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.

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.
