By Loral Langemeier (Via Live Out Loud) – “It’s safer to start a business than stay in a job.”
Yup, read that one more time.
A lot of people fear jumping into the entrepreneurial world because they don’t feel safe. They don’t feel safe not knowing that their income is guaranteed or that they’ll be able to make reliable income. They fear going out and having to support themselves.
Let me tell you something – having a W-2 job, that’s what’s not safe.
How many of your friends, family members, colleagues, co-workers, classmates or acquaintances have been let go by a company who doesn’t care about them? How many of these people have had their position cut by a company who looks at them as a notch against their budget, instead of a viable asset? How many talented and 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.”
You see, creating your own cash flow, starting your own business, making 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.
So, next time you’re thinking about taking that next step into entrepreneurship and your start getting afraid, just remember – it’s more dangerous trying to keep a W-2 job than it is to strap up your boots and create your own cashflow.
