i beg to differ.. spend more time with your family when you have business? what do you think about having a business? just bumming around? for your information having a business means working double time.. its easier said than done.. if you understand what i mean.. its not just plunking your money and waiting for it to grow..
what do you understand about having a business? being self employed, being an investor, or owning a business? these 3 are very much different..
You probably are not a real business person with the way you think and even the way you present your point of view.
Being in business increases your risks as opposed to just having a regular job. But on the other hand, your rewards are far greater than any job can offer in terms of finances and personal satisfaction.
When you're in business, that means you own your time which ultimately boils down to your being able to spend time with anything you want like your family,a hobby or even charity. That of course presupposes that you are earning enough from whatever business you are in (bec pursuing a hobby or doing charity work requires some money).
I disagree with your statement of working double time which means working very hard. I think you should work smartly rather doing things the hard way.
What kind of business are you in by the way? You mean you dont have time for anything else but your business? You're probably running a sari-sari store or a karinderya that's why you're not enjoying yourself. How come you have time to post here?
I saw you in another thread saying that you earn a lot from your salary. Does it mean that you're really a slave more than a businessman?
To the thread owner and others who reads through this thread. I'd like to encourage you to go into business anytime you feel you're ready financially and psychologically. There's no other way to be financially free but going into business. Of course you should choose a business that's close to your heart. That way, you wont need to enslave yourself to your business like the way the above poster have pictured it to be.
