Selling one’s own time

As an entrepreneur you have to consider how much it should it cost to make use of your time. In a way you are able to plan the use of your own time by setting the price on the hours you work.

I like business…

I like business because it is competitive, because it rewards deeds rather than words.

I like business because it compels earnestness and does not permit me to neglect today’s task while thinking about tomorrow.

I like business because it undertakes to please, not reform; because it is honestly selfish, thereby avoiding hypocrisy and sentimentality.

I like business because it promptly penalizes mistakes, shiftlessness and inefficiency, while rewarding well those who give it the best they have in them.

Lastly, I like business because each day is a fresh adventure.

As an entrepreneur myself, I am very interested in the motivation behind the people who build companies. That is something I will write more about.
