I am both an employee and an employer. I work a full time job and I own a business. I have always wanted to have a job that I enjoyed so much that I would do it even if I where not being paid. I have also always loved business. Therefore, I have, for most of my adult life had both a job and a business. One thing this does is give me the perspective of both the employee and the employer. As an employer, I have found that finding good employees is a challenge. I came to the conclusion years ago that it is important to pay people what they are worth. I look for people who understand that their purpose as an employee is to enhance the companies bottom line. If you are an employee, are you productive? Do you act with your employers bottom line in mind? Are you compensated as an employee appropriately for your skill level and value to the company? How would you rate yourself as an employee? Do you enjoy your job? If you are self-employed, do you have employees?
