Which is why the poor bloke seems to be sitting down at the entrance to his shop, wondering what the hell he is to do with his time.
I also don't suppose he does too much by way of calculating his working capital costs. Like most shopkeepers, he will look at his profit and loss, and not so much as how many times he rolls over his money.
I've had this debate with myself many times, about whether or not I should stay a good career person all my life, or whether or not I should start something of my own!
Being in a job used to give a person a lot of security. The regular monthly paycheck, with the promise of a steady, if unexciting, life. It also gave the promise of a life of boredom after retirement. And, a down grading of lifestyle, ego etc.
One day you are important. The next day, not.
And, as we all know, times have changed. Corporate life does not offer security anymore. More money, perks. More pressure. Less security and peace of mind.
Pretty much the same as business. Except, business does give you the promise of non-retirement, if you are successful.
The question is, can God help you sell? I doubt it.
