business owners would be better off sitting in a cubicle all day long.
At least they’d get a regular paycheck.
At least they’d get to turn off their computer and go home at the end of the day.
At least they’d get weekends and vacations off (like, really off).
Instead, most business owners have built a business that’s MORE restrictive than any job.
It eats their bank account, monopolizes their attention, demands their time, destroys their health, compromises their relationships, and erases their free time.
It’s all-consuming…and it doesn’t give much in return.
