Maybe I don't run a business

Maybe I don't run a business because:

  1. I don't want to.
  2. I like being obligated to only 40 hours, Monday through Friday. Even that is too much. It's much more than half of one's awake life being spent getting ready for, traveling to, and returning home from work.
  3. Most business I find to be an immoral psychological game of getting people to buy more crap they simply don't need on top of services/products they've already purchased. I have nothing to peddle but niche ideas/products that are never profitable. Even the stuff I've made, I have kept the source and information completely open.
  4. I like working my ass off, not managing. Management is glorified babysitting. I find working and being poor to be less stressful than being a manager and having no financial woes. Working is also exercise. Having a desk job requires one to spend personal time exercising. Most people cram that activity into an hour or less, which is pretty unhealthy. It's a newer trend, so until people who are living that lifestyle get old, my opinion that people who are vegans and/or have exercise routines don't live long will only be a theory.
  5. I don't want to deal with bullshitters who think degrees matter and idiots who think they are actually skilled.
  6. I don't want to deal with being sued for discriminating against people I hire and customers.
  7. I think there is such thing as too much money, and in my opinion it's around $50k/year. I don't think people don't have the right to have more than that, I just personally don't want more than that because I would go crazy and just become a drug, sex, or gambling addict, so don't try to label me a socialist for this statement.

I had some other reasons in my head, but they've since escaped my mind.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.
