Why You Should Be An Employee
Not every one is cut out for entreprenuership....Some people just love the 8-5, 30-days-make-a-pay lifestyle.
2. It is not a crime to be an employee. Some people just aspire to be a manager or a director in a blue chip company....I know of someone who rose from the bottom in UAC to the topmost position.
3. Employees get immense benefits e.g health scheme for you and your family, retirement pay, periodic local and foreign trainings/conferences, paid vacations...these are some great stuffs you may not afford yourself. Companies that offer these exists and you will love to work for them.
4. Less concern with the various governemtal agencies who keep knocking on you door for compliance/payment/regulation etc
5. Being an entreprenuer is not a guarantee that you will be rich or have all the time in the world. There are entreprenuers who, day in day out, do LOTS OF LOW PAY CHEQUE JOBS and never have the time or money.
6. Earn lots of money and invest for your old age.
Don't just save up money and jump into the sea of "being your own boss" without guidance. There are many sharks out there, so dont bleed.

Some people just feel its too risky leaving their destiny in the hands of another man. You know with just two words, you can easily become jobless and start all over again. Very risky I must say
22 Likes 1 Share Re: Why You Should Be An Employee by HenryDion: 7:18am On Sep 01I'm an advocate of entrepreneurship, that however doesn't mean everyone should be entrepreneurs. In fact, before you become an entrepreneur, you have to first be an employee if you really aspire to attain the pinnacle. The training ground for entrepreneurs is only found within the seat of an employee. The only problem I have is when you become an employee for the wrong reasons.
No 3. This is very wrong. This entitlement mentality is the reason why you will keep having money problems till you die. No one owns you nothing.. Not even the government. The better you learn to take charge of your life is the moment you will experience real freedom.
No. 4. An entrepreneur who's financially educated pays little or nothing to taxes. If there's any one that pays ridiculous amounts, they are employees. I as an investor pays 1% tax out of my assets. I'm offered tax incentives by the government cause I help create jobs and houses. Employees pay almost 40% of their income as tax. I think Robert Kiyosaki made this more clear.
No. 6. No matter how high you're promoted, your responsibility will always try to catch up. Have you ever wonder why that money is never enough? This is what happens when you rely solely on your paycheck. Use your ssets to finance your liabilities.
If you're an employee because of fear, then you're an employee for the wrong reason.

Inasmuch as being an entrepreneur is widely perceived as a path to wealth and financial stability, there is no guarantee on it.
It largely depends on personality, zeal, motivation, natural flair and passion.
Every Tom, Dick, and Harry must not be a doctor, politician, footballer, boxer to be wealthy.
Nature made us have unique differences. Hence, only through self discovery can one activate and manifest his/her potentials.

Most employees out there just want an understanding of the business and will later open their own. If u are the boss, u can fly around the world and enjoy yourself very well but as an employee, u are owned by your employer and if your boss hear that u wanna fly around d world? U definitely know the next line of action.

i've never had the flair for entrepreneurship. I'd likely go into farming or other investments later in life.
