Kiss Your Boss Goodbye. It’s Time to Be an Entrepreneur

I recently read a reliable report on the attitude of the American workforce.  To my surprise I learned more than half of all employees are not engaged at work. In other words, most workers are not happy, not satisfied, not productive, not loyal, not inspired and will jump ship if another opportunity arises.  In fact, most are looking to leave now and have polished their resumes.   If this is the case, I would also assume that the managers who supervise these disillusioned employees are probably jerks, or are carrying out the mandates of thoughtless upper management.

If you’re a company leader who doesn’t focus on keeping employees engaged, make note; your days are numbered.  I suggest you change now, with sincere intent to take care of your people, or suffer the disastrous consequences of your own unemployment.

I have more to say on this topic to company management.   Who do you think does all the work in your business?  Who do you think makes your products, sells them, provides support, collects receipts and pays workers? It’s not you, my friend.  Have you forgotten that you hired these people as a resource to help you build a highly profitable business? Have you forgotten they are a precious asset to be valued and protected? How long do you think you can mistreat quality workers until they bolt? In a word, it’s not very long.  Do you get the picture?  Am I making sense? In sum, your financial success, your promotions, your glory, all depend on how well you treat those subordinates who have placed their trust and confidence in you.

Now a word to Les Miserables.  If you are going to quit, for heaven’s sake, don’t go to work for another pathetic firm. Do something wild: Kiss your boss goodbye and launch your own business.  If you have had enough, become your own king.   The money you have made for others now shifts to yourself. Take that idea that’s been in your mind for months and turn it into a profitable company. If you are an engineer, a programmer, a salesman, a teacher, an accountant, a whatever, start today planning your escape from corporate prison.

      Ideas can be small and simple, or large and complex. A passion for a subject may be the genesis of a compelling idea; derived from time enjoying a cherished hobby. A new product may result from a tinkerer who sees an opportunity to transpose an existing concept to a totally new context. Or someone might envision blending two disparate disciplines into an entirely new field of endeavor.
