Few things are as dangerous as half-truth.
In as much as I agree that one shouldn’t breed ingratitude by virtue of comparing himself with another, I also seek to remind us that two people drive an economy; business owners and THOSE THAT WORK FOR THEM.
I’m not an employee; I used to be, but that doesn’t make me think that employees are cowards or clueless.
Truth is, WE ALL CAN’T BE ENTREPRENEURS.
The first 100.
richest folks didn’t climb there all by themselves; they leveraged and still leverage on EMPLOYEES.
Dangote is not his own CFO, Gates is not his own sale manager, Buffet has a secretary. If we all become entreprenuers, who will work for who? On what corridors would teamwork and collaboration play out?
I understand that it’s ‘safer’ to be an employee, but that doesn’t make it a sabotage of your highest human expression or pursuit.
Another truth is, YOU CAN CREATE WEALTH AS AN EMPLOYEE.
World renowned entreprenuer, Robert Kiyosaki is worth less than $100 million but Facebook’s COO, Sheryl Sandberge is worth over $1 billion, and she has time and working condition to author books and speak at events.
Entreprenuership is not synonymous with financial intelligence. You can be an employee and still be an investor.
We all can’t be employees; same God that made a Moses also availed him an Aaron. Some have been destined to fulfill their meaning beside another man; it doesn’t conot cowardice, inferiority or cluelessness.
It’s also possible to be both an employee and entreprenuer in same lifetime.
