I am not sure why but I have been hit up with a ton of emails lately asking for career and business advice. I guess something is stirring up the natural desire for liberty at a higher level and many are seeing their employment for what it is, indentured servitude.
Jobs are not inherently bad things. I had many jobs over the years. Some people don’t want to be entrepreneurs they just want a better career and a better place to work.
I find it hard to advise people on this stuff. Yes I spent a lot of years employee but I have been an entrepreneur for most of my life as well. Even when I had a j-o-b I still had some sort of a side business. I started my first real company in 1998, it is often hard after all those years to advise on both the entrepreneur and employee side of the fence but I will do my best to do so today.
For anyone that wonders if this is a survival topic, I will just say this. Most preppers get into survivalism because of a fear that something could go wrong and cost them their incomes, their savings, their homes and their happiness if they are unprepared.
Great but if you are miserable now, how happy do you really think you’ll be eating MREs in the apocalypse? Or, will it matter that only you lost your home due to a lost job and everyone else still has theirs? Does it make sense to worry about the collapse of a dollar when you barely have any dollars?

Bob Wells Plant of the Week
Lapins Cherry – Highly adaptable zone 5 to zone 9. – This cherry is one of the few truly self-fertile options, making it ideal for small back yard growers with limited space. Additionally it only requires 400-500 chilling hours. It is also one of the few cherry trees that can be planted in full sun, even in zone 9 and handle the extreme summer heat in the south, yet cold hardy enough to handle the extreme cold in zone 5. Order this Plant from Bob Wells
