I love this saying..."If it is to be, it's up to me!" This has been my motto my whole life. There has never been a time that I put my life in anyone else's hands...except for the time that I had a J-O-B...and we know that stands for Just Over Broke! When I worked for someone else, my life was in their hands. And I remember when that was the comfort zone, you go to work you get paid. Well that's not so anymore. Actually, I was listening to the audio CD on this month's SUCCESS magazine and a speaker on there said the worst place you could be right now in today's society is working for someone else.
Analysts actually state that the next year and a half is the best time in our lifetimes to become an entrepreneur! See with the way the economy is right now and all of the BIG businesses shutting their doors, the playing field has been evened. For those of you who have ever wanted to start a business or had an idea that you thought would sell great in stores, there is no better time than right now to get those started! In the next 20 to 30 years, the big businesses that will be the size of Targets, Jack in the Boxes, Ross...they will look back and see that those business owners started their businesses from scratch in 2009-2010.
This is where the "if it is to be, it's up to me" comes in...I have taken the "business owner" mentality myself and quit my "J-O-B" and went to work for myself. Yes, it has its challenging times and there will be ups and downs...but at the end of the day, I am my own boss. I will never work harder for someone else than I would work for myself...and I live that to be true every single day.
There is one more thing you have to look for in this economy...and that is a shift in technology. Please know, and let everyone you know know...we are going into a shift in technology right now and it's with the phone. If you would like to learn more about this awesome way I am able to stay at home with my kids every single day...please send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org ...I would love to share it with you. It's changing peoples lives. :)
Now get to work...LOL
