Kill It, Drag It Home and Eat It
I once worked for a man named Randall Robertson. One day, we talked about how we could contribute years of blood, sweat and tears at a company and get nothing out of it but a pay check. Having been told all my young life that a pay check was a good thing, I questioned what he meant. His response: "Well, you should be able to eat what you kill."
A light went off in my head, and it's burned brightly ever since. I worked for Randall 3 months after that, and I took his comment to heart. Within two years, I had started my own business. Today, it thrives in large part because of the wisdom Randall shared with me.
No matter how you earn a living, if you make it happen, you should share in the spoils. Fundamental fairness demands that your reward be commensurate with your efforts and the results attributable to them. You should be able to eat what you kill, and nowhere are the chances of that better than if you own your own business.
Do you eat what you kill? Isn't it satisfying? Like not only are you working, but working for a cause that transcends a pay check? How does eating what you kill make you feel? Inspire us with your story!
