    Funny how the bosses always say "hey we're under paid to ya know". A couple of weeks ago, I heard a boss at my job talk about how underpaid he was, and as he was saying it, he was getting into the back of a car to be shuttled to the airport where his private jet awaited him to take him to Boston for the weekend. A special trip just to attend a Celtics game. If that is underpaid, I'd love to see overpaid!

    My generous employer gives us 104 vacation days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

    And for most companies it is the largest expense. Every two weeks "$X" flies out the door. And I'm not bad mouthing it as employees (mostly) are worth it, I've just experienced being on the owners end of a services oriented (read employee heavy) start up. Cash burn like that leads to ulcers, heart problems, and hair loss.

    I completely agree. That's why I've learned it's not personal. It's business. The employer's I've worked for got into business to make more money than they would as an employee for someone else. They got into business to be independent and have more control over their career, time etc.

    That is why I say that a goal of most employers isn't to ensure *you* (as an employee) make as much money as you can as an accountant, auditor, IT tech, marketing manager, etc. That is up to *you*, the employee. There is an inherent incentive for the employer to walk that fine line of trying to pay as little as he can in salaries and wages and still get quality work and keep employees. It is a constant tug of war between the two parties.

    A bit of advice you sleep with the boss that being YOU! Having started and running 3 businesses one very much a loser. It will a 24-7 deal your blood pressure will go up and you will wake up nights wondering what I did wrong or how can I fix or improve my business.

    I don't know your industry but you will only be as good as those employees you hire. I made mistakes but got lucky see avatar. I'm sure you are excellent at your job and your partner as too but you will need someone to pre screen potentials employees, be human resources and manage your office if you wish to grow. When times are good put away because times in every industry will turn.

    Not to sound to negative owning a business is great but it comes with a lot of work.
    Why did Tennessee choose orange as their team color? You can wear it to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and picking up trash along the highways the rest of the week.

    The avatar is my former assistant who I think of as my adopted daugther. She is smart, funny, likeable and a Acct & Finance grad of Fullerton and given the right guidance would light the world on fire. Just don't tell her I said that.

    Maybe my knowledge of 70's music shouldn't be a point of pride? Monday I stayed home sick. My wife is a stay at home mom. When she got back from taking the kids to school I merely commented, "skyrockets in flight..." She was not amused.
