Rich Dad's Before You Quit Your Job
What Makes Entrepreneurs Different? One of the most frightening days of my life was the day I quit my job and officially became an entrepreneur. On that day I knew there were no more steady paychecks, no more health insurance or retirement plan. No more days off for being sick or paid vacations. On that day, my income went to zero. The terror of not having a steady paycheck was one of the most frightening experiences I had ever experienced.
Worst of all, I did not know how long it would be before I would have another steady paycheck . . . it might be years. The moment I quit my job I knew the real reason why many employees do not become entrepreneurs. It is fear of not having any money . . . no guaranteed income . . . no steady paycheck. Very few people can operate for long periods of time without money. Entrepreneurs are different, and one of those differences is the ability to operate sanely and intelligently without money.
