Hey, It wasn’t my Idea

Kim was asking me the other day how someone becomes an entrepreneur, and how they can make money doing it. Thing is, entrepreneurs are usually pretty loaded folks, most of them are probably doing something they love, and I bet the split is 50/50 on the ones who just want to get rich, and those who happen to get rich doing something they’re good at.

I’m entrepreneurial at my core, but I’m not interested in ripping people off, and I have a hard time asking what I’m worth from the people who use my services. In fact that’s why we never made it out to SoCal. I’m still learning how to balance work, pay, play, and ministry, but my guess it I’ll finally stumble into more of an entrepreneurial role someday. Meanwhile, here are 10 Reasons You shouldn’t get a job:

It’s funny that when people reach a certain age, such as after graduating college, they assume it’s time to go out and get a job. But like many things the masses do, just because everyone does it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. In fact, if you’re reasonably intelligent, getting a job is one of the worst things you can do to support yourself. There are far better ways to make a living than selling yourself into indentured servitude.

Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job:

  • 1. Income for dummies
  • 2. Limited experience
  • 3. Lifelong domestication
  • 4. Too many mouths to feed
  • 5. Way too risky
  • 6. Having an evil bovine master
  • 7. Begging for money
  • 8. An inbred social life
  • 9. Loss of freedom
  • 10. Becoming a coward
