Getting a job sucks – creating one inspires!

I guess you know enough about me to know that I’ve never worked for anyone else. Call me selfish, but for me, I always had to be in charge of my own destiny. But it’s really not me that’s important – it’s what I can do for others that really matters to me.

Surely, if that were to happen, we’d ultimately all be better off!
