What are the benefits of not having a job?

Why am I so against jobs? Obviously having more income streams is not a worthy excuse for risking going broke and being homeless.

I’ve read in his post about jobs, that it is also about better experience, etc…

But I haven’t completely understood it.

Could you give me your point of view of why not having a job is worth the risk of going broke?

Hi All,

If you don’t work, things will get worse for you.

There’s nothing wrong with having a job but there’s certainly something wrong with having a job that doesn’t keep keep you excited, happy and makes you fulfilled.

It is not so much about having a job per say as it is not doing what you are passionate about and living a life that actually contributes to the betterment of you and society. I don’t think Steve or anyone who suggests investing in You Inc, is saying don’t have a job. I think the broader picture is find ways to generate income for yourself that can ultimately provide your greater freedom to experience life and grow as a person and in turn help others do the same. I am a believer that a 9-5 office job is not the way to go and I have made decisions in my life to facilitate that change. It takes time, personal development and growth and a commitment to your success. No one wants someone who can contribute to society to not have a job and become a drag on the society. What people here are suggesting is merely beginning to find alternative income streams that make your typical 9-5 job not the only option.

Getting a regular job is probably the best option for most of us. We can’t all run our own business.

The important thing is to understand what a job is. By getting a job, you’re basically subordinating yourself to higher authorities within a system. Make sure you evaluate how these hierarchical structures could affect your personal freedom, and subsequently your perception of yourself.

the only benefits i understand is that you’re free.

the downsides that i understand are, you’re broke.

the thing you need to consider is food.

if you can deal with the food issue, the rest will come to place.

i am a skeptic when it comes not to having a job/business/etc. because if you’re not responsible with yourself how can you be responsible with respect to society in general?

How many hours you work is quite a separate question from whether you work for a boss or run your own business.

You could jolly well work very long hours doing your own thing.

Or you could work very short hours, as an employee.
