Eight Hour Work Week Quote...
“Show me a man who owns a business and works an eight hour day, and I’ll show you a failure.” -ff

As others have stated, to be successful and own a business, in my opinion, one has to live it, not clock in and out (many times to the detriment of your family life). If you don't understand that, you have always had a boss while you have worked or someone older than you that you are likely related to started the company you're now in charge of, IMO of course.

You are absolutely correct MM, only way family works in business, is to include family in the business. Otherwise, someone suffers.

@5GIRLS, this is where most owners get it wrong, IMO. Where most want to pass it on to their entitled children, that is the exact moment they should make sure their kids' debt is taken care of but pass their business on to the person they know has their "work code" and street smarts, regardless if they are related to them or not, that they had.

It's a system to work the system that is already in place. If your career is not also a hobby, then it's pretty much slavery in a very subtle way. People have to do what they need to do to get by, and survive, but those people are the people who struggle against the system in place.

The best example of this is the book "Into the Wild".

Nothing is better having the free will to live out your choices.

Choice is free will, and making the best of those choices, is a life in paradise

I just sayin that the business should be worked by the family, as a family operation. Then the folks would know who had it in em to carry on.

Amen to that! Speaking from experience.

Forrest is correct, however "find a job you love, and never work again" enables you to "work" long hours.
