It's how you see it...
I'm not looking to work for myself.
I want others to work for me.
Same goal, different outcome. When I think of being a successful entrepreneur and wealthy, I think of having the freedom to do what I want when I want, financially and time-wise.
You simply own a job when you work for yourself and you still have to work the same amount of hours or even more when you work for yourself. But, when others work for you, they do most of the work and you work 2-3 hours a day if that.
My goal has always been to create businesses that I can hire OTHER people to run and I can be off on vacations with my family or just jump up and go and do as I please without worrying about if this or that is going to get done today because I'm the one who has to do it.
Wealth is about more than money.
