What is a Plan B? A Plan B is the answer when your life is not heading in the direction you wanted to head, Plan B is when you have been searching for a job for over a year and nothing has happened. So have you considered your Plan B?
So many have been struggling to find a job since they were laid-off or the company they worked for shut their doors. The numbers have been staggering each month with numbers hitting over 600,000. The numbers of available jobs are limited and many employers are playing games with potential new hires. What do I mean by games? The stories we have been hearing from job seekers is really disheartening, one person went on an interview for a job that paid $22.00 per hour however, upon completing the interview the potential employer dropped the pay to $12.00 per hour because of supply and demand. Supply and demand means more job seekers than jobs so I do not have to pay you what you are worth and you still have to perform at your best.
Time to stop the madness and get your Plan B into action. They have stated that today is the age of the “Accidental Entrepreneur”, a day where people are forced into being an entrepreneur due to lack of choice. However, they also said it is the best time ever to be in this position! So let’s look at creating your Plan B, below are a few things to begin thinking about as you consider your Plan B:
• What am I passionate about?
• What am I skilled at doing?
• How much can I invest into a business?
• Do I want to do a MLM/Direct Sales Business or start my own?
• How much time am I willing to commit to make it happen?
• Who is my target market?
• Will I provide a skill, product or service?
• Who do I need in my spear of influence?
These are just a few questions to ask yourself as you journey into your Plan B. Also keep in mind it takes time to bring in the cash flow when starting a business and if you choose to do a MLM/Direct Sales Business it may take longer. You do not make thousands of dollars in these types of businesses overnight it takes time. Many making good money in these types of businesses have been in the business for 10-20 years, don’t be sold a bag of goods so quick, do your homework!
