Times are tough, there are no disputing that. I’ve recently been doing a lot of reading, and as usual, picking one author and reading everything they write. This time, my selection was Malcolm Gladwell, after reading Mr. Gladwell’s work, I have settled that on “Outliers” as his only real master work. Gladwell seems some interesting inferences in his work, and mainly its about the breaks that people have and the advantages that they are allowed. According to the author, there are no real coincidences, only good hard work. However, he makes a valid point, and that is seizing upon opportunity.
Its in a down economy that we learn a lot of things, and the first being that it is an opportunity. Fortunes are made when people take risks, when the time is not exactly right. Its owning and starting a business that allows us to really gain that consistent income that we all seek, not being dependent upon another. Its not that it is a huge risk, rather it is a shift in thinking. The shift is in responsibility level, you are responsible for if something gets done or not, and the success of others. It is the shift in responsibility that is difficult more most people to handle. You are the cause of your universe, and thats too much for some people; I think its exhilarating.
Its in a down economy, that many people get downsized, that’d the luckiest break that they can possibly have. They can be set free from the bondage that their life of being at the effect of their J-O-B places them at. It is super important to think big picture, many people miss that.
The internet is rapidly growing, and hit $1.5 trillion last year. I’m not sure about you, but I’d like to make even 1/3 of a percent of that every year. I think we can all agree that the internet is not going anywhere at all. With such a huge marketplace out there, why not make it work for you? The time is right to own a piece of the internet, I’m so happy I made that choice to Franchise. Now I can gain off of this huge, rolling title wave that is coming in internet retailing. People are going to shop anyway, why not help them do it and profit off it as well? That’s a win for everyone and a no brainer if you ask me.
