Obviously, I want everyone to be successful in their business: to get clients, make those clients happy, and make enough money to live well.
That said, one thing I’ve always pointed out to people is that learning about business and how to run one makes you an even better, more attractive candidate should you ever want or need to return to the workforce.
That’s because you learn how to think and see things more entrepreneurially.
You gain an inside understanding of how things work in business that other employees don’t necessarily have.
You can appreciate why and how things are done certain ways in business, and can make even more valuable contributions from that perspective.
Your venture into business is NEVER a waste, no matter which way the road leads you.
