A serial entrepreneur and friend of mine asked me last night how I was enjoying my 9-5. This guy has more projects than Michael Jackson had #1 songs. He loves what he does and he makes a lot of money.
He always seems miffed when I say I genuinely love my 9 to 5 gig. I explain that it has nothing to do with security, benefits, routine, or structure, but it’s always hard to articulate why it really is about the mission.
I have the entrepreneurial spirit, which is why I’ll always have a side hustle, but I hope that you’ll watch this video and get a better sense of why I love my day job.
These are the people I get to meet. These are the stories I get to share. And then hopefully, as a result, someone finds us when they (or a loved one) needs us most and they give our doctors a chance to save their life.
Knowing that I may have had even the tiniest sliver of a contribution in that process ensures that I won’t be leaving my 9-5 anytime soon.
