Are You The Right Candidate For Self-Employment?

Most executives go through a period in their careers where they consider becoming entrepreneurs. For most it appears to be a knee-jerk reaction based on the fear no one will hire them. Self-employment is one option you may consider and it can look pretty darn attractive. the pay can be great, the work exciting and you are always guaranteed to love your boss! But be careful when heading down the entrepreneurial path because it can be lonely and eat you up faster than you realize. to be a true entrepreneur you need an inspiring vision, an unstoppable commitment and enough passion to pull yourself out of the low troughs of business building. Before you make a move towards self-employment consider a personality assessment to determine if you are a good match for the entrepreneurial lifestyle. Plan to meet with many other entrepreneurs to learn about their experiences.

By all means if you are truly heading toward the world of self-employment make sure you are serious. nothing is more damaging than launching into business with half a heart. Franchising is also an excellent self-employment alternative if you have the cash and you are comfortable following an established business process. While you may have to put out more money in the beginning, franchises often generate positive cash flow quicker. Whatever route you choose, do your homework, know the numbers and then by all means jump in with both feet!

SEND OUT CARDS
A company I highly recommend for generating passive income is SENDOUT CARDS.  I believe in the concept of sending cards and their programs are easy, fair and popular.  You can quite quickly create a $500+ monthly revenue stream.  Many do it full-time but there is a definite commitment needed to build your business.  My wife Sharen is a distributor and is happy to speak with you.
