What is 2019 going to look like for you and your family? If you’re stuck in a dead-end job, spending your time making money for someone else, and hoping your year-end bonus isn’t a “pink slip”, your most likely answer: Another job.
It’s a New Year – Time to stop settling for the “New Normal” !
Terry Powell, the CEO and Visionary Founder of The Entrepreneur Source®, North America’s leading career and franchise business coaching company, says, “We want people to stop settling for the ‘New Normal!’ Job security is a thing of the past. Working longer, for less, is what the business economy demands today.”
It’s no secret hundreds of thousands of people are unhappy in the workplace, dissatisfied with their career path, and pay, and just hanging on, hoping it will get better before they retire-or are forced out.
“At The Entrepreneur’s Source®, we call this “The Battered Career Syndrome®”, and for too long, Americans have bought into the notion they can’t leave a job, and must make constant trade-offs to keep it. But it can be done, and all it takes is an unflinching look at your current position, and the Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity (I.L.W.E.) goals you could have by becoming your own boss!”
Your Career 2.0®
Self-sufficiency is a only dream, until you write it down – then it becomes a goal.
Let’s examine the I.L.W.E. goals our book, Your Career 2.0®, will help you identify and achieve:
Financial freedom is probably not possible in your current position. Salaries just don’t grow nearly as fast as they did years ago, and they’re not likely to again. Do you want the option of becoming self-sufficient, and earning what you’re worth, and not just a paycheck – which could vanish with the next corporate merger? Let’s face it: what got you here, won’t get you there!
People today don’t mind working hard, especially if it directly benefits them. Do you want a career which offers you more flexibility and freedom, or are you thrilled with telling your family over and over there’s no time for a vacation? There are no guarantees that all the hours you put in mean your job is secure, so why keep playing that game?
This is the by-product of an increasing income. You not only fund your current lifestyle, but entertain options to grow real wealth. The kind of wealth which can help secure yours and your family’s future.
While you’re living paycheck to paycheck, like millions of Americans, can you even dream of growing your net worth? Also, are you that confident the money in your 401K will be enough for retirement, or even be there when you do retire?
How much of your current job do you own? Unless you have stock in your company – not much.
Real equity comes when you own your own business, and it becomes an asset you can use as you pay off debts associated with it. That’s another positive option of being self-sufficient. Plus, it can be passed on to the next generation, if you desire.
What’s the next step?
Gathering the facts and using Your Career 2.0® and The Entrepreneur’s Source® as your Guide.
