PILLAR FIVE: CITIZENSHIP
You may begin your business as a Solopreneur, a Sole Proprietor. And as your business grows, there may be reasons to incorporate others into your business. Their legal (tax) designation is one thing, and their relationship with your company is another.
Advantage subscribes to everyone being a visitor (at first) and then, if so inclined, a “citizen” of your world (company). We believe this is derived from the effective management of their personal free will to become part of the company. A “resource” is considered by Advantage to be inanimate. Therefore, a resource cannot exert free will, reasoning, or decision. The status quo refers to this as Human Resources. Advantage believes that “humans” are humans rather than a “resource.”
DO YOU HAVE CONTROL
THE EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF FREE WILL
One of the four criteria for happiness is control. We define control as
the effective management of free will. Everyone has control if they
choose to. Get away from the terrible nightmare that is “being normal.”
You are an acquired taste, and this is a good thing!
EMPOWERMENT & AUTHORITY
WHY IS THIS SIMPLE AND NOT EASY
It is literally impossible to be anyone, female or male, that finds themselves stuck in a pattern of continuously being kicked down and spun around through a litany of paradoxes. How is “the Game” played so we come out whole, healthy, and functional? How is “the game” played so we “Live in A Perpetual Cycle of Profitability®”
THE ULTIMATE TEST
WHAT IS IT AND HOW TO PASS IT
Doesn't every entrepreneur have a fire with a total loss story? That's the way it goes. You passed the ultimate test.
THE THREE STEP ANTIDOTE
ELIMINATING THE VOICE SNATCHERS
Be aware and be prepared about Voice Snatchers…Who are the masters of denial, misdirection, contradiction, and misinformation? Gas lighters.
Extremely dangerous. The creepy cousin of the emotional manipulator. Gaslighting is an insidious form of abuse. If you sense any one of these tactics is being perpetrated upon you, excuse yourself from the environment swiftly. This sounds simple. It is NOT easy.
BE A WORK LIFE SUPPORT PROVIDER
THE ART OF CHECKING IN WITH YOUR FELLOW WORKERS
Work Life Support means checking in at the office, be it virtual or on-site. It is super important in any business. We all feel, at times, sad or hopeless. Your co-workers could be feeling this way. Consider these compassionate statements for conversation. Giving a voice to this person helps their - and your - career.
