Here’s a helpful way to reframe working for someone else.
Where else can you get hands-on experience in an industry?
Where you are immersed in their operations, procedures, and policies?
Where you are privy to their valuable and hard-worked-for IP?
Where you gain insight and knowledge from people with years of relevant trade/industry experience?
Without paying a cent.
And at the end of the week…
they pay you!
If you struggle to see the value of where you are right now, remember that working for someone else can be (it’s your choice) part of the significant training ground your future self will thank you for.
It just takes appreciating where you are now and seeing all the opportunities there are to learn. For free!
This is another great insight from my D.A.D. and in my not-so-unbiased opinion, it’s gold!
