Not Landed Gentry

An entrepreneur is never “landed gentry.” We work hard for a living, work hard to give back, and when we rest, do so with the satisfaction that we did our best.

Whether you established your own company, freelance, or are an employee, you can have the attitude of an entrepreneur.

What’s Landed Gentry?

The landed gentry refers to wealthy landowners who hold a higher social status in rural areas, deriving their income from the land they own. They traditionally wielded influence and power within their communities, playing important roles in local politics, society, and governance.

Not you. You’re the real deal. You get up each morning and think about how you can work and serve as opposed to be served by people working for you. The best leaders think this way as do the best employees.

Have a happy weekend. You earned it.
