Why you should never work for someone else.By Jamie Green

You know everyone gets to a point in their life when they start hearing that faint inner voice telling them, “It’s time to get a job.” In my case the voice was coming from my Father and even though I was only 14 he thought it high time I get to work. Here’s your life: go to school, graduate, get a job. From the time we're born that’s the pattern drummed into our thick skulls and we never have the fortitude to do something different.
We all think that trading our time for money is a good thing (code for getting a job), but in reality it’s the dumbest way to make a living. Why? Because you only make money when you’re working and if you want to make more you have to work more…yikes! Plus, you are basically a slave to the company who controls your every move; telling you when to work and how to work. And if you should make a mistake they are there ready to punish or penalize you. So, now you know why getting a job is the dumbest way to make money.
Don’t feel bad if this is the path you went down. I too was suckered in and for 23 years I worked for the company, getting up early, staying late, whatever they wanted I did it and without question. Then, the best thing ever happened, I got laid off. No warning or anything I came into work one morning and my boss was there already, he had my desk packed up and handed me my final paycheck. At the time, I had no idea that it was literally going to be my last paycheck forever.
At first, I was worried and sent out about 100 resumes. I only had one interview from all those applications and it was for a crummy job as a night supervisor and only paid half of what I was used to. Well, I got depressed for a few weeks and one morning while I was staring at the help wanted ads (yes they still had printed newspapers back then) I had a light bulb moment, "I hate having a job and looking for a job is even more excruciating."
So, I fired up the laptop and began searching for ‘work at home’ information. I searched for businesses I could start with little or no money as I didn't have much savings left and no income coming in. Anyway I came across a sales program that had:
- No product I had to create.
- No customer service emails or phone calls.
- No warehousing or shipping inventory.
- No cold calling or sales quotas.
- No set schedule.
- Best of All...No Boss or Company to fire me again!
In addition to this program (I ended up with a lot of free time) I began exploring other programs for generating self-employment income. I have featured them on this website. I just followed the instructions I received to the letter and stuck with it. Once the first one was successful (practically running by itself) I started another and then another. Now, I am free to pursue whatever I want and will never get a job again and more importantly never worry about money.
Take a few minutes to look around this site. I have investigated all of these systems and anyone has the potential to make real money by implementing them. But, please don’t give up, it does take a week or so to get things rolling but it’s well worth the sacrifice as the residual income will continue for many years. The program that got me started can be found HERE.
