That’s a guest post I wrote for Lifehack.
You can read it here.
If I was to give advice, I’d encourage everyone to become self-employed.
You don’t get any benefits by working for someone else.
Actually, your performance is bad because you just don’t have the motivation; you usually do something you don’t like; and you probably stay in an office from 9 to 5. Eventually you start dreading Mondays, become depressed because you never do what you want, and you realize that the balance and security this job may give you can disappear in an instant by losing it. And then what?
I think self-employment is the answer.
Nothing beats being your own boss, doing what you enjoy and are passionate about, making a decent income by actually offering value to others and having free time whenever you feel like. It’s freedom in so many ways.
