I’ve been broke, and being broke sucks balls. Having Enough is awesome. How would I define “Enough”? Enough means that you can take a friend out to a nice lunch and not have to worry about how much it costs. I have hung out with a couple of billionaires—my experiences indicate that being a billionaire is just incrementally better than Enough.
The best part of creating a company is defining a culture. If you can find a company that has a culture you like and will pay you Enough to solve problems, go work for that company. Don’t start your own.
A very different take than many of the wantrapreneur gurus out there. With so many great companies doing good work, there’s a certain appeal to finding a job that pays you well, lets you live your life, and you can still do work you enjoy without the slog of running your own business.
