The Changing Landscape of the Individual Worker

Job security seems nonexistent these days.  People who have worked at jobs for two weeks or twenty years are being let go.  Maybe during the economic downturn the company took a hard hit and everyone who worked there was forced to look somewhere else for their paycheck.  It is times like these where having more than one avenue to wealth is imperative.  If you are having difficulty finding someone to hire you, then start out by hiring yourself!  In the previous articles, we have reviewed your strengths and weaknesses and what types of businesses suit you.  Now it is time to take action!

I previously spoke about the company that I am an affiliate with SFI (Strong Future International).  After looking over the company information and what it would take the join the company, I felt it was the right choice for me.  If you would like to look at this opportunity, you can check out the information at my site: - - .  In future articles I will speak about what impressed me about the company.

The important factor for you is to look at opportunities and decide what is right for you.  I liked SFI because it was free to join and there was plenty of opportunity to look around the site and really get to know the business.  Have you ever had a friend or family member tell you about this “great opportunity” but they could never really explain the details of it?  They just seemed to be parroting the “party line.”  If you cannot get straight answers from someone regarding any business opportunity they have for you, then steer clear of it.

It seems important currently, to go into business for yourself.  This does not need to be a full-time venture (even though it most certainly can be), but it is a way for you to make money through your own efforts.  You know your strengths, you can find opportunities suited to your strengths, and there are opportunities out there.  SFI is the opportunity that I found.  It was what I was looking for when I was looking to diversify my wealth portfolio.  Again, I will discuss my thoughts on this in future articles.  Right now, we are focusing on you and what kind of future you desire for yourself.  I know that I want to be able to support myself and live the lifestyle I want no matter what the state of the economy is.

There are opportunities out there.  I cannot think of a single time when there will be people who do not need help with something.  You can provide that something!  When you think about it, you can review your strengths and weaknesses with this in mind… your strengths are your assets and your weaknesses are other’s opportunities.  There are things that you will not be the best at or you will find that you do not have the time for.  You will run across people who love doing what you do not and devote their time to perfecting it.  This way you can work on and share your talents and they can work on and share their talents.  The end result will be a mutually beneficial outcome.  How great is that?

Choosing the Business That’s Right for You: Types of Income

Most people who want to start a business are looking to increase their wealth.  There are three types of income that can be made when you are diversifying your wealth.  These types are earned, investment, and passive income.  It would be wise to have a good mix of these to round out your wealth portfolio.

Earned income is exactly as it sounds.  It is money that is earned from actively working.  An example of this is the hourly employee.  This person is paid for the hours they work “on the clock.”  The second type of income is investment income.  An example would be your investment portfolio, where money is made from the sale, interest or dividend that is generated from stocks and bonds.  The final type of income is passive income.  What I mean by passive income is money that is made with minimal sustained effort on your part.  Another word for passive income is residual income.  These types of income can include rent, e-book sales, and some Internet businesses.

Some businesses offer the opportunity for more than one type of income to be earned at the same time.  One such business that has multiple ways to wealth is a company of which I am an affiliate—SFI.  SFI stand for Strong Future International and has been around since 1998.  It began modestly with one product and a limited reach (available only in the United States).  Today there are thousands of products and affiliates working all over the globe.  Over the course of the next articles, I will share what I have learned about this company and what I see for my future and yours, as well.

So join me on this journey, and let’s explore what SFI has to offer—together.

Choosing the Business That’s Right For You: What Are You Good At?

Now you realize that diversity is the key.  Great!  Okay, how do you decide which direction to go?  There are an endless amount of possibilities out there.  The first thing you need to determine is what you are good at.

When people are asked this question, they tend to look at the big ticket items instead of seeing the strengths in the little things they do.  For example, a person might state that they are a good secretary, but they need to take this statement a step further.  What is it about them that makes them a good secretary?  This is when true revelations begin!  It is not that they are a good secretary, but that they are excellent at multi-tasking, organizing events, and keeping the office running smoothly.  Even that last one can be further broken down.  How do they do this?  They make sure that the office is always stocked with supplies, that correspondence is flawless and goes out in a timely manner, and on and on.  So, take a few minutes to reflect on your strengths.  If you are having difficulty with this, then ask your family, friends, or coworkers.  Sometimes they see you more clearly than you do.

Now you have your list of strengths.  Which businesses cater to these strengths?  Also, consider businesses that interest you and match your personality.  Your strengths can match some businesses, but if a business doesn’t match your personality or interest, then it should not be considered.  No reason to waste your time.  Other considerations to keep in mind are your weaknesses and your personal habits.  For example, are you a morning person or late-night person?  Are weekends off-limits for work?  Do you work better by yourself or with others?  Answering these questions, and others that occur to you, will give you a better picture of the types of businesses that may work for you.

I reviewed my strengths and weaknesses and I decided to become an entrepreneur.  I am currently an affiliate of SFI (Strong Future International), but we will talk of this later.  I like being an entrepreneur because I have the freedom to work when I want.  It is true that I cannot take a month off all the time, but if I have a family event coming up, I only need to schedule it in and adjust the business accordingly.  There are no forms to fill out for time off; I am not using sick days, or anything of the sort.  It comes down to prioritizing my time to ensure that family time is scheduled into my work life.

So, what are you good at?

Choosing the Business That’s Right for You: So You Want to Start a Business

The time is right for you.  It is time to begin a new business venture—time to move in a new direction.  You have inspiration and energy, but there is a slight problem.  You are not sure of your direction.  What should your business be?  Where should you start and then what path do you follow?  Which opportunities should you seize and which are better left alone?  I can help you with this.  I can be your guide through this maze, so that you can make your right decision.  Now, before we begin with that, we need to touch on something you may have already heard, but it bears repeating: You need to diversify your life.  What?  You need to diversify your life!

Some individuals follow their family’s example and work in the same business or head along the same career path as everyone else has for generations.  They say, “My father, and his father, and his father’s father all [went in this business direction] so, of course, I will too.”  Other individuals follow their bliss.  You know this because they cannot stop talking about it.  Life is great for them and they can’t see themselves doing anything else.  Then, for both sets of individuals (and many like them) life changes.  The family business goes under, or there are reductions in force at work, or maybe the bliss has worn off.  What do they do now?  This is why diversifying your life is essential to your mental and financial well-being.

By “diversifying your life,”  I mean having more than one way to earn money.  If you enjoy working for a company, that is fine.  Make sure you are doing something else besides that.  You should be doing at least two, maybe more, things in addition to your company job.  Why is this important?  Refer to the above example.  If you have more than one income avenue, when there are reductions or the business goes under, you will not be in a panic, wondering how you’ll survive.  You will have other income options.  You will only need to look into ways to fill that gap.  A better alternative to complete devastation and wondering how you will survive from week to week.  Having other avenues of wealth will give you the time to figure out how to fill that gap.  With panic can come rash decisions, and then you feel stuck with the decisions that you made.  Having options gives you the opportunity to try things out and then, if you find that that opportunity was a poor fit, you can change without having a big disruption to your income.

Am I saying you need the equivalent of three full time jobs?  No!  You can set up your wealth avenues however you wish.  Just make sure you put some thought into it.  Now, let’s figure out which wealth avenues to create…
