Starting out with your own business will probably be one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make, but the ends will definitely justify the means if you can commit yourself to being successful. There are millions of people in this world that have made the decision to forgo their own dreams and entrust their futures to the corporate world. With insurance options, benefit packages and many other perks, this has always been considered the ‘responsible’ decision for educated people, until now.
Today the world is faced with failing 401(k)s, diminishing benefits and massive layoff’s. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in November alone, employers laid-off over 224,079 workers. This doesn’t even begin to touch the recent corporate layoffs for 2009, from such giants as Nortel, Microsoft, Google, and Motorola.
More and more, we are seeing an amazing trend coming out of this newly unemployed workforce, they are going solo and becoming the entrepreneurs they have always dreamed of becoming. CNN Money and the editors of Money Magazine recently created a handbook for Would-Be Entrepreneur’s that states:
If your career to date has been spent inside organizational flow charts
with more layers than baklava, starting your own shop is bound to be an adjustment.
It’s business time people! It’s time to quit being a would-be entrepreneur and start living out your dreams. Whether you want to create furniture out of recycled beer cans or you have a passionate desire to become the next Web 2.0 Guru, the world is rediscovering the Land of Opportunity that it once was, and the choice is now completely yours.
whether you’ve lost your job or you just want to switch careers,
creating a business starts with a unique idea and a solid plan of action.
- Joe Wallace, President of Growth Alliance of Greater Evansville
Once you have the idea and create your plan, success no longer becomes a matter of the economic situation, but a matter of self-discipline and ingenuity.
The future now belongs to you – where in the world are you going from here?
