Default Toll positions and job security...

Shy fellow that Ned is - he chose option C.

Thanks again, Glenn! As usual, great information!

Getting job security is not always 100% possible. However, I think the best way is to make yourself indispensable and as irreplaceable as possible - like Ned in Glenn's case study.

I think about it in terms of "toll positions." You can possibly get a "toll position" in your work (if you are employed). Ned got himself a kind of "toll position" in Glenn's case study above. It's not always easy, but sometimes it is possible.

Thanks Glenn for more entrepreneurial-brain-stimulating stuff!

Best wishes,
