Being an Employee or Employer??

Dr. Anshul Mishra Never Let The “What If" get in the way of what you do! “I think therefore I am”. I’m on my journey.


Ask yourself, do you wish to be an employee or employer?

Most of you would answer that in a beat but are we doing something to be our own Bosses?

With the advent of the lockdowns, I stumbled upon a simple yet powerful notion, that I always wanted to work with the best in the field rather than being the best in the field.

“What can you do for me to make me the best in the field?”
Can you provide me with a wage for my knowledge and experience?
If your answer is yes, then this is what you get…
And if not, then go ahead and run your business as an employer rather than an employee.

Being accountable for all that offers to many individuals; a consistent compensation and not being liable for each choice claims to other people. There’s no single widespread right answer; there’s nothing left but to gauge the alternatives and choose for yourself. I came to Canada in search of greener pastures and as a part-time worker shifting from job to job for the sake of the bills has made me wound up in my own cocoon, which has inhibited my senses and capabilities. I think that is a major factor that is sidelining the ultimate aim and increases the distraction. Other factors that weigh it down are:
