Working for an employer can be frustrating for many different reasons, but one of the most prevalent ones is the lack of freedom you have as an employee. Because you depend on someone else to sign your paycheck and make a living, you have to adhere to their rules, even if that means sacrificing your time and doing the things that you love. The new rules of how to live your life in and out of work just won’t accept these limitations!
Forbes reports that a recent Mercer Consulting Group study that polled thousands of workers in the United States and around the world found that nearly one in two American workers who are satisfied with their jobs are seriously considering leaving — “I LOVE MY JOB BUT I AM LEAVING,” SAY 42% OF VERY SATISFIED WORKERS SURVEYED IN MERCER RESEARCH.
The daily grind of working on someone else’s schedule is hard enough, but it feels even worse when you miss out on things that can be the real highlights in life, such as plans with close friends or a chance to watch your kid’s sporting event or music recital. When you work for someone else, you defer control of your time and your personal and financial freedom to them.
People that say “well, that’s just the way it is” are caught in the “old school” mentality that has been burned into their brains by society. The “new school” mentality is to start your own business and re-take control of your personal and financial freedom! And thanks to direct selling, anyone has the opportunity to leave behind their old lifestyle without taking the major risk of starting their own small business from scratch.
78% of direct sellers say that direct selling meets or exceeds their expectations as a business in which the harder they work the more money they can make. There has to be something to starting a home-based business through a direct sales company as more than 18.2 million are doing it in America alone!
The level of expectations being exceeded continuously in direct sales is in stark contrast to the expectations of most employees that are hoping for a small percentage raise in salary, to hit the glass ceiling or any other earnings constraint. It is very unlikely that most employees can achieve the millionaire status working for somebody else! This may be the largest constraint that you place on yourself as an employee.
When you work for yourself, you make your own schedule and your own financial opportunities. Of course there will still be sacrifices to make, but you get to determine when and where those sacrifices come and prioritize your life how you want to, instead of conforming to how someone else has prioritized theirs.
Working on your own time with your own home-based business, you can work more efficiently, feel more energized and be happier overall around the clock and at the bank!
