With so many CEOs giving themselves massive raises and laying people off to boost their own stock bonus, the only true security you’ll ever have is to go into business for yourself.
Now the truth is that you’re already in business for yourself, even if you’re working in a job because you’re selling your services to an employer. However, there’s no security in working for any company so you can’t depend on a single source of income to survive. Taht’s why you need multiple sources of income, no matter how small they may be.
When most people think of going into business for themselves, they think of massive capital outlays, physical buildings, and a full-time commitment that means quitting their current job. Not surprisingly, that thought scares most people into sticking with their current job and living lives of slow misery until they get laid off when the CEO wants another stock bonus at the workers’ expense.
The best business to start is one that involves using your specialized expertise, allows you to get started with little cost, and allows you to start it on a part-time basis. In most cases, the best business that fits all these criteria is mail-order, or in today’s world, Internet marketing. To learn more about both getting the right attitude to starting your own business and learning the specific details of mail-order or Internet marketing, read “The Millionaire Dropout.”
The basic idea behind mail-order or Internet marketing is that you can do it from your home, it won’t cost you much to get started, and you can sell to customers all over the world. With the Internet in particular, you can sell digital products that you can deliver so there’s no cost of inventory, storage, shipping, or breakable items. The Internet has opened up huge opportunities for everyone to start their own business from the comfort of their own home.
The huge advantage of digital products like e-books, videos, and software is that once you create it, you can endlessly duplicate it at no extra cost. There’s no storage or shipping costs and customers can receive your product instantly to provide immediate gratification.
If you’re truly sick of watching CEOs ransack companies for themselves while giving the workers nothing but insecurity and cutbacks, you need to go into business for yourself. If you’re a technical person, creating digital products like software or e-books will be far easier than for the non-technical person, but anyone can do it.
So here’s your choice. You can either complain and moan about the unfairness of life, or you can start your own digital business and do something about it. There’s no guarantee that you’ll succeed, but if you stay where you are, there’s a certainty that you’ll always feel insecure and trapped.
So make the decision to start your own business today. For the simplest method, start by selling digital products over the Internet by reading “The Millionaire Dropout.” You may be surprised at how taking your fate in your own hands can make you feel far more secure than clinging to a paycheck in a job you can’t stand every week.
