As my only source of income, it's just more stressful than before as there's nothing to fall back on. I can hardly complain though as overall, I'm earning twice what I did. It's just not as a regular monthly cheque.___________yeah,this is the problem i have and it's hard to convince folk you're doing the right thing ! some folk think working as a gambler for no pay for weeks on end in brainless - however like yourself ,in the big scheme of things i'm much better off at the end of the year each year . I guess its about long term stability,some like the regular pay and security ..if i fail i'll just sell the house and sleep under a bridge ,i'm not proud
Isn't just the same when you have a standard job, if you get fired you don't have nothing to fall back on to, and if need you will must sell the house too, am I right? There is no more security in anything, everything is shaky, the thing is when you work for someone you don't need to think how the firm is going, is the business stable, do they have the money for work and paychecks, and so on, you just come every day on the same place, doing same work, from 8 till 5, go home and then doing your work withouth thinking about your job, it is more casual for you, but in this betfair job you are always familiar with your financial situation, it is only your decision what move to make, only your responsibility will you win or lose, everything is on your back and you live with this job 24/7 and go to sleep with, and I think most people is afraid of that, that's why they say entrepreneurship is not for everybody, only for those who can take responsibility for themselves and other, have guts to risk and believe in self. and the other thing is that your standard job maybe has become a old habit that is hard to get rid of and try something new because that is your secure territory that you only knew, and going on unfimiliar territory is probably scary because you don't know what to expect, and the thing that society don't accept it as normal hampers you, because you have taught from the childhood that working from 8-5 is only thing that is right and listening what others tell you, nothing else
