Cashflow Quadrant: The Self-Employed or Small Business Owner Quadrant
Get to know what the self-employed or small business owner quadrant is all about
The self-employed or small business owner quadrant is usually the people that love doing things by themselves because they want independence and they want to do it all alone. They have a mindset that nobody can do it better but themselves. They usually do not trust anyone but their own selves because they think they can do everything on their own.
You may be your own boss if you head to the self-employed or small business owner quadrant but you are also your own virtual prisoner since you are self-reliant. If you leave your small business or profession behind when you go on a vacation nobody else can take care of it for you because you think you are the only one who can do it best. That is why most people belonging to the self-employed or small business owner quadrant tend to be in their professions and small businesses 24 hours a day seven days a week. As you can see, even if they are indeed independent from being an employee but their life is still like that of an employee because they do not have any freedom and are still not secured. The self-employed or small business owner quadrant is different from the employee quadrant only in the sense that they are their own boss. Other than that, they are just like the employee quadrant who do not have any true financial freedom.
