SPI #128 to #130 – Affiliate Links & Income Report & Five Reasons not to become Self Employed

Pat is not sure if he should hide his affiliate links … well he does now (end of 2013) … seems he made up his mind …

… and we have reached September 2009 … his income report for August 2019 is up a couple of hundred bugs, has not reached its former height, but more than 9.000,- is not bad at all …

After one year of self employment, Pat gives five reasons why you shouldn’t:

  • You are responsible for everything, you make your own decision, nobody tells you what to do … of course that’s one of the reasons to become self employed … but sometimes you would like to hand over that responsibility and just do tasks somebody tells you to do …
  • You are master over your time, you can schedule on your whimsy … which again is nice, but sometimes, you actually will do nothing, and other times you do too much …
  • Procrastination … it’s really much easier to achieve a mind of procrastination than at a work place where your boss looks over your shoulder all of the time …
  • You are sooo alone, no coworkers, … well that depends on the size of your company 😉
  • No benefits, … true, you get no retirement plan (actually not true, set up one yourself!) … no medical, or dental plan (again, setup one yourself!) … no paid vacations (wasn’t the idea of passive income, to get paid even when you are not working?) … no free lunches (… which you actually can pay for yourself when you earn more …)
