Let me get straight to it. If you are getting an unemployment check, that amounts to the government giving you start-up capital for your business. This is not to say don’t look for a job; but I am saying that you should actively pursue starting a business. Ultimately, we are all responsible for ourselves. We have to feed ourselves and our families. So, why wait for someone to give you permission to live your life?
Let’s look at this from another angle. When you work for someone, they control you. Who tells you how much you are worth? Who controls when you work? Who dictates how much time you have to spend with your family? Your employer is the one who makes those decisions for you. Consequently, asking someone else to create a job is like asking the slave master not to let me be free. You are worth more than that.
With that said, I want to make it plain. If you want to hurt the establishment, create your own job. Find other entrepreneurs and build a power base. Do that and you won’t need big business to do anything for you. Support small businesses that support you and stop concerning yourself with what someone else doesn’t want to do for you. Occupy Wall Street, change you. Change your mindset. You already have the power to do what you want to have done.
