Listen to this podcast
All right, ladies and gents, we're back, back yet again, they haven't shut us up yet. Tonight we're going to talk about a little thing they call
Tell them the name of the show, it's a business reality show
It is. I was getting there. Thank you. Thanks for piping in. Anyway, business in reality. Here we go. We're going to talk about business of your own versus being an employee. And it's going to get hot tonight. It's going to get hot, because.
Being an employee sucks.
Because we're all like on the third or fourth beer by now
There's a lot of business owners in this room,
We're going to disagree, you're wrong.
And the, well you know, Lee the strong man over there, he's got some strong opinions of, maybe we'll let him start it off.
We're going to talk about jobs versus business, and having a business of your own.
Oh my god, he's walking and pacing with his microphone. You've got to see this.
I'm pacing. I have to pace because this is a serious thing here.
I think there is one thing we can all agree on, that's for sure. Having your own business is definitely the best way to go.
Anybody out there have a job that's listening to this?
I hope not.
You poor fool.
If you do, I am going to help you change your mind.
Quit. Quit today. We can show you how.
Salvation is yours, for $9.95 a month.
Do you really want to spend your life helping other people make money, or would you rather put it in your own pocket? I mean, that's what it boils down to.
It's not about money. It's about having a good time.
Well, and the next thing I was going to say is, it's not about having money, it's about having a good time. It's enjoying what you do, taking pride in your work, and really enjoying your relationships with the people you do business with.
Now I'd like to state that I have converted every one of my college roommates and my son, and everybody that I really know closely into a consultant. Nobody has a job.
Well, after that, I'm going to get a job.
Paul likes to take the credit for a lot, and he is a very creditable guy.
No, that's creditable.
Hey, I told you to become a consultant, idiot.
Sometimes he's even incredible.
He can't even spell incredible.
With that said, I'm probably the only one in the room who has been an employee for over,
So you're just stupid.
For over 24 years.
Oh my god.
Well that's a long time.
That's a long time.
It's almost my whole life!
Andy, Andy, Andy, how was that?
With three major companies. It sucked.
What was wrong with it?
So why did you continue it?
You made a lot of money, didn't you?
Let's take a look at
Isn't it all about the money?
Let's, well, wait a minute. Let's take a look at what happens.
And benefits. Look at the benefits.
What happens in a company? Doesn't have to be a big company. A moderate size company.
They buy your soul for cash.
They buy your brain. They buy your mind.
No, they buy your soul. They don't just buy your brain. They buy,
They're selling security, they're selling security.
Now look, what is the most, Andy, what is the most important thing you have in your life, really? The only limited commodity that you have, period. Everything else is pretty much limited.
Because you're being a whore because they're buying your time for money.
You bet. They say 40 hours, but noooooo. It's more than that.
Right, so you are willing to sell,
Let me guess, Andy, you were on the thing they like to call "salary?"
Oooh they love to put you on that salary thing, right?
You get out with your bachelor's degree,
It looks pretty good.
And you're immediately a member of technical staff. Well, that means you're salaried. That means you wear a white collar,
Like, don't worry about you, we'll take care of you. What do you want?
But I'm telling you, you're selling the most important asset you've got, which is time, for money, that's being a whore.
Actually, it's worse than that. It's not just your time...
