Why Don’t You Just Work for Google?

“Why don’t you just go work for Google?”

I get this question occasionally from very well meaning people. They see that I work in software and the web and assume that I would want to go to the “mecca” of the web – Google. But the truth is, although I love what I do with the web and software, I secretly love running my own business. It’s the uncertainty and the opportunity that draws me.

It’s the ability to make a real difference in a client’s business. It’s the opportunity to work hard knowing that you are sowing seeds that will eventually come back to you – not to some billion dollar organization.

That’s the entrepreneurial bug.
