Red and orange are self employed
- The plan to build up a company is the most risky – it could go either way

The other four are employed in a company
- Corporate Slave: go into management and work your way up. Can be well paid but long hours and if your face doesn’t fit you’re out!
- Retire Early – pay a price now for time off later.

- Job you love – vocation – e.g. musician, writer, nurse, designer – might not be great pay but happiness 5 days a week

Green and purple are similar happiness – one has a fun job, while the other has a job that is at least easy, and fun outside
