Instead of buying into the normal, “Escape the 9-5” propaganda I am proud to present you with a piece of work that preaches something new. It is my opinion that you need a job or else you are a loser.

I was sitting down at my favorite cafe when I overheard an “aspiring entrepreneur” telling his associate about how he hated his current job. The man went on to say that he wanted to not have a job and instead do his own thing.

He did as most people do and blamed his job for killing his dream. His associate agreed with him and seemed to be having the same problem.

They went on to talk about how if it weren’t for their job that they would already have a profitable business and be living the dream.

The associate spoke about how he lacked the money to be able to pay his bills while also funding a house cleaning venture in which he saw an opportunity.

It was not my place to give my opinion to them as they did not ask nor was it my life. But since this is my site and you have come here to listen to what I have to say let me speak my opinion while also enlightening you.

First off let me start by saying these two men are part of the problem we face in our country and the world for that matter. These young men are a perfect example of the have-nots who blame everyone else for their lack of success while not wanting to put in the required work to get what they desire.

You see it is not their job nor their current circumstances that are preventing them from starting the businesses that they spoke of, but instead, it is much simpler.

The main problem that they have is themselves. They are the ones that are holding themselves back by being lazy, victim-minded, and not having a Solution Mindset.

Our current society expects to be given everything and feels entitled to the best. We have a society of takers that do not want to earn what they get.

Every time you turn on the TV or do a Google search you see some person selling a dream to you. So many people out there whether losing 10 lbs or making money just want a magic pill that will give them their hearts wildest desire.

To change the world we will need to set a new standard. 

You will need to….

I propose a new idea that will be met with criticism from the Dream Sellers, “Alpha’s”, and Cockroaches.

You need a job or else you are a loser. Yes, I really believe that. If you don’t have a job then you are probably leeching off of the system or a 30-year-old that sits around smoking weed all day.

Now don’t get me wrong I do believe there are exceptions to not having a job.

Reasons to not have a job:

  • Disabled- There are people out there who have been wounded in wars, gotten sick/crippled, or have special needs. These people do not need jobs and should be taken care of.
  • Rich- If you are rich you do not need a job. More than likely you have worked for decades building your wealth and have now received your piece of the pie. You have earned your wealth and deserve to spend the rest of your days in comfort and pleasure.
  • Retired- You spent 20-40 years of your life working a day job and have now saved up enough money to retire. You will get to spend the remainder of your life (If you invested and saved good enough) doing as you please. You might not be able to live luxuriously but you will have comfort. I will not stand here and tell you that working a day job is the best decision as it is not, but it is better than being a loser.

But if I have a job then that means I work for another man and will never achieve financial freedom right?

In most cases of you working for another man, you will never achieve financial freedom.

You will go in day after day grinding away making the owner of that company rich.

I have seen people who literally stress themselves out to the point of having health problems all for a job. They stress over the following:

  • Will I be able to spend time with my family this Christmas?
  • Getting to work on time.
  • Making the company enough money.
  • Dressing in the authorized uniform.
  • Completing tasks by a certain time.
  • Impressing their manager. (Fun fact: Managers are just underpaid employees. Your manager has to do what you do, more paperwork, and manage others all for just a little more money.)

When I say you are a loser unless you have a job I do not mean just working for someone else. Isn’t it a job even if you work for yourself?

Yes, it is actually.

So many people get caught up in not ever having to worry about a job again that they get themselves trapped into never leaving their wage-slave position or by getting lazy and living off of the government.

Everyone needs a job until they don’t have to worry about money again. At which point you can either hire others to manage the businesses for you or retire to an exotic beach.

Work for yourself

Stop looking for ways to get out of your job and instead focus on being able to work for yourself.

Working for yourself is very doable. It is so simple that it entertains me how hard we make it for ourselves.

We get so caught up in how society has brought us up and allow ourselves to conform that we never allow our true selves to come out.

I want you to look in the mirror right now and ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Am I happy with my job right now?
  2. How can I become happy there or work for myself?
  3. What skills or interests do I have that I can monetize?
  4. Is there a demand for what I can do?

The most important question is-

What is stopping you?

It is up to you to decide how your life will be. You have the potential to be that homeless guy under the bridge or that wealthy man going down the road in his Ferrari.

You see friend life is much simpler than other people would like you to believe.

At the end of the day you only need to make sure that you are happy and then also know that you realistically don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to do.

Do you think someone like Lil Wayne or, Chris from Good Looking Loser would let some person stop them from getting what they want?

Of course not.

Anyone who is great doesn’t play by the rules. They don’t let their emotions get in the way of making money.

Let’s say that you see an opportunity in selling a state of the art weight-loss product to overweight women.

You might not like the idea of exploiting those women’s desperation to lose weight, but if there is a need then you best believe there is money in it.

An average person (Most Likely a Loser) will let that emotion get in their way and decide to back off of that opportunity. Now the average person has missed out on possibly thousands of dollars.

Enjoy working for someone else for the remainder of your days.

On the other hand….

A hustler see’s the opportunity and monetizes that demand. He might set up a website that allows him to generate income for each unit sold.

The hustler might also create a simple Sales Page with an eBook that upsells the weight-loss product.

How can I escape working for another man and work for myself?


Decide that you want to work for yourself and then supply a demand. Become a Producer rather than a Consumer.

It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you are a Producer.

The reason so many people can’t work for themselves is that they put way too much thought into the how instead of taking action. 

What held me back for years was I would think about the following “important” things:

  • How can I make money online?
  • What is the best way to make money online?
  • What should I do to develop the right mindset?
  • What if I fail?
  • What if I lose my money?

Those are all good questions, but they will not put money into your bank account. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon a secret which all of the people at the top understand that I was able to start seeing success.

It is a secret that is so obvious that if you knew it you would laugh. 

Since you are reading this article I will assume that you already know the secret but here it is….

Get Started

It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest business idea the world has ever seen unless you get started nothing will happen. That idea will be worthless.

You can continue to sit there and run through all of your “important” questions or you can get started.

Your choice.

In my case, I wanted to work for myself. I started an online and offline venture. Now I’m job free.

Shouldn’t I plan and get everything in order?

Yes and No

You should have a plan in place, but the most important part is that you get started instead of just staying in the planning stage. 

I will create a Get Started To-do list for you that you can use when making a decision. You can change the steps depending on what it is that you are trying to do. 

Here it is:

  1. Get idea
  2. Put the idea on paper 
  3. Decide what your first steps are 
  4. Get started
  5. Keep moving forward

I will use C&C as an example of how you can use the Get Started To-do list to achieve whatever you want.

You can use this list for everything from starting a business to getting a girl.

How I used the Get Started To-do List to create a great blog?

In the beginning, I knew I wanted to share my ideas with those who would listen. I knew that I could write pretty well and I also knew how to create a website.

I could have sat around for days thinking about the best way to get my ideas out there. I could have Googled how to build a large following. 

But I decided to instead Get Started and adapt as I went along.

Here is how I did it:

Get idea-

I had the idea that I wanted to be able to share my message with all of those who would listen.

Put the idea on paper-

I then wrote down the idea and exactly what I wanted from it.

Decide what your first steps are-

I knew I would need a medium that would be appealing to people, but that would also allow me to only speak to a certain group of people.

I wanted my medium to be online as that is where most people spend their time. 

I decided that I would create a blog. 

Get Started- 

Once my site was ready to go I began writing and designing my blog. 

Keep moving forward-

At first, my article’s sucked. I wouldn’t receive a single comment or subscriber. 

Most would quit after a few months, but not me. 

Instead, I made my blog’s design appealing and unique. I continued writing and developed my own style of writing. I worked on my craft day after day. 

Now I have a decent amount of subscribers and have people comment on my article’s.

Guess what?

I am going to continue working on my craft.

Even when I have 20k subscribers I will still be working on my craft.

If it weren’t for me Getting Started you wouldn’t be reading this article. I would probably still be trying to figure out what I wanted to do. 

You’re Hired!

In conclusion, I want you to know that there are people like you out there.

People who want more out of life than working a dead-end job, getting married, and then dying after a life of settling for less than you want. 

I can be that brother you never had or a mentor. Whatever makes you feel good just know that I believe in you. 

Remember that you will always need a job if you desire to have money. The difference is that you can either work for yourself or for someone else. 

The choice is as usual up to You.

Your friend,

Dylan Madden

  1. Sergie,
    Very good and in-depth article. Just because you are working a job does not mean you are a loser at all. It just means at least you’re actively (hopefully) working towards something better. I definitely agree though, working for someone else does make them that much more money. We have all witnessed it before.

    You’re right, in the end, a business of your own and a regular job are both jobs. Some jobs can be rewarding but have a ceiling and only so far you can go. Both require hard work if you want to get anywhere. I agree with what you and Conner said about just working on something until you can quit if you so choose. Great content!

  2. One of your best articles Sergie. It took me a long time to realise that I was holding myself back by avoiding having a good job. Once I got one, things became easier for me. Everything is easier with a consistent pay check.

    And here’s the thing, I am almost pathological when it comes to not working a job. I don’t fit in with most people and I suck at taking orders. But sucking it up has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.

    • Thank you Andrew. Sometimes we have to take orders while we build our empire. But the good thing is that if you are consistent one day you will be the one giving orders.

  3. Great post, Sergie. Gotta agree with you.

    Gives me a laugh when I read “Quit your job and become an online entrepreneur”. Biggest POS I’ve ever heard. My advice is similar to yours: keep your job and create a side-hustle until you can earn more (every month) from your side-hustle. Only then may you quit.

    Hope you do get some recognition for this article, a few fools affiliated with the redpill and mansohpere movement need to see this ASAP.

    People are too caught up in the end game. They want to be millionaires, to retire at 30 and to live on a beach…just like their inspiration has done.

    BUT, they don’t wanna put the work in to get there!

    Sad to see, but sadly it’s very common.

    Keep it up, nice to see two posts in two days.

    • Thank you for your great comment Conner. I laugh when I see articles who tell people to quit their job and become an online entrepreneur as well. Hopefully this article and several of the posts I’ve seen on your blog will start to open people’s eyes.

      It is time to bring about change.

  4. Very true. Especially with the advent of the internet, there’s no reason a man can’t develop a skill, start freelancing and making decent coin.
