Myths of Being Your Own Boss

I’ve decided to write on a couple of startup related topics that are close to my heart. I’ve been posting these on Facebook for awhile, so I thought – why not (once again) revive my blog by doing some sharing here?


Please know this. I was a blogger known for being a troll before NS unplugged me from the internet. I like to joke, I like to be sarcastic, and that’s the voice I was used to writing. I was a fan of Douglas Adam’s style too, and always tried to imitate his voice when writing compositions.

A little bit on myself now – I’m a full time Entpreneur running a No Bullshit App Development House called Originally US. I’ve been running this for 6 months now and I’m surviving – I define that being able to have enough sleep everyday and have some spare cash to eat hotdog buns on weekends.

So here I am. Straight to the point, straight from my heart (or brain). No sugar coating. Just what I honestly feel. Read this to provoke some thoughts in your mind or read this for entertainment, I don’t care.

Oh, and I don’t do grammar very well. I consider it a waste of time. I want to get the ideas out of my head as fast as possible (limited by my typing speed, which isn’t typically faster than the mating ritual of snails) – so I went cheap on grammar. Someone in white once said, cheaper, better, faster. When I write, its, faster, faster, and no grammar. I don’t care. You shouldn’t too, you Nazi.

Myths of Being Your Own Boss

  1. Can make alot of money
  2. No need to listen to anyone else
  3. Can take leaves anytime you want
  4. Have alot of freedom

The Unfortunate Truth

  1. We have to work for every penny, and I mean every penny. Sometimes, the ritual of working for money as your own boss feels a little like begging.
  2. If we don’t listen to anyone else, then we simply won’t make money from anyone.
  3. But nobody ever takes leave, because there’s no such thing as “paid leaves”. If you don’t work, you don’t get paid.
  4. I always tell people this – I have lots of freedom but zero time.
