Why some engineers, should stay engineers.

You should stay an engineer, and not get into "business" if:
  1. You are a recluse.
  2. You don't like cold-calls.
  3. Money doesn't motivate you.
  4. Solving challenging Technical problems makes you happy.
  5. "Closing" a big deal happen doesn't get you high.
  6. You prefer a low stress environment.
  7. You don't like taking risks.
  8. You hate traveling.
  9. You enjoy dressing like that guy.
The ironic part is, I ignore this, and do it anyway... some days (like today) I miss being an engineer.
#2, #3, #4, #6, #8, and #9 all appeal to me... yet I've been "doing business" now for 6 years.

Who am I kidding?

I do love #5 though!
