An interesting read, thanks to hubby for spotting it. My thoughts:
You put in time and effort and use company resources, materials and know-how to make products which, after the company sells them, bring in revenue used to compensate for your time and effort. And maybe the company might throw in some employment benefits for good measure.
You transform your skills, know-how and connection into services and products using company imposed infrastructure and resources which are not necessarily built with your interest in mind. In fact these may be some cumbersome that you have to expend resourcefulness and skills to work around them.
How can work give you the ROI for your assets without undermining your productivity through useless rules, tools and fools?
