I have my owner business. l love working with people.
I'd been my own boss for 40 so I was not used working under the direction or at the whim of another person. applied for a short term job for which I was well qualified and was quite surprised when they did not offer me the job.
During my 40-ish years on this planet, I at no time ever thought I was smart enough, successful enough or had a drive within me that screamed 'I want my own business!!' Now, I was screaming, don't get me wrong. "I want more time! I want more money! I want more freedom! I want MORE!" It wasn't until my former company eradicated my position that I realized I was under paid, under appreciated and under managements thumb. I realized that in order to live my life to its fullest potential, I needed to be in business for myself. I found a company that allows me to do just that. For those of you job seekers currently looking for MORE. If you have high integrity, great people skills, strong work ethic, a desire to help others while helping yourself AND can pass a state background check. We should talk....About more.
All throughout the posts people complain about not having a job and not being able to find a job. What is a job? Who makes jobs? Who hires people to perform jobs? PEOPLE. PEOPLE MAKE JOBS AND HIRE OTHER PEOPLE TO DO JOBS. ....so if you can't find another person to work for, then you person create the job. Get off your butt and create something. I'm not talking about art , music blah blah. I'm also not talking about blogging or starting some stupid scheme where you get other people to get other people to get other people......I am talking about you Walter, Dave, Jessie, Amanda, whoever you are, look at yourself and say what can I do that other people either can't do or don't want to do. Here's a list of stuff people don't want to do taxes, raise kids, watch kids, clean their house, cut the lawn, paint their house, fold clothes, make dinner, walk the dog study for test, pay their bills, be fat, be skinny, be ugly, be alone, drive themselves, write, draw, and this is only the surface. Times have changed. To start a business you don't need to get buy a building and do all that uncle SAM stuff. All you have to do is do it. Whatever it is. Go to the library and make some free business cards on brothers.com and work! Network yourself. Ironically, you'd be willing to do all this and more for someone else but can't do it for yourself. And for those MASTER DEGREES out there teach!!!!!! Go to those rich schools where the parents pay all that money for their kids to be successful. And you tutor them. You have masters degree. You are smart and you are exactly where they want their kid to be. Use preppy voice and sound smart and get paid.
If i cant get a reliable income soon i dont know what im going to do. My friend entrusted me with some important information and
i had a interferriance and he cant find it. i tried to hell him and he hung up on me. i wish he would call me so we can fix everything im sure if it wasnt where i thought i had it that i KNOW where it might be. he sends me all these encrypted messages yes entertaing and fun however somdtimes i just like the facts straight in plain english. I was going to start a business i put ALL the money i jad into it and someone hacked my system and took it all away even distroyed 4 computers 3 phones in the process. He doesnt think im truthful with my intentions buti assure you i am . you see along with my business i was going to design an app for my clients so they could track there weight lose food intake and so on a tool kit with the 4or 5 basic apps together to make things easier. something got in my way . i had no idea tgat someone was depending on me or things would have been more accepting to changes that were being done had i known it wasnt someone trying to harm me only help me. i guess he should have CALLED ME to get things right. Well i hope this all goes well i really want to help my friend and i hope i can before my water and power gets shut off and hopefully my car doesnt get repoed or finally break since its running bad. wish i could get the magic numbers to get my bills paid so i can focus better. boy if my cable gets shut off again there is no way im going to beable ti help and that saddens me because i really enjoy assisting him and now that i know hes o my side i will be more cooroperative however he cant be a bully and take my life over! any suggestions?

Growing or shrinking? Changing the way we work? Experts weigh in on how freelance, gigging, and contract work will change in 2017.
Great article from Fast Company on the Gig Economy...
"The gig economy has been on the rise for several years, and many reports point to a continued trend in American workers taking on both side gigs and cobbling together a living from a hodgepodge of short-term work or longer-term contracted jobs.
Findings from Adobe revealed that as many as one-third of the 1,000 U.S. office workers they polled had a second job and more than half (56%) predicted we would all have multiple jobs in the future. The annual report from Upwork and the Freelancers Union found that more people than ever are choosing to freelance, up to 55 million this year, or 35% of the total U.S. workforce. As many as 81% of traditional workers they surveyed said they would "be willing to do additional work outside of [their] primary job if it was available and enabled [them] to make more money."
The same thing has been happening to me for the last two years since graduating college. I am 52 and have a bachelors in marketing and have interviewed many times and not been hired. The employers have passed us by in favor of younger less expensive help. I am going the self employed route. If you can’t work fir yourself. Then you may have to change careers.
I am just getting started with my own business and got two phone calls for interviews. I an going to work it all out, and still go forward with business.
