The 'Unexpected Entrepreneur': Stumble Upon a Life You Never Knew You Wanted
Feb 24, 2017

Imagine today is your final day of working for anyone but yourself.

Imagine walking out of your office, and sitting down instead at your computer at home...to work on a project that is of your creation, just for yourself.

Imagine never having to think, 'God, why do I have to work so much,' because the work you do is a labour of love - and feels like love.

For most people, this day comes when they retire. The day they walk out of what, in hindsight, seems like a time-stealing, soul-eating, talent-exhausting place - the job.

When you're young and excited to change the world, the word 'job' carries all sorts of wondrous possibilities. By the time you realise what 'job' really is (JOB = Just Over Broke), it's too late and you've wasted not just your youth but most everything else.

But for you...that day can come as soon as tomorrow. Increasingly now, every day, more people are choosing to wave cheerful goodbyes to their jobs to do work that makes them rich, instead of some corporate stooge.

And this is happening all over the world. Not just in some distant west, but right here at home. In a small town in Telangana...in a hill station in the Himalayas....in cities and towns across India, a small revolution is in the making by those who find themselves in the new position of what Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup, calls the 'unexpected entrepreneur'.

Wealth is no longer about a paycheque...or the size of your company...or titles or promotions.
