This is worthy of a long essay... however, it's already 6:30 AM, and I need to attend to my business.
What comes to mind immediately, is that it was my nature as a Satanist
that drove me to be a self-employed businessman from as far back as I can remember thinking about the subjects of money and control of my life.
I had twenty years of being my own boss (some years more successfully then others!) before
I stumbled across the fact that I had been born a Satanist and had been applying Satanic principles in my businesses (as in the rest of my life) all along.
Having the principles I had always been using anyway
spelled out clearly and explicitly as Satanic
provided both an epiphanal confirmation and
One thing (among many) that is so extremely beautiful about Satanic thought, specifically regarding business, is that Satanism removes all moralistic barriers and boundaries around the subject of greed, wealth, and societal collectivist notions of having to balance one's welfare (which is definitely real) with some sort of charitable philanthropic impulses/actions (which is somewhat abstract and on a lesser level of "reality").
It is natural for some, but not all, to have a natural desire to contribute to "others": Satanism puts this natural (for some) impulse firmly in the category of a chosen pleasurable indulgence, rather than a mandatory compulsion.
(Those who choose to argue this point may want to review the sin of solipsism and
carefully research the behaviour of primates in groups first. The impulse to compassion for the non-biologically-related helpless young of our species is not simply an invention of white-light religions, but "million-year" hard-wired... in some... but not all. White-lighters solipsize this quality, some Satanists I have observed solipsize its absence.)
It has been my intent to be a billionaire for as long as I can remember. The odds are against me, obviously.
However, should I achieve that, (or any fraction of it), it is great to know that I don't have to
ever share a fucking penny with "those less fortunate", unless of course doing so would provide an addtional source of pleasure and gratification
, which in my case, it would.
Excuse my taking your question off on a tangent. I'm sure others will address your specific questions in a somewhat more straightforward manner.
In short, whether a businessperson knows it or not, if they are successful, Satanic principles have been
Inversely, many business principles are inherently Satanic. Satanists who fail to study solid business principles, even if they employed by others, a student, or stay-at-home parent, are missing a great deal of useful information applicable by metaphor in other ways.
This subject is worthy of not one, but probably many books.
Time to go mind my business.
