Do you ever find yourself thinking that there is more out there for you? The traditional career path, workplace, and workforce are changing. More and more people are turning towards non-traditional jobs in order to seek greater job and life fulfillment.
Work has changed dramatically over the last few decades, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. It’s become more time-consuming, less stable, and more flexible. In 1973, 6% of Americans said they worked excessive hours; in 2016, 26% said they worked more than 48 hours a week. Insurance coverage by employers has also dropped since 1973, although many companies now provide more benefits to aid work-life balance, such as paid parental leave and remote work options. Businesses are spending less on employees, both in terms of compensation and capital investment, while investors get triple the payout from 30 years ago.
This has all contributed to workers increasingly acting like free agents in the job market; while they have more control and flexibility, the “safety net that once came with full-time work has frayed.” Young people are turning to small business ownership and entrepreneurship to create their own freedom and flexibility.
So, why not make the days count? I started my business and it completely changed my outlook on life. Now, I’m able to create my own work-life balance, I can set my own bar for success, and work when it is best FOR ME. Let me help you find your freedom and create the life you’re dreaming of.
