Let me ask you a question. Is your boss better than you? Are they smarter than you? Are they more talented than you? Are they some kind of celebrity? No? Then who is your boss and why do you work for them?
Who’s the Boss?
Maybe your boss is the owner of the business you work in. Maybe they are just a manager in a store, or some other kind of establishment. But regardless of the business you are in and regardless of who your boss is, the fact of the matter is that they are no better than you. Maybe you already know that. Hopefully you do. But if you know that they are just a normal person the same as you and me, why have you chosen to work for them?
It’s possible that you prefer to let someone else take the lead. The one in charge is the one who is ultimately responsible for everything. For some people, that can be comforting. There are those who don’t like making decisions, either because they are afraid of making the wrong one, or because they just don’t care. Perhaps they are not invested in the business they are in, which is not really a great way to spend your working life. We all have to work. Shouldn’t we be interested in what we are doing?
Many of us, however, don’t always like having a boss. We don’t like not having a say in things. We don’t like being told what to do all the time. We don’t like having someone else look at our hard work and judge it to determine how much money we should be making. Most of all, we don’t like breaking our backs so that someone else can enjoy the fruits of our labour.
Shouldn’t You Be the Boss?
So, if your boss is not really superior to you in any way, but is actually reaping the benefits of the work you do, wouldn’t it be better to be the boss? Wouldn’t it be great to give yourself the day off so that you could spend it with friends or family? How great would if be to be able to give yourself a raise? Hello, me. I see I have been working extra hard lately and I think I deserve a raise, so I am giving me one. Oh, and while I’m at it, why don’t I take a long weekend and go away with the family?
That’s the kind of boss I’m interested in working for.
It’s a given that you are going to work. You are probably going to work quite hard, for many, many years. How can it make any sense to you to work for someone else, helping them get the things they want, while denying yourself much of what you want? If you are putting out all that effort anyway, shouldn’t you be the one to benefit the most from it?
Now, I suppose that I shouldn’t make too many assumptions. Maybe you love your job. Maybe you are doing something that you find fulfilling and are well-paid for it. If so, that is awesome and I am very happy for you! Not many people can say that they love their job and make a good salary.
If you don’t love your job,though, or if you don’t earn enough to have the life you desire, what’s stopping you from changing it? We’ve already established that those who are living potentially better lives are no different from you. Not smarter. Not better.
If they are anything that you aren’t, they may be better informed.They may have learned something that you haven’t learned yet. But you can learn.
Learn How to Be Your Own Boss
A few short months ago, I knew nothing about building a website, but here I am now, talking to you… I had no idea that it was possible to work for myself, because “everything online is a scam”, or so I thought. But not everything is. It takes some digging, but you can find amazing stuff online, and fortunately for you, I’ve already done that digging. I have been burned by multiple scams. I have bought into false promises. Then, I discovered an honest, legitimate way to start building my own site, my own dreams. And now I want to share it with you because I honestly believe that everyone deserves the chance to create a better life for themselves, even if many won’t take it.
If you decide to come on this journey with me (and have no doubt, I will be there with you), then you can learn to create your own online business. Or, maybe you just want to learn about things like SEO, SERP and other crazy-sounding things. SEO, for example, is Search Engine Optimization, and some people are able to turn that alone into a career. Maybe you will, too. Or maybe you will be like me and see how people can benefit from this training and go out to let them know about it.
The choice is yours, because you will be free to be your own boss. You will do what you want, when you want. You will start working for you!
Commitment is a Scary Word
Fortunately, you don’t have to commit, although for real lasting success, some sort of commitment to yourself will eventually be required. But for now, why not simply take a look? It’s free. Honest. There is no cost to you, but the potential benefit… well, my words won’t be what convinces you. Looking for yourself and seeing what is offered? That should be more than enough for you to see what you stand to gain.
I understand what it’s like to want– even need— a change. I spent over 25 years giving the best of my time and effort so that others could benefit. Now I am working toward my own goals, building something for me, my wife, my kids. It is something I always dreamed of and now it is happening. I would love to see it happen for others, too.
All I can say is that you deserve the things you dream about. You deserve happiness, you deserve success. All it takes is a bit of determination and a bit of knowledge. You can provide the former, we can provide the latter. It’s time to be your own boss.
Once you get started, I look forward to helping in any way I can.
