Building an online business could result in a much brighter future for you and your family. Things are different in the workplace today. Employers are able get by with things they never could have in the past because of the unstable job market and economy. After reading the story I’m about to tell you, ask yourself, “Could this happen to me?”
I have a very close friend (I’ll call her Jane) who is a single mother and the sole supporter of her family. The community that we live in is a very tiny rural area with no opportunity. She must commute 60 miles one way to go to work. I’ve known Jane a long time. We have worked side-by-side many times. In fact, she used to work for me. Jane is an exceptionally hard worker. She is one of the most honest and forthright women I know. Jane is an office manager for a branch office of a large corporation. She has received numerous good reports, e-mails of gratitude from her superiors and a perfect score on her annual evaluation less than a month ago.
Recently and without notice, Jane’s branch manager informed her that she would no longer be the office manager. Instead, she would be a driver for the company on the midnight shift. No explanation, no reason, no choice. The very next day the branch manager’s best friend started her new career as the new office manager. Now, Jane’s little children have to sleep at a babysitter’s house while she works midnights. Jane has a family to feed, a roof to keep over their heads and no options.
I am so grateful that I work for myself from home for a myriad of reasons. A few of the top ones are; I work on the projects I want, when I want, as much as I want. I’m the boss. I know I have to be disciplined in order to create the income I need, but no one decides what, when, where and how much. That is for me to decide. In this day and age and this economy nothing is a sure thing. In a slow job market such as the one that we are in, you’re lucky to have a job. Being selective is not an option. Employers take advantage and get away with much more than they could just a few short years ago. Injustice runs rampant in the workplace today.
If you’re wondering “Could this happen to me?” you do have options. Now Jane is working nights and spending a couple hours a day learning how to build an online business. She has decided to take control of her future by learning to be her own boss. It may take her a while to be able to quit her job, but she’s on her way! I’m very proud of her for making this decision.
If you’ve been thinking about working from home and taking control of your future, there’s no time like the present. Whether you want a full-time career or extra income, you can learn how.
To get started online, I suggested that Jane learn the basics of Internet marketing so she could create a fairly quick income producing business that she could build on. These same things could work for you. My friend is much more confident about her future today than she was just a short time ago. You can be to.
