Ryan McLean : Slightly Unconventional

No Such Thing As Job Security

I have learned this week the full extent that there is no such thing as job security. I have heard about it, read about it but now I am experiencing it.

My chemist, where I work part time, is cutting shifts…mine included. I lost 6 hours work, as far as I am aware, and that doesn’t sound like much but it is a fair chunk when you only work 14 hours a week.

When people’s shifts get cut the owner benefits. It makes me want to be an owner, not a worker.

You know that saying that says “we are the author of our own destinies”? I want to be someone that lives that creed. I see why so many people search for job security though, it is stressful not knowing how you are going to pay next weeks rent…but I think being the author of our own destiny is more important than job security.

Will I get a new job to pay the rent…yes probably…but am I settling for less than what I want? No.

I have a plan set out, and that is in motion, to achieve financial freedom in the next 2 years. Yes, it sped up. Originally my plan was 5 years, but some changes have happened and opportunities are there for it to be done in 2 years instead of 5.

I admire the entrepreneurs of the world, because they authored their own destiny. I want to do the same.
