I have a family member who owns a store, this store sells things like: furniture, antiques, collectibles. Basically useless shit. I ended up having to be a helper in this store for about half a year. This was probably one of the longest six months of my life. In this article I will discuss some of the frustrations that can occur when an individual has to work in a family owned business.
Now that I am out of college, my family expects me to get a ‘real job.’ I have a part-time job at UPS as a box unloader and I am spending most of my time building up passive income streams and potential businesses. But building up income over time does not seem to be considered a ‘real job’ in our society. In this article I will discuss what may be a ‘real job’ and why.
Eventually, I would like to be financially free. I am not talking about waiting until I am old either. The current system of getting a job and then becoming financially free only when you are too old to enjoy the freedom seems like a system that shouldn’t have nearly as much appeal as it seems to have to people. In this article I will discuss why people are still attached to the old system of traditional jobs and retirement strategies.
