“I want to start my own business after employment… You can never become rich if you are employed.”
These are some of the statements we hear everyday as people speak on the cons of employment.
The youth are often encouraged to venture into entrepreneurship – never mind the fact that no one cares where they will get their capital from.
The truth is, not everyone was cut out for entrepreneurship and there is nothing wrong with that.
There is a notion that those who have started a business are ‘smarter’ than those with 8-5 jobs. This is not true.
While some thrive in opening and running businesses, others thrive in proper structures of employment.
These are people who will leave school, look for an internship, perform so well that they will be employed immediately after.
They will then rise through the ranks with exemplary performances and their lives will undergo drastic change, for the better.
Then there are others who never feel satisfied at the workplace and often see the need to earn a few extra coins on the side.
They might decide to have a ‘side hustle’ or leave the company altogether. Business-minded people are risk-takers who are not afraid to lose.
They identify opportunities quickly and see how they can make a kill at the earliest opportunity.
