As I think about it, this is sort of a follow up to my Why Do We Trade Time for Money?! post. To let everyone know I got “let go” from my 9-5 job of 3 years on Wednesday 5/11/11. At this company, that shall forever remain nameless, I was the go to person for everything. Everyone knew that RaShaun knows the solutions or can come up with one to any and every issue; I was the “golden boy”. I recently made 2 errors within a month after 3 years of being there and they let me go! It is clear as my coworkers first told me when I got there, they want robots not humans. Well… I am all human and I am subject to make an error or two every now and then.

Now I find myself without a steady income and a family to take care of in the worst recession since the great depression. To be honest with you, I don’t know what I am going to do. But I do know that I am going to do something to get back on my feet as soon as possible! And this leads me to my point; THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS JOB SECURITY!!! THE ONLY JOB SECURITY IS TO RELY ON YOUR OWN WITS AND ABILITIES!!!

START YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! Why should your well being and that of your family’s be in the hands and at the discretion of another person?! When you look at it like that and think about it, you realize how insane it is to get up every morning/night, work 8, 10 + hours, and then go home when someone says you can go. And if time is the most valuable resource, why should someone else be in control of our time, our money, our family’s well being? HELL NO!!! That is ridiculous!

Now that I have no one to tell me when to get up, leave me family and go to work, I feel a sense of freedom! But still I don’t know what the future holds. All I know is that I have all the time to give everything I have to Purple & Chrome. Purple & Chrome is a new young indie t-shirt company. It’s not at the level yet to where it can support my family. But one day I am confident it will! And this is why it’s important for you to start to think about that and start creating your own well being for you and your family.

Find whatever it is you love to do and do it now! There’s no time like the present and you never know what tomorrow is going to bring. So start now and prepare yourself. Take back your time and your well being and put it into your hands where it belongs. Create your own wealth. Don’t rely on anyone to supply it for you or put it in your lap because we all know that won’t happen. The time is now! Start something now so that you don’t have to worry about going to work and being fired one day. One day, you will actually be able to go to work and FIRE YOUR BOSS!!!

I love t-shirts! If you love t-shirts too and want to start your own biz check this post out!
