Desis Online Debate If A Salaried Job Is The Perfect Way To Achieve Your Dreams

Social media is filled with posts telling people to quit their 9-5 jobs, follow their passion and start something on their own. Often, the idea of a salaried job is shown in a negative light and ‘hustle culture’ is glorified. Social media shows you the bright side of owning a business – tremendous income, foreign trips, luxury cars, a mansion to live in, etc.

What it doesn’t often show are the multiple risks that go behind building a company, the massive pressure of building something from scratch and a good amount of investment. While social media does highlight the many entrepreneurs who have succeeded, it barely talks about the million others who failed.
