Growing up I had 2 male role models: My dad and my uncle.
We were poor. My dad worked hard, but we were poor. He always had a good stable job, and then at night either he went to law school or after graduating, he did legal work to try and make ends meet.
I love my dad.
My uncle was rich. He was a lawyer. He had lots of time and lots of money.
I wanted to be like him.
I decided early on that I didn’t want a job, I wanted to be a lawyer.
It wasn’t until college that I realized
I don’t want to be a lawyer, I want to run a business.
What I didn’t realize at the time was that my uncle ran a business.
Yes, he was a lawyer, he did legal work, but he also had others doing legal work for him. He didn’t have to show up to work.
He ran a business.
Today my idea of a business is something that runs itself.
If you HAVE to show up to work or the business doesn’t run, you just have a job.
Sure, it might be a high paying job, but it’s still a job. It’s not passive income.
I want you to become the CEO and run a BUSINESS, not a JOB.
Hiring skilled workers is the best way I know if to start stepping away from your business and building passive income.
