What is better, to be a boss or employee?
A lot of you will think being a boss is better, but some will think being an employee is the best way to go.
I must say, they both have their pros and cons. And to be completely honest with you, it comes down to the person in general.
I will get into the specifics of this topic inside this article, because at the end you will know which one IS right for you.
I know what I like, but everyone is different and you know yourself better than anyone else. So lets get started!
What Makes Them Different?
A boss and an employee has different responsibilities.
A boss has very important responsibilities, and more of them in general, while employees responsibilities aren’t THAT important, and there aren’t as many either.
Your job as an employee is to show up to work on time and do your job
However, a boss has to make sure employees turn up to work, to organize where everyone is going to be working and to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently.
Basically, it is much harder to be a boss than an employee and most of the time more stressful.
Because a boss has more important responsibilities, they make more money than employees.
But is the extra stress from being a boss worth the extra mula?
That’s the all-important question you need to ask yourself before applying for such positions.
An employee can earn a good amount of money, however, their monthly earnings don’t even come close to what bosses are earning.
I don’t care what anyone says, if a boss isn’t making a large amount of money they might as well become employees themselves.
That is why it baffles me when bosses say they don’t make enough money.
It’s simple, if they weren’t making enough they would be closed down. Most of the time they are lying.
Different Paths In Life
Each and every one of us are on our own paths.
Bosses are on their own paths, coworkers are on their own, and you are on your own path also.
A boss may enjoy his lifestyle but you may want something different in life.
You’re probably an aspiring boss yourself but finding it difficult to get there, or maybe you want to quit your job to do something you love.
Bottom line, everyone is different and we are all chasing something in life. You might be comfortable with being an employee, and that is completely fine. If you are happy I have no problems with that.
The problem I have is when people are unhappy in their job but don’t do anything about it.
Which One Are You?
Leader Or Follower
Leaders and followers are two different things.
There’s nothing wrong with being a follower, it just means being an employee is better for you.
But if you like to take charge, to be a leader that can easily tell people off and give warnings, to organize everyone in the company and love every moment of it, then being a boss is for you.
However, followers will not enjoy being a boss. They will hate turning up to work because they aren’t the “type” of person that’s required.
If you’re a follower but don’t like being told what to do from a boss, being an entrepreneur might be your only other option.
Boss Or Employee
A boss takes on more responsibilities. His job is to organize and operate a business, a business full of employees.
A boss has to know the ins and outs to the company. He can’t become a boss without knowing anything about the company.
That’s why people have to climb the corporate ladder, because everyone starts from the bottom and goes up the ranks as they learn more about the industry.
However, employees have a more “laid-back” approach. An employee doesn’t have to organize anyone. They just need to worry about their own job and how effectively they are doing it.
As a rule of thumb: Bosses make sure everyone does their job correctly so the company can profit – Employees try to get their job done quickly and efficiently.
Don’t Want To Be Neither?
If you are anything like me, even just a tiny bit, there’s a good chance you don’t want to be ANY of these.
To be honest, I think bosses care more about themselves. They think they own everyone in the business.
One boss told me if it wasn’t for him I would still be on the benefit (receiving money from the government instead of working).
He was a control freak. He always liked to be in charge.
I knew I could do better than been controlled to make somebody else richer, to make his dreams come true and not mine.
So what did I do?
I sure as hell didn’t sit in the same job for years complaining about how much I hated my life and the job I was in.
No, I did something about it.
I decided to become an entrepreneur myself, to be my OWN boss, not to boss other people around.
I am not a boss, nor an employee. I take control of my own life and live it how I want to!
I do not answer to anyone (apart from my other half :P) and have complete freedom with all the money I need + more.
I have an online business my friend. I have a website that I created myself, and now I make commissions on a daily basis.
I have never been happier and only recommend it for you too.
It is free to join so you don’t have to pay anything just yet. Just test the waters and see how you go. You might surprise yourself more than you think!
