My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Small-Business Bonus.” In it, I discuss the advantages to working for a small-sized business — to both your career and your personal life.
For most of my career, I’ve worked for big businesses. In fact, some of the biggest. I was fortunate that my very first job was for auto giant General Motors, and along the way, I also spent time at FedEx and Westinghouse, to name a few.
There are many advantages to working for such large firms. You often receive a higher salary, and top-notch health care benefits. Your workplace comes with perks like an onsite gym, continuing education curriculum, and possibly even a free lunch.
But, as you can guess, that free lunch comes with a price. Sometimes that price is your personal identity, and professional growth.
To read all the reasons a small business can help you now, and in your future career, check out my entire Memphis Daily News column here.
