🏁 Everyone in my immediate circle owns a business and we shop together. When people say they want to work “for” me, I teach them how to work “with” me. I teach them how to become their own boss.
They all get scared at first and complain about job security. Eventually, I teach them there is no better security than securing your own bag. I teach them how to build their own team to generate wealth for themselves. Nothing makes me prouder than seeing them stand on their own. To see them buying cars, houses, and more businesses that they love. I also invest in my staff. If they have business ideas, I give them the seed money to test it. I don’t expect them to remain staff forever. I want to see everyone around me grow. That’s the difference between me and them. I don’t want to be the only “Boss”. I want to lead a group of bosses. Remember you can be a boss in someone else’s organization too, so don’t think you have to start your own thing.
But take that money and invest in yourself too. Nothing impresses me more than seeing someone take nothing and turn into something. I don’t get intimidated by other people coming up because I’m the best at what I do. My lane is secured. If they don’t grow you, then they owe you. Always stay loyal to your soil. Plant seeds where you reap.
