I went back to visit my parents last weekend and the asked about my work and how is the pay. Considering I have rejected the chances to get into a well-paid company to pursue my dreams, they are curious how much I am earning.

At first, it’s not about the money. It’s the passion.

Now, it is different. For my career advancement, perhaps I am recalculating my value.

What if you are:

  • Considered an asset by other people to any organizations
  • Valued for the vision, enthusiasm and entreprenurship spirit
  • Achieved straight A’s results and graduated from abroad
  • Have the experience working with clients from all over the world

Would you:

  1. Stay a bit longer to gain more experience on learning how to run a startup
  2. Work elsewhere to gain new experience, challenges besides increment
  3. Sign the resignation letter and start on new ventures

 

One thought on “Is it the money?”

  1. The best way to learn how to run a startup is — run a startup.But you gotta do what you love, man. Don’t plan too much ahead, just do what you love and like what Steve Jobs said: the dot will connect looking backwards.That being said, it’s always good to have a paying gig (whether it’s freelance/full-time job) — as long as it’s "non-soul-sucking".
