I’m an occupational therapist, I love what I do and I truly think I’m making a difference in my patients lives. The problem? I work in a for profit hospital that pretty much bitches their own employees around, takes away benefits, constantly hounded for not meeting productivity requirements, etc. I got an offer to work in home care which I declined because there was too much cons, despite making good salary and benefits. Despite declining, I would pretty much have more autonomy as a home care therapist. This got me thinking, why the fuck should I work for an asshole up top making money off of me? Why can’t I be my own boss, or at the very least, work on my terms while providing the best possible care for my patients?
I’ve come up with an idea to possibly have my own side business, perhaps make my own adaptive equipment to help people with disabilities live their lives. Sell it for cheap. No insurance needs to be involved. How do I start? How do I become my own boss? Any tips on how to have a successful side business?
I’m here because I think literally the thought of being your own boss has crossed the minds of every red pill man. Great men think alike.
