May I ask, are you personally involved with that business, do you know someone who is, or is it because of the popular tv show that you were asking?
hello, thecap, yes, of course you may ask.
This is how I started the topic:
Perhaps you have watched the US series "Dog" the bounty- hunter from Hawaii on TV.
I watched it yesterday, suddenly wondering what type of livelihood that is.
So no, I am not a bounty hunter, and don't personally know anybody who is. It is because of the show I happened to zap into.
But I know everything about working self employed and employing people.
But a police officer has a steady income, while for the bounty hunter it's an all-or-nothing situation: Fear of not making a living at all and desire to make lots of money.
Why do you think of being self -employed as a "all or nothing situation? " It is just not the same each month. Think of farmers and painters, -no work in the winter. Lots of work in the summer. A bounty hunter has work each month, for one, because criminality booms, and then, because criminals go underground each month.
Desire for lots of money is not what drives me, although I don't mind, and I think I can speak for many other self employed people here as well:
To do what you really want to do, to manifest your dream, is what makes many people put up with the risks of self employment.
I'm not saying that all bounty hunters are evil. I'm sure there are good ones too.
Oh, my dear! But that almost sounds like you think that the vast majority of bounty hunters is evil....when you say: "I'm sure there are good ones too..."
Could it be that you feel that "headhunting" is bad,- that it is nasty to do that?
Perhaps you've watched Wild West movies which didn't show them as nice human beings...?
I could understand that.
But Dog Chapman doesn't appear evil to me at all.
More later, it's a pleasure to speak with you.
