Wow. Sounds about as much fun as watching paint dry. Maybe a little bit more because a career pays out good money. Hopefully.
What happens if you throw out all the nonsense about what a career should be? What if you mix in passion and a sense of purpose? What if you’re able to feel a sense of belonging and ownership, unlike in any other type of “job” or “company”?
What if the unstated opportunity with any gig was to train you, the “employee”, and then to help you launch your own business, if that was something you wanted? What if the entire goal of the enterprise was to help actualize your potential?
