Live Your Startup Dream Without Quitting Your Day Job with Patrick Mcginnis

I was not raised to think like an owner. You had a 401k or something but there was none of the ownership thing. I didn’t really think about that until I didn’t have ownership. But what I realized when I was freelancing is that you’re on a treadmill. I think so many people miss the boat on that. If people are going to create stability for themselves in the long run, they need to own something.  – Patrick Mcginnis
