This one is a quote from me, i searched online and didn’t find anything similar, so decided to post it and explain my thinking.
A lot of people get in business and become slaves to the business. For example an employee have an idea or a dream, so he resigns from his job to pursue the dream full time. Business does not usually take off immediately, and often it does stagnate. So our new entrepreneur starts spending 15h of work per day, this then become the new normal. This situation is not really an imaginary scenario, it is the reality for many new and not so new entrepreneurs. Even seasoned entrepreneurs lose sight of the goal.
You should be an entrepreneur, to live like a king not work like a slave– Abdallah Alaili
The goal of becoming an entrepreneur, should be taking back your time and having a financial and work/leisure freedom. Bringing a project to life and making positive change are also good, but on the individual level it should be financial and time freedom.
You should be an entrepreneur : or the motivation to become an entrepreneur is obviously success. But working like a slave, might be a too high cost for the success you will achieve, especially that this success is not lived on daily basis (living like a king).
