What’s it REALLY like working for yourself vs. working for someone else? It’s time you finally see all the nitty-gritty behind-the-scenes stuff most folks don’t want to talk about when it comes to being an entrepreneur.In this podcast, I dive into the myths of working for yourself as well as the perks of working for someone else. I made this podcast to correct the typical oversimplification we see in the online business world of “entrepreneurship is GOOD and jobs are BAD.”As with anything, there are perks and downsides to both, but since we spend most of our time hearing the perks of entrepreneurship and the bad parts of employment – I’m flipping the script and showcasing a more realistic view.If you want access to the research behind the episode, head over to the blog: The truth about working for yourself vs. working for someone else.Mentioned on the podcast:Duped: The Darkside of Online BusinessWantrepreneur: Professor Explains the Fake Entrepreneur IndustryAnd get access to my free private podcast on “What Do I Really Want?” where I teach you my favorite, super simple exercise for figuring out what you really want ASAP!

Let me guess: You’re one of those people who’s NEVER happy with any job you’ve ever had (and you’ve probably had a lot of them). You’re always on the search for something better, but every time you start a new job you might be happy for a few months, and then you slowly realize you still aren’t very happy. And you begin to always be asking yourself the question, “Why am I never happy with any job I get?!”I just want to say: I get it. I’ve been on that job treadmill before too. I’ve had really high hopes that “maybe THIS job will be the one…” only to have my hopes smashed to bits when I realize, “Nope, this isn’t quite it…” and feeling a bit hopeless and lost. And it was only after learning more about why we humans struggle so much to be happy PERIOD that I realized there was nothing actually wrong with me. And even more importantly: there (usually) wasn’t anything actually wrong with the jobs either. The call was coming from inside the house, and I was actually more responsible for being unhappy with my jobs than the actual jobs themselves.And through reflection and learning more about the psychology of happiness and contentment -- and all of my years studying and practicing career development -- I’ve found that there’s usually six surprising reasons why you’re never happy with your job.Read the blog here for more resources!
