Yes, this post was inspired by “Do you feel like we do” Frampton Comes Alive! (1976). Oh, and yes, I was alive (age 10) in 1976. I can even remember that year. Like I tell my 16 year old daughter, “I’m way cooler than any of your friends.” She doesn’t buy it though.
Now the post… “Do you feel like we (I) do?”
(Don’t forget to read and share comments.)
I really don’t like Corporate America because it often sucks the inner spirit out of you: I’m for the little guy. The entrepreneur who wakes up in the morning dreaming, excited and ready to conquer the world. The entrepreneur who has such drive and determination that he/she goes to bed thinking about making a difference and wakes up in the middle of the night with an Ah! Ha! new idea.
I don’t like Corporate America because of the lack of freedom: As an entrepreneur, you set your schedule. You control what you do and when you do it. You decide when to go on vacation. Yes, entrepreneurs do take vacation, but many of them take the good ol laptop with them and write off the vacation. A working vacation is better than no vacation.
I don’t like Corporate America because of loser bosses: Ever felt like you know more than your boss? Ever known for sure that you know more than your boss? Bosses can be a pain in the neck for lack of a better word because we don’t use real four letter words on Create Business Growth.
I don’t like Corporate America. That’s why I don’t work in it anymore. I had a job with a Fortune 200 (not 500 and actually much closer to Fortune 100) company. I had the nice paycheck, the free airline flights, the Corporate American Express Card, my car payment made, my travel paid, a company provided cell phone, laptop, gas, yada, yada, yada, but I HATED IT. I had an inner drive to do something more.: To be an Entrepreneur! To do what I wanted, when I wanted and not to have to answer to a boss that wasted oxygen talking to me.
In closing, I’m living the dream. I’m making a difference in the lives of others and you can to: You just have to do it. You can dream all you want, but at some point, you have to take ACTION!
I want to leave you with the quote below and encourage your comments on this post. We have enough readership that the comments could go on and on if you will just TAKE ACTION…..
