Why do you own your own firm?
Some people do it because they’re horrible employees. They know it, and their former bosses knew it.
My brother’s like that. He’s kind of the worst employee. He’ll start a new job and love it, but after awhile, he can’t handle the chronic, systemic problems that almost every employer¹ struggles with. But instead of bringing those things up in constructive ways, he bottles up his frustration until one day he busts into his boss’ office, yells, “This place is bullshit!” and flips over a desk. Then the next day, he’ll come back to work, poke his head into his boss’ office and ask, “So I don’t work here anymore, right?”
