So many entrepreneurs see “starting a company” as a way to put more money in their own personal pocket.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret: the moment you start building a successful, profitable business, and the moment you start hiring (a lot), and your payroll increases, and your overhead goes up, and expenses start mounting, all of a sudden taking money out of the company sounds like the dumbest thing you could possibly do.
There’s no point. Leave it in the company. Grow.
Grow your team. Grow the value of the company you own. Acquire competitors. Enter new verticals.
Build an empire.
