Taking control of your future
Quite a while back, SEO blog SEO 2.0 had a post entitled “Hey Freelancer: Are You a Worker or an Entrepreneur?” which really made me think.
Back when I was freelancing as my sole source of income, I was so caught up in being a worker, that I didn’t even realize I wasn’t working towards being an entrepreneur. This article woke me up a bit… too bad it was many months too late! 🙂
So how about the rest of you out there? Are you worker bees, or are you entrepreneurs?
I am a worker and I busied myself working online and a full time housewife as well. I managed my time taking care of my children, bring them to school and work in between. I want to have a business of my own someday because I know its more productive than being a worker.
The biggest thing I have learned after many years of self employment is you have to find/build a product to be really successful. You need to be able to take whatever you’ve done, package it, and do it 1000 times more for only a little more effort, or else you’re going to have a lot of trouble making it to the entreprenure side of the equation.
