Best Places to Work

It is that time of year, again... Folks like Computerworld are publishing their lists of best places to work in IT. Other such lists cannot be far behind. Here is my challenge for those of us basically self-employed: tell the world why. Why your entrepreneurial effort beats even the best of the best in jobs. But tell us on your blog. I do not allow comments on by blog for a lot of reasons, including the spam issue. But more importantly, I would rather see you reply (to most any of my posts) on your blog, in order to see the internalization that takes place as you express yourself in your natural habitat. Simply link your reply to this post. Consider adding the tag "best places to work" for technorati and the Z-lister debate. {grin} Allow me to offer a couple thoughts of my own to start the process: Why self-employment is Thee Best Place to Work
  • I get to keep 100% of the profits
  • I get to work as late as necessary
  • I can sleep in (rarely, but the option is there, and that makes my place, one of the best places to work!)
  • I select my team mates based on their ability to produce results (not on seniority or other stupid rules that actually reduce the likelihood of producing results)
  • With today's technology, I may choose great places to live and therefore work (like my beloved Hilton Head Island or Ft. Lauderdale)
  • I get to use an Apple Mac Mini (the ultimate computer; finally a computer worthy of retiring my NeXTstation!)
  • I can ignore the phone when known bozos call
Obviously not all inclusive, but a hint at some of the reasons that make my business one of the "best places to work". Jeff 'SKI' Kinsey, Jonah P.S. Do send me a link to your post and I will acknowledge your contribution. In fact, the best contribution received by 12noon on January 7, 2007 will receive a copy of my book, Purple Curve Effect.
