business or job

August 15, 2010 8:29pm CST
I read a book that says when you have business the harder you work the more you earn, while when you have a job the harder you work the more your employer earns. It says that business is better than a job. The poor work for money the rich have their money works for them.

While it may be true that the harder ou work the more your employee earns, for the same is also true that the employee is ther person, who has also invented in the business, so the more then risk the more the gain.

why not putting all the effort in creating business than maintaining a job.

It's right. But we must try very very much by ourself and work hard in order to reach to that. We can make things that the rich people do if we believe we can.

wise words, you you have a business, you want to work, you want to get more money, but when you have a job, "there we go again" we have to work for others.

of course running a businees is better than doing a job.. it is true you can earn through a job.. but the owner is erning more than that.. and we should try to be that owner adn naturally our earnings will go higher.. however most of the businesses became bankrput because of the economic crisis and we have to take that risk before starting a business..

This makes a lot of sense duds, however, I would encourage you to adjust your thinking just a wee bit. When you get paid for your time, you can only get paid, so much. Even if you get paid say 100$ per hour, you could only earn 2400$ in one day...more or less. But if you get paid for your results instead of your time, there is no limit to what you can earn. That is the way a business works, or commissioned salespeople, even MLM, when you get paid for your results, and if you are a regular employee you get paid for your time. To be wealthy, get paid for your results not your time, at least on a little bit to start out, that is what I read in T.Harv Ekerds, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. Just keep in mind not everybody "wants" the responsibility of being wealthy and are quite comfortable with a steady paying job, rather then the chance of a high paying one, that could earn you debt rather then cash, depending on how business is doing that week. Sincerely and With Appreciation. CJScott.

I definitely think there is some truth to that, otherwise businesses would never be able to employ people. And this is, to be honest, the reason I hope I get to be self employed one day!
