Most solopreneurs dread doing their bookkeeping. Some give every piece of paper to an accountant at tax time. Some don’t open their bank statement when it arrives each month or cringe as they look at the balance.
Make all the decisions yourself. One person making all the decisions doesn’t mean better decisions, and certainly not faster ones. For a company to grow, the team has to grow, and decisions must be delegated. Smart growth companies hire decision makers, not more helpers.
My time is too valuable to spend trying to “convince” anyone of anything. Think about… do doctors try and convince other people to become doctors? Do Accountants try and convince other people to become Accountants Camden? Even if they do try, what are their chances of being successful. People have a choice of how they want to live and not everyone chooses our path to financial freedom (bizarre I know). The thing is though, the negative people in my warm market wouldn’t stand a chance of being successful if I had to “convince” them.
The second way to look at it is that while Corporate CEO’s say we can’t afford to enable workers involved in negotiating contracts for wages benefits and retirement, not one CEO would work without having a contract for their own salary and benefits. Remember how our obliging Congress has forked over almost three trillion dollars to these Robber Baron Financiers, and they stuck their hands in the till for bonuses after destroying our economy?
No one has come up with an acceptable reason for why Middle Class America should be expected to just accept being outsourced, folded, spindled, and mutilated just so Wealthy CEO’s and Stockholders can assure themselves of 120% profits. Free market economics is not some scientific principle it is selfishness, greed, and arrogance cloaked as scientific theory.
Thirdly, developers like me tend to be geeks. What does that imply? In his book “The Inmates are Running the Asylum&” (which is required reading for anyone who wants to communicate with a developer), Alan Cooper observes, “A geek would rather be right than rich” (A trait which, my tax accountant, my banker, my spouse and all of my business partners can testify is true and apparently unchangeable.) This basically means that, once I have understood a requirement, other interpretations might be possible, but mine is the only right one.
Now that the wardrobe has been updated to include nice jackets, skirts, and pants that can be mixed and matched to make the selection even more inviting, it’s time to get more out of the closet. Most women enter this domain that has a variety of articles hanging up, or laying down just waiting on someone to select them. The good news is that as long as the selection includes a staple like a well-fitted jacket, a classic skirt or pants that every wardrobe should have, then a woman can be ready at a moment’s notice – for anything.
