Surviving in the Age of Instability

Recent Studies show that 80%of all American People are “Career Disturbed”. Some of the reasons for job dissatisfaction are:

Being Underpaid Limited Chances for advancement Building a company for someone else Lack of recognition and boredom No Job Security Lack of Freedom and Flexibility Lack of Control of over your own destiny

Stats from NSD Barbara Sunden:

Only four out of 10 are prepared for retirement Home-based business’ are on the rise and the wave of the future.

Can you see the benefits of owning your own business?

Many financial advisors have stated when you work for someone else, it’s like renting a home – all the money goes into building someone else’s equity and you don’t reap any of the benefits. But when you own your own business, it’s like owning a home; now you can reap all the benefits it has to offer!

Fortune Magazine stated that “change is reshaping companies and altering how they operate. In the 90’s, there were more unemployed and displaced workers in this country than there were in the Great De- pression.” At the end of 2000, half of all working Americans (60 million) are working freelance, con- tract labor, or temporary.” Newsweek Magazine stated that by the year 2005, 50% of working Ameri- cans will have a Home Based Business. It’s a trend that we can not ignore”.

Newsweek Magazine also stated everyone must have a “Plan B”! Too many people are losing their jobs and they have no backup plan. We have no control over our own destiny when we work for someone else – we don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Doesn’t it make sense to have that “Plan B” so when something does happen, you’ll be prepared?
