I've been a Wantrepreneur for as long as I can remember. The idea that I can run my own business sounds idyllic (or is that idealistic?). However, when the pandemic hit and everyone was jumping ship to other companies or becoming their own boss, it only made me think how much I like the security of having a 9-5, and that at the end of the day, I can call it the end of the day and completely switch off to be with my family.
I have a small business on the side, that I've been slowly building over the past five years. It brings in a small profit but is really more of a hobby project. I know I'll never go all in on it, and it makes me wonder how many other people are also wantrepreneurs, maybe doing something small but knowing they'll never stop being an employee. Is it because of Fear? Lack of time? Lack of energy? Financial instability? Something else?
