Creed of The Self-Employed
I do not choose to be a common person. It is my right to be uncommon- If I can. I seek opportunity-not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen,humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk;To dream and to build;To fail and succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence;The thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.

Will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect,proud and unafraid;To think and act for myself;To enjoy the benefits of my creations;And to face the world boldly and say,this I have done.

All this is what it means to be self-employed.

Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

I took over the family business in '92 and have other businesses on the side.

I too am in survival mode as ALL businesses are going through a tough time. That's not to say I won't stop looking for ways to succeed though.

Part of being independent is expecting and preparing for hard times while looking for opportunities. Hang in there.

You are living in what has become a dream, and a dream only.

If you didn't already start your own business YEARS ago, when it was only LIKELY you will fail, then you are really delusional if you think the chances of success are high today.

This "government" has done everything it can, to destroy your ability to earn a decent living for yourself. This "government" has become the antithesis of what the founding fathers envisioned for this country.

Our failure to recognize, and properly react to, the enemy within... the DOMESTIC enemies of freedom, is that which has doomed us into ruin, which you will continue to watch unfold, as you spout off about this "land of opportunity".

I've also been so freakin' poor at times I didn't have money for a decent meal. I paid off my student loans in full. Never asked the Government for anything. I don't have a boss nor do I have the security of a steady paycheck. It's very frightening at times.

42 years remodeling homes and businesses and still working. Wouldn't have it any other way. Seldom hire anyone to help. Crawled under an old ranch house yesterday to replace a non-draining pipe, feels good to still do "hard" work. I trade the checks for lawful money at the bank and nobody takes any for taxes. Learn any and all the trades if you want security.
Don't believe anything, only know it.
