When you are in a 9-5 job, everything is structured, and that’s great for some people. I was very happy getting out of unemployment at the age of 22 and into some form of structure where I got up at the same time every morning, got home and ate at the same time at night and did the same things at the weekend. But it also meant that I had a limited lifestyle. I couldn’t have random days off because corporates don’t allow it. You couldn’t work at different times, and sometimes you are even made to feel awful that you have a Doctor’s appointment!
It’s also hard to visualise your future, whether that be the short term where you want to go away for the weekend or on your next holiday – you might just be able to afford it but you might have to scrimp and save.
Being an entrepreneur means you are in control of your own destiny. With the right money mindset, you can manifest what you want to with your job; set the right price for your clients or product and get your marketing right and you will find that living from paycheck to paycheck is no longer necessary. You will start to realise you can afford impromptu weekends away in another country, or that you can buy that iWatch you have been eyeing up.
Put your fate in your own hands, not in someone else’s. I always like to say – if you don’t follow your dreams, you will end up working for someone who did.
