2000 Staff Made Redundant by E-mail – Why Everyone Should Definitely Have Their Own Business
Today the Audit Office announced that it was making 2000 staff redundant and informed them – by e-mail – How bloody insensitive!
50% of over 50’s now out of work
A recent article in a national newspaper has stated that 50% of older workers are now out of work, the highest figure for over a decade.
Why Do You Work?
Ask yourself the above question, why do you work and you will come up with a stream of answers. The main one must be financial security. I know that there are some out there who talk about not working for money and that money isn’t everything to them – and so it shouldn’t be. There are more important things in life like our health and happiness. However, in the society we live in our barging power is money. That is the medium by which all trade is done.
You Trade Your Time for Money
Basically you trade your time for money and you are worth (in the eyes of your employer) what you are being paid. That’s the deal. You put in ‘x’ hours a month and they will pay you ‘x’ amount a month. We are all basically ‘money prostitutes’.
Why Not Start Paying Yourself What you Believe You Are Worth?
I believe that everyone should have their own business – even if you are already in employment. It adds income in your pocket and has great tax advantages. Also, it allows you to be the master of your ship, the captain of your own destiny. More importantly it allows you to be free to choose what you do, where you live and how you live. Now I don’t want to paint a too rosy picture here. You have to work hard and put the hours in. But if you work for someone else you are doing that anyway – BUT FOR SOMEONE ELSE! SO WHY NOT DO IT FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY?
I have been in business for myself now for over 20 years and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Yes I’ve had hardship and yes I’ve learned a lot, but the rewards far, far outweigh the hardships.
