Are You Still
Looking For A Job?
|Most people I
know are unhappy with their jobs. The alarm clock becomes the
enemy at 6:00 o’clock on a Monday morning as its shrill cry
signals the end of an all too short weekend mini-break. But,
spurred on by the thought of a paycheck guaranteed to be there
whether the mind accompanies the body to work that day or not,
they make the noble sacrifice and head out into the big, brave
Statistics show that Home-based businesses are the hottest and fastest
growing segment of the American economy. By the end of 2005 it
is predicted that as many as 75% of the working population will
be working from their homes.
Most people would love to have a work from home job - one where they can
stay at home and work for someone else just like they do in the
Have you looked around the Internet at the "work from home jobs"? They are
mainly for the highly specialized professions - programmers,
medical and legal transcriptionists, graphic designers and for
project specialists in fields such as technology research. I
don't know about you but my expertise in these fields is almost
zero and I am sure that is true for the majority of the
population of planet earth.
To my mind these highly specialized jobs not only appeals to a very tiny
segment of the home-job-seeking population, they also do not
offer much flexibility. You don't get to pick your clients, your
co-workers, or your hours on the job. In effect you become a
telecommuter with a supervisor who wants to dictate your every
move just to make sure you are really working. What is worse is
that telecommuters are still subject to the company's employment
policies and procedures and are definitely not in control of
their working environment.
Most people who want a home-based business are not willing to exercise the
discipline it would take to start earning the thousands of
dollars the gurus and top Home Business marketers claim can be
made so easily. They are content with making just enough to pay
the bills and have a stress-free work environment.
The pros of a successful Home-based Business far outweigh the cons. A Home
Business can be anything you want it to be – A messenger
service, a hairdressing salon, affiliate marketing, an Internet
franchise, a bookstore, etc. The world is your oyster, and if
your business is an online one, you can create the business you
really want. Just think, you could be leaping out of bed each
morning excited and ready to begin work instead of prying
yourself out of bed dreading the thought of returning for even
one more day to a job you hate and a boss you despise.
The corporate world has become increasingly unpredictable . I have relatives
and friends who have changed jobs numerous times in the last 5-7
years. You would think these are entry level earners but most of
them have MA's, PHD's and advanced university degrees. Twenty
years ago, one could bank on having just 2-3 jobs in their
lifetime, the average is now between 8-16.
The corporate world is changing rapidly. Companies are downsizing or
relocating to countries that have cheaper labor costs. This
trend is set to continue. Even if you possess those rare skills
I mentioned earlier, you still won't be in full control of your
job situation until you have your own home business.
With your own home business you are in the driver's seat; you are the boss!
You set the goals and you decide the fate of your company. You
will never get laid off because the company you work for is
relocating or downsizing.
The best part is, that when you own your own home business, you get to have
leisure time and vacations whenever you want. You call the shots
because you are in control of your destiny! And, even though you
may have heard it many times before, owning your own business
is, without a doubt, your surest pathway to accumulating true
Still looking for a JOB? Whether it is an office job or you are
telecommuting - it is still a "JOB". Someone else is still
putting a cap on what your lifetime earnings would be worth.
It’s time to lift the ceiling. Start thinking seriously about
setting up and growing your own home business. You will find a
satisfaction deep inside that you never knew your work could
provide, and the Monday Morning Blues will be a thing of the
