This reminds of one of the greatest difference on the spectrum where entrepreneurship is at one end, employment the other.

Time and time again, friends would ask me why I do what I do. “Why do you do that? You hardly make any money with that!”

“Why write? You make so little!”

Or when I ask them for help, “Do that work and not get paid?! No way! That’s crazy!”

Of course it’s crazy.

Of course it’s weird.

Of course it’s abnormal.

But that’s why it’s called being an entrepreneur. Being one is crazy, weird and not normal at all.

That’s why millionaires are crazy, weird and also not normal.

If you want the guarantee of money or results from doing a little bit of work, get a job.
