Dear Readers,

Thank you for coming here!

If your business makes money, are you really working for yourself?

This seemingly obvious question may have a different answer, if we take a different perspective — whether we are enjoying the trend, getting paid for our work, or making real profits.

Let’s say we discover a new demand and we are the pioneer to enter this market and build it up.

We make good money. We are really enjoying the benefits of the trend because we are the first.

More players will enter into competition naturally. And making money will be harder.

So maybe after a few years, our revenue can barely cover our expenses.

At this point, we are basically getting paid for our work.

We are working for the society to satisfy a certain demand and the society pays us “salary” for it.
