Is Job-ism A bigger Threat To America Than Communism?

You'll never fully appreciate what the word "free" in free enterprise means until has been taken from you. I know, because in 1959 my father was a successful businessman in Cuba worth over $20 million. When Fidel Castro and his communist government took over the country, my parents were forced to escape overnight with just the clothes on their backs. I tell you this because I see millions of my fellow Americans taking free enterprise for granted! And it breaks my heart!

The sad truth is, Americans have conditioned themselves to believe in a movement almost as dangerous as Communism. I call it Job-ism. Under Communism, the government takes away your freedom and forces you to depend on them for all your basic needs. Under Job-ism, you voluntarily give away your freedom in exchange for a weekly paycheck. That's why Iv'e written this book -- to change the dissatisfied employees of America to own their own lives again by owning their own business... never again having to worry about a boss looking over their shoulders!

That's why I decided to write this book. To warn you to beware of the velvet trap of job dependence. To let you know there's a high price to be paid for depending on the government or an employer for your livelihood. To steer you back on the right path once and for all, to independence through free enterprise!

What You Can Expect From This Book

In the first section of this book, titles " Either way, you pay! " you'll learn that the key to independence  has been right in front of you all along. You'l learn that the price you'll pay for a life of mediocrity is much higher than the price you'll have to pay for success.  In the second section, titled " An American Addiction -- Being Broke, " you'll learn why being broke is reaching epidemic proportions and why there's a big difference between being broke and being poor. Finally, you'll learn about the myth of job-security and why jobs are becoming less and less secure. In the final section, "An Intelligent Alternative: Independence Through Free Enterprise, " You'll learn the secret of creating -- and keeping -- wealth. You'll learn all about what I consider to be the ideal business for the coming decade, and you'll be challenged to break out of the cycle of dependence once and for all by signing your personal Declaration of Independence!

I'd like to think this book is more than a book about making money or going into business for yourself. It's really about making choices.  Here's a poem that says it better than I ever could:

"There was a very cautious man
Who never laughed or played.
He never risked, he never tried;
He never sang or prayed.
And when he one day passed away
His insurance was denied.
For since he never lived,
They claimed he never died."
-Anonymous


It's my sincere hope that this book will encourage you to choose independence over dependence... to free yourself form a boss... to choose to act rather than procrastinate... and to choose, above all, to live your life with purpose and passion rather than fearful caution.

5 Stars
This book is great for anyone thinking about starting their own business.
If you have any insecurities about leaving the world of jobism, they will all disappear after reading this book. This book was written back in 1995 and boy didn't Hedges call it right? Many of those people who hung their hopes on a J-O-B now find themselves out of work and attacked Hedges for this book and it's predecessor, "Who Stole The American Dream", are probably wishin they had listened to Hedges instead of attacking him.The very popular Rich Dad series of books is interestingly sending out the same message only to a larger audience---you must go from employee to self employed if you want to succeed. The best and fairest boss that you will ever have is the one you see every morning in the mirror.
