Late home again? Trying to earn living for your parents and kids but unable to actually live with them. All caught between daily 9 - 5, but still can’t provide the right type of life to your family because - Boss. But then look at the line, man! Its bosses on bosses on bosses. Has this become your natural state? Lost in being part of the system for so long that you have now lost your family and life. 
            Life has just become a run of the mill job. It’s hard and getting harder. But has it not been this way always? It ain’t all sunshine and rainbow, is it? Busy with your daily errands, you have even given up that little childish dream of yours to be big, rich & famous. Is that not everybody’s dream? The bright lure of future diminishes your life’s joy in this mad scramble for identity. It’s the unspoken truth of humanity, but all of us just crave fame. Deep down all of us just want to be the next Steve Jobs or Weili Dai. Sitting in your cubicle, thoughts like this sift through your mind and you wonder how did I end up here in the first place? How the billionaire in your dreams did is still stuck in mediocre 9-5 life. Maybe it’s time to move up the line of bosses and be your own boss! But how?
