My thinking is that economically empowered people are happier doing what they love to do, especially if they are in a business that they own.
What do you think?
Is economically empowered the same as "funded" or not necessarily?
Or, is empowerment something that ideally comes from within?
Either way, I'm all for doing what you're passionate about. Makes work less like work!
I prefer to treat simply being empowered and being economically empowered as two separate issues.
But I think it helps if you are not dependent on a job in which you work. These days an employer can look at an online profile, say like Facebook and not like what you have posted and decide that you are not the kind of employee they would prefer to have in their company.
I think having your own income independent of a corporate employer allows you more freedom to be yourself or be freer.
Being funded could be a form of empowerment, depending on who funds you.
