In a bad economy, would you rather be an employee or in business for yourself?
Sounds like a tough question, doesn’t it? Especially right now.
After all, thousands and thousands of hard working people are losing their jobs with little or no warning.
Doesn’t really matter who you are, what you do, what you make, or how long you’ve been there.
As an employee in this economy, tomorrow could be the day a pink slip shows up on your desk.
But then again….
Businesses are closing up shop left and right. A lot of business owners are finding their revenues shrinking… and their profits disappearing.
A lot of business owners lie awake at night wondering how they’re going to meet payroll or pay their suppliers. How they’re going to keep the ship afloat long enough till things turn around.
So let me ask you again:
Who’s in a better position here? The employee or the business owner?
The Difference Between Thinking Like an Employee and Thinking Like a Business Owner
If you asked me this question, I’d take the role of the business owner EACH and EVERY time.
No questions asked.
And here’s the reason.
EMPLOYEES work within a world that is defined by someone ELSE. That’s the nature of an employee. You are needed as long as you are helping the business owner build THEIR dream.
THEIR dream is the focus… Yours has to fit within that.
The business owner mindset is completely different. (This is why so many employees struggle to start a business if they don’t have the right training. They don’t shift their mindset.)
Business owners create their own world.
They build their OWN dreams.
And they keep the rewards… unless they choose to share them.
If you think these generalizations are unfair, I understand. However, in my 43 years of business experience, I’ve witnessed this again and again.
Business owners have one thing that employees will never have:
CONTROL OVER WHAT TO DO NEXT
Sure they’re are exceptions. There always are.
But pointing them out doesn’t help you or me. Pointing out the exceptions just creates another excuse for NOT taking action to change your life.
My goal is not to be harsh here. But desperate times call for desperate measures. And THESE are certainly desperate times…
Because businesses are crashing down left and right. Businesses that YOU could be saving. Business owners who need to be shown how to double and triple their profits with little or no out of pocket expense.
Businesses that need to be shown how to get MORE customers in the door, to buy MORE things, MORE often.
What’s it worth to a business owner to have some help in steering their 5 million dollar business away from rough waters?
It’s worth a LOT to them. And they will pay dearly for that help.
And that’s why it’s so simple to make a significant income as a business consultant.
As a consultant, YOUR income is DIRECTLY tied to the amount of value you provide to the marketplace.
There IS no ceiling here…
You are in control of your future… for better or worse.
There’s just one problem:
The Buck Stops with You
In the business world, there IS no try. You either do it or you don’t.
You either make a million dollars or you don’t. You either get the contract or you don’t.
If it works out, you get 100% of the credit.
If it doesn’t, you hold 100% of the responsibility.
When you strip away all of the “start your own business” hype you see all over the place, that’s what you have left.
You have a person who stands up and says, “I’m going to MAKE this work, no matter what.”
“I’m going to take control of my life.”
Believe me, there’s a HUGE amount of freedom that comes when you’re willing to stand up and take full responsibility for your success.
Once you do, you’ll never look back.
