Like most kids, you probably wanted to be something different every year. Then there were those few that were really ‘called’ to be something. The discipline required may have had to start at a very young age to accomplish that goal by adulthood.
Unfortunately with most of the dreams being unachievable for one reason or another, few of us are what we envisioned becoming. Thankfully this has not left a lasting scar or feeling of failure as we have forgotten or just lost interest. Many of us are satisfied at least to a degree with what we ended up doing.
On the other hand, maybe doing ‘whatever’ is not that satisfying. Whether it is conscious or sub-conscious we may be bored and feeling ‘under-utilized’. We may secretly still dream of doing more than we are right now. With most of us we are more or less stuck, degrees or not, with whatever jobs we are able to get and are making due with the amount of money we can earn.
The so-called ‘American Dream’ has degenerated so far at this point that we are just thankful to have any job at all. If we need two jobs to make ends meet then that is what we have to do. It’s really been a rude awakening for some to realize they are not entitled and everything would not come to them on a ‘silver platter’.
Again, degrees or not, we have to work to earn a living. Sometimes how hard we work determines how much income we have – in other cases it doesn’t seem to matter. We have to take what we can get to survive. We don’t want to make waves unless we are ready to deal with the possible results of starting a confrontation. There are plenty of places in life that you ‘just can’t win’.
There is however a way that we can improve our lot and that is to start a home business part-time. We would keep our day jobs for as long as possible and continue to do as well as we can. If we don’t see any way out of it or around it, then starting something on our own may not only be advantageous, it can be downright empowering. YOU are taking control of YOUR situation.
All you need is a real desire and to be motivated to do some extra work to get it set up. You will also need a decent computer and a good Internet connection. You can be running your own business in no time at all. Unless you know exactly what you want to do and already have a product or service and a website, then you might want to start out with the ‘path of least resistance’. That would be something like joining an Internet affiliate marketing program or being an independent distributor.
Just go to a search engine and run a query for either and you will see all of the available opportunities. When you research them you will find that you can start this kind of business practically for nothing – and then go on to build your own empire once you learn the ropes!
