It would be impossible for two different methods of creating a real lifestyle to be any more different than the entrepreneur and the employee. Literally opposite ends of the spectrum, most people drive themselves harder than ever before – literally sacrificing everything they can – to create the real financial freedom of being an entrepreneur and would do almost anything to never have to be an employee effort again.
Very few people are ever lighting up at the prospect of becoming an employee, working for someone else, and allowing them to tap into our leverage to better their lives while we deal with the uncertainty of whether or not we are going to have a job at the end of the week.
Entrepreneurs and employees a look at responsibility completely different
Employees a look at responsibility as to everything that they have been tasked with, keeping to their own small little corner of that business or organization and trying to avoid taking on too terribly much responsibility in case they and up dropping the ball.
Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, embrace all of the aspects of responsibility – and try to take on just as much as they possibly can. Understanding that at their entire business (and their entire lives, really) are a reflection of the level of responsibility that they’ve taken, you’ll find that they actually seek out ways to take responsibility for anything and everything that they can in an effort to control and shape it.
Entrepreneurs embrace profits, employees embrace wages
Both of these lifestyles have to do with making money and getting paid, but again an air approach is dramatically different.
Employees are almost always trying to calculate how much time they need to spend to make whatever money as they are going to pull home from their paychecks – shooting for higher and higher hourly wages as often as they possibly can. This traps them in the cycle of tying money to time when the reality is that they have absolutely nothing to do with one another whatsoever.
Entrepreneurs understand that time and money are two completely separate entities, and time is always – ALWAYS – more valuable than money. They work to create real value that people will pay for time and time again, setting up systems that allow them to make money without having to do any work whatsoever. This lets them create dedicated value systems that produce profits for them even when their sleeping, freeing them to use their time however they want.
Entrepreneurs enjoy complete freedom, employees dream of complete freedom
This is the biggest difference between the two – the level of freedom that someone enjoys.
Employees are saddled with maybe two weeks of vacation time each and every year, and almost always have to fight with their bosses or managers just to get that time off. Entrepreneurs, on the other hand, understand that creating systems and value that separates time and money allows them complete and total freedom to do whatever they want whenever they want – letting them live the kind of life that employees will never ever be able to.
