An old boss of mine is offering me a lot more money. However, the problem I believe is that the market he has his business is in a limited one from what I can tell. More importantly, he’s burned a few bridges and has the potential to burn more. He’s a passionate man, but sometimes he distrusts too many people — enough to bury his own business as well. I’m a little worried for him because I like the man a lot. Despite leaving his company about 9 months ago to take on potentially a position that can take advantage of the 2nd largest market in Korea, he’s still kept faith in me & wants me to work with him.

Supposedly he has money from another business, but honestly, I don’t know if he can pay me the enormous salary he’s offering. He even says he’s going to buy me a car. What would you do? I have a bit of debt back home and right now, the salary, despite the post earlier about making more than the CEO, I don’t make much more than the average teacher after sending most of it to my family. However, I really wonder how he can support me & I also wonder if he can really build a strong enough business with the franchise he has — since there’s a jerk in a high position at the headquarters who’s going to honestly prevent many of the franchises from truly blossoming. Any thoughts? He’s meeting me tomorrow…so the sooner, the better. ^^

Well, if I don’t accept it, I’m going to hope the recent change in management will still grow our business. I probably won’t get much out of it minus getting exposure to a larger audience. Perhaps if it does bloom into something else, it may be better than the lucrative offer in front of me. Not sure…

    Who dares wins, but look before you leap.

    There are always too many variables in a situation like this. Get all of the information you possibly can, then go with your gut.

  2. Thanks Lee…there are TOO many variables as you say.
