It always fascinates me when I meet people who constantly complain about their job. The hours, the clients, the co-workers, the rules. I wonder why these folks are such masochists, and what stops them from doing something more fulfilling. For many, professional happiness comes from a paycheck. For some, it comes from the satisfaction of meeting quarterly goals and adding milestones to their resume. Still others are driven by an idea that just won’t subside. If you let it marinate long enough, it evolves, it develops, it transforms. Eventually, it explodes. And when that happens, an insatiable entrepreneurial spark ignites. And that’s when the real magic happens. If you’re reading this from a dreary cubicle surrounded by co-workers you can’t stand, or if you’re fed up with a boss that doesn’t appreciate your contributions, consider the possibilities if you were to give all that grief up to pursue whatever professional path excites you. Becoming an entrepreneur is risky. But it’s better than always wondering what could have been.
