How independent?

Granite Park Chalet room
GNP. Sharing this place with others is a different kind of beautiful.

If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make a living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances.

Albert Einstein

Being your own boss means you have to worry about everything. You also have final say on every decision. This is freedom.

Live within your means and spend less than you earn.

You have no responsibility to conform to expectations

Glacier Park
One of the opportunities for “bad weather” is you have the place almost to yourself.

I have no responsibility to live up to what others expect of me. That’s their mistake, not my failing.  – Richard Feynman

 

As an entrepreneur, you make the rules.

This is how it must be.

Seriously, why would you follow someone else’s map for your journey – and this assumes you are going somewhere no one has been before.

To discover new (better) ways to do what’s always been done, you need to do it differently.

And this is exactly what fuels your passion.

This means new thinking, new rules, new everything, new results.

Pretty cool, huh?

Fer sure.

Well done.

Who’s the World’s most creative entrepreneur?

Every Vulture backed off with the Eagle present.

 

i am not Elon Musk, but i am as creative an entrepreneur as any other small business owner who’s trying to make our world a better place. You might feel similarly.

Dear Son

Make hundreds of dollars an hour in your underwear?

Disney Institute Customer Service Speakers
Disney Institute social media post.

Would earning $600 a week on a hypothetical 20-hour workweek appeal to you? That’s $30/hour, working on your own terms.

Michael, let’s review the key points from last night’s swimming pool conversation:

  • A $30/hour wage is realistic. And could easily double or triple, or more.
  • You’d work when you wanted, wherever you wanted.
  • You’d work as much or as little as you wanted.
  • You’d get paid after i get paid.
  • You don’t need to sell anything.

You only need to find business professionals who believe in three things:

  1. Believe Disney’s business model could work Magic for their organization
  2. They are passionate about continual improvement.
  3. They have a financial capacity to pay for world-class benchmarking.

 

Once you established your most effective and efficient structure and process, you could conceivably work four hours a week and make hundreds of dollars per hour, in your underwear, if you wanted.
