I run a startup. Lean and mean, 16-hour days. Everything we do is ours. When we thought of hiring another person, it quickly became clear that we could not handle an employee. I had to become an entrepreneur. We could not pay for insurance, supervise them, offer them a stable salary. Why because all those things that are stable about a job are the opposite of a startup.
Today the number of entrepreneurs in the world is 380 million. That means for every nineteen people you meet – one will be an entrepreneur. Is that a lot? I think that’s very low actually. What are the other 18 doing? Ok, some of them are kids, some are seniors.
