My idea of "success" is achieving one's goals, regardless of how grandiose or humble they may be.
For me, personally, that is being self-employed and at least scraping by.
My boss lives in another state and I still ain't where I want to be
If incarcerated in a private prison, can the owner be considered your 'boss?' If yes? No.
I'm sure all the sweat shops around the world agree.
I don't understand that reasoning. Why would your boss loving in another state/country make YOU more successful?
I'm pretty sure your successful when your boss goes with you everywhere...and eats with u ...and showers with you... and sleeps with you
