But first a quick story…
Henry Ford was a pretty legendary entrepreneur. Made millions and millions of dollars building cars back in the early 1900s. (Adjusted for inflation, that’s about a “zillion” dollars today. – OK, I didn’t actually do the math.)
But at the same time you could’ve done pretty well just working for Henry your whole life.
Back in the “good old days”, if you had any entrepreneurial skills, it was considered a bonus.
Today things are different. The economy is less certain. The prospects for long-term employment is less certain. Your earning potential is less certain. Everything is less certain!
They call it the “New Normal”.
