Creating your own economy (quick read)

Jan 5th 2011 at 6:27 AM

A good friend of mine is a fantastic mechanic.  After 32 years, he was informed that his services were no longer needed.  Translation:  In this case, my friend's services were needed, but the company chose to replace him and pay the new mechanic half as much.

Another good friend has devoted 14 years with a company.  This business recently announced they were moving the operation from Massachusetts to North Carolina.

Don't let this happen to you!  Businesses will continue to downsize, close, move, and outsource.  As long as someone else controls your future, stability is not guaranteed.

Jobs are hard to find.  A good job even harder.  A career is almost non-existent.  The time is now to create your own destiny.  Figure out what you love to do and make it profitable.  You can do this while working at your 9 to 5.  One of my favorite phrases is "A living from 9 to 5.  Fortunes are made after hours."

Our "job" in 2011 and beyond, is to begin to create our own economy. 

I wish you the absolute best.  If I may ever help, please drop me a line anytime.  I'd be happy to assist.

Thanks for this Sammy. I have been "Downsized" myself a few times over the past decade. That is why I decided to start my own business, and make my own security. I'll never go back to relying on someone else for the security of my family.

I love it..."Fortunes are made after hours". That's what I am working on too...making my own economy. I hope you don't mind that I am following you. Have a good evening :)
