Like the Paul Simon song, there are probably at least fifty ways to be your own boss, but I only have twenty minutes this coming thursday at the 99% Conference and so I am going to talk about ten of them.
The super high growth startup that lands a ton of venture capital and heads for a big exit is the iconic entrepreneurial success story but it represents a tiny fraction of all entrepreneurial endeavors and I think it gets in the way of more people starting their own businesses. They think “well I can’t do that” so they don’t do anything. And that’s wrong.
So I am going to talk about ten ways you can be your own boss and hope to deliver the message that there is a way that most everyone can do it.
Here are my visuals in draft form. As always, comments and suggestions are very welcome.
