Working From Home. Outstanding Option For 76 Million Struggling Americans.
That’s right, working from home and having their very own home based business may not be a bad option for the 76 million Americans that are struggling with their finances or are just barely making it. Yes, things are getting better within the American economy, inflation rate is very low, along with unemployment and wages are rising. So why is it that 46% of Americans couldn’t cover or have a very hard time coming up with a $400. emergency expense? That’s a Shame.
There are many reasons why, competition of work, lack of work, mismanagement of funds, etc. I’m sure the we can build a very long list, but then we would be focusing on the problem. So let’s just focus on the solutions, that’s why working from home and starting your very own home based business is not a bad option. Actually as far as I’m concerned it’s an excellent one. Let me give you a few reasons why working from home and starting a home based business may be the best decision you ever made. I say this to you from my very own experience.
5 reasons why I decided to start working at home.
- I was tired. Tired of struggling every month, every day. I was also to tired to go to another job after a full day as a construction worker. Night school also entered my mind, again with working 7 hours, commuting 3,4 and even 5 hours at times anything away from home was just too much.
- My Family. With 2 young children at the time and an amazing and very understanding wife. My time with my family was and continues to be a priority. Having an absolutely awesome relationship with my loved ones it was something that I just wasn’t willing to risk.
- Inconsistent income. Being a construction worker, no matter how big the project eventually the project was completed. We have a saying in the construction business: When the job is over, “The Job IS OVER” and that was happening a lot more than less.
- Economic Growth Capped. Being a Union tradesman, the only ladders I was climbing was to do my job, not to climb up the economic ladder. Yes, I could have taken a few classes in certain specialty fields in my trade, but that would have just given me a little more job security. I would have been more in demand, but that was it. Even as a foreman or a supervisor didn’t offer more that just a couple of dollars an hour. The demands, the pressure and the stress behind being a baby sitter and taking on all of the bosses headaches just didn’t seem like it was worth it and it’s not.
- It was realistic. With a very little overhead, low start up cost and learn as you go application. I was able to go at my pace, I was in total control. Working from home and starting my own home based business seemed to work for me, as long as I was willing to put in the work for it. It seemed to be the perfect fit for my schedule, my family and my financial recovery.
Now I’m not here to make you any promises, and I’m not here to say that it’s easy money and that this is the answer for you or the 76 million Americans that are struggling. Because I don’t know you or them, I know me and what it’s done for me and my family.
So many things are changing, the ole 40/ 40 plan just isn’t what it use to be. You know, work 40 ours for 40 years? And in all reality it didn’t seem like such a great promise. Plus that promise isn’t clear anymore. I also feel that my family, I deserve so much more that that. I don’t want my grand kids to have to come visit grandpa a Home depot or Sears just because I have to make ends meet, nor do I want to have to depend on them to take care of me because I failed as a provider for my wife and myself.
For me working at home and with having a home based business to promise is clear and I would gladly, with full faith, confidence and conviction suggest to anybody including my family that they should really look into working from home because “YES” it is one of the best decisions I ever made.
If it’s a fit for you, well that’s not up to me to say, I only make the suggestion, you’re the one that ultimately has to make decision, to look into it, decide and eventually commit.
However, out of those 76 million Americans. How many of them are blaming instead of taking responsibility for where they are in their lives. As I’ve learned that in order for things to improve, I need to improve. And with that being said, I’ll leave you with this quote. By Earl Nightingale.
We Are All Self Made, But Only The Successful Will Admit It.
