You might come across people who long to quit their 9-5 jobs and pursue their startup ideas. There is nothing wrong with that. But there are also people who are perfectly content in their 9-5 jobs and wouldn’t want it any other way. That’s okay too. To each his own.
Which is why when one entrepreneur made a shady remark about 9-5 jobs on Twitter, many people weren’t pleased. He said that if a person with a startup idea cannot explain it within one sentence, then he/she should go back to doing their 9-5 jobs.
If you can't explain your startup idea in a single sentence, then you should continue doing 9 to 5.

And this made many people question, what is wrong with 9-5 jobs after all? Some said that we shouldn’t dislike the idea of 9-5 jobs because, for many professionals, it works. Here’s how they reacted:
What’s wrong with a 9 to 5? 🤔I think we as a society need to stop talking down on hard-working people who have a 9 to 5 to support their families.

It’s not necessary and this thought is extremely overrated. A founder should have clarity and so does every 9-6 employee to be successful.

Ah yes, right. Elon should’ve stayed in a 9-5 job.

Some day I will want to understand why we have so much disdain for regular job goers. If all becomes start up founders who in God's name will work in them ?! https://t.co/jneQqxvOzt

I think because it is so difficult to get a regular 9 to 5 job.

Hahaha. Imagine the scenario. Everyone has a startup but no one is an employer 🤦🏻♂️🙄

If you can’t explain your startup idea in a single sentence, then you should explain it in more than one sentence 🙂 https://t.co/65pboe1vNF

Lmao, startup hustlers really be thinking they are their own boss when they have more stakeholders to answer to than any '9 to 5 loser' would. https://t.co/S1JnSHhNqG

There's nothing bad in doing 9-5.
Do what you love.
Ideas have no value.
Execution is the key. https://t.co/A0Ult3UMzU
