I read recently that the United States lost nearly 2 million jobs through November 2008. The net loss, according to an article by Associate Press reporter Jeannine Aversa, is “…2.4 million jobs last year, with the pain likely to stretch well into 2009 and possibly beyond….”
Economist Richard Yamarone is quoted as saying, “…There is absolutely no reason to believe the economy is going to be creating jobs any time soon. There are just no reasons for companies to flick on the hiring switch.”
Now is the perfect time to make your own “job.” If you like the routine of an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. day, then structure it that way. If you like the freedom of setting your own hours, structure it that way. If you want to make just enough money to get by, structure it that way. If you want to become financially independent, structure it that way.
It is possible. What is “it?”
Your own home-based business. Is it possible? Yes. Now? Yes.
In the fourth quarter newsletter for the MonaVie company, founder and president Dallin Larson had this to say:
- “With the slowing economy, more and more people are looking for ways to earn additional income. During each recession that has occurred over the past 18 years that I’ve been in this industry, direct selling companies have thrived because they provide a legitimate way for people who are concerned about their financial futures to get into business for themselves and earn additional income….”
It is a direct selling business that you are the leader and manager of. The beauty of direct selling businesses like MonaVie is that you are not alone. The good ones have a team spirit and by working together with your sponsors and those you sponsor, you can reach whatever financial goals you set.
Recession does not have to define your economic situation this year. Do some research yourself. Make a decision that you will not be among the millions drawing unemployment this year, but rather you will earn your income and pump money back into our economy as a contributor. There are very good direct selling opportunities out there. Not a sales person? Fine, be a sharing person…share the excitement you have found with a fantastic product and inocme opportunity. Let your enthusiasm be contagious and pretty soon you are no longer worrying about a j.o.b.
