A gentle note to young Nepalese first-time founders who are barely making minimum salary through their businesses:
In Nepal, it takes decades to become the CEO of a class-A commercial bank and to have an active yearly income of USD $100,000+. However, it takes less than 5 years to become a competent programmer and to make an active yearly income of USD $100,000+ working remotely for foreign companies.
But, whom would you value more as an insightful individual? The bank’s CEO.
And, who would you rather become? Will leave that for you to answer.
The Nepalese society isn’t short on free thinkers. It’s short on people who can express their thoughts backed by actual insights.
Also, to keep your hopes up, you may earn minimum wage for 5 years and suddenly start making what the top 1% earns in a year’s time. That is what happens to people who are in the business of expertise.
