"What I am looking for is wealth. Not just cold hard cash, wealth is about everything that accompanies a “good” life. "


I have had the pleasure of working in companies and working for myself. I can see the appeal of both sides. I am not going to get into the plus and minuses of each-side, there are plenty of well written blogs out there that do that.

My good friends, Dan and Ian, run a podcast called TMBA podcast and they say it best on EP#511. For some inspiration and good advice, make sure to listen to them as well.


Here are their top podcast to listen to:


1. Do you Need to Quit Your Job to Build a Successful Business?

2.The Alchemy of Pitching – What To Consider When Selling Yourself or Your Business via Email

3. The Middle Class Mind

4.A Ten-Year Retrospective on The 4-Hour Workweek : How Location-Independent Entrepreneurs Taught the World to Build Businesses from Anywhere


If you are reading this, you are thinking or are currently working for yourself. For those already working for yourselves the next stop is to work on the company.


The business you are working on right now, whether it be Amazon, a digital product or even a physical business, needs not be only a piggy bank, it should provide wealth too.
