or Join a Startup
1. No Spare Time
Even when you’re not at your desk or working directly on growing your company, you‘ll be thinking about your baby, your startup.
2. A miserable existense
A friend of mine described entrepreneurship as a “miserable existence”, an itch that you just have to scratch… but not everyone has the itch.
3. Tax Benefits ?!?
Seriously? $0 Income * x% Tax = $0. That’s not the tax benefits you want. Please don’t start a company for the tax benefits. You’ll end up in ESPN’s NOT Top 10.
4. Kicks your pride straight in the balls
If anything, startups will test your pride, as you’ll be forced to put your name behind half-baked prototypes and dubious marketing efforts.
5. Your Posterity
Truthfully, I had to double-check what this one meant. “But if you own your own business, that’s something you can pass on to the next generation.”
6. You're fired!
Most companies hire slowly and fire slowly — the exact opposite of best practice for startups.”
7. Zero Financial Independence
Being 100% reliant on bootstrapping or raising capital or taking years to become cash flow positive is probably not the financial independence you were looking for
8. Goodbye Nice Things
If you’re the type of person who has an Equinox membership, you’ll probably trade that in for a $9 per month Gold’s Gym membership soon. Sushi Dinners? How about Ramen?
9. Social Life? What Social Life?
I’m glad I get along great with my team. Not that I have much of a choice, because the startup world can be a lonely one.
