Help I need a JOB?
Last month I was able to find out that there are a lot of people working as Employment Specialist who are having a difficult time finding jobs for people. The barriers are very real but not so big they can not be overcome. So what do you do? How do you make sure you do not find your self in that long line of unemployed, under-employed millions that are having trouble finding jobs? The answer is create a job or make money! Ok here’s what I mean you can Shift your Focus from looking for a job to looking for work!
Work is something you bring to the table. Something you DO!
What is your Gift, Talent and Abilities? The System that casues your poverty can not empower you. Yes you can make a dollar here and there but if you don’t have a job that pays over $40 grand or $60 in some places you are working in the poverty line anyway. So here’s something to consider: as a trainer I was conducting a workforce development course and I used this example…
Job Vs Service to Many; Job Vs Products for Thousands; Job Vs CashFlow Entities; Job Vs Multiple Streams of Income; a Job Vs Profits… not Wages. What are you able to do very well without thinking too much? What can you do that people will pay you to do (honest not anything illegal or immoral) or pay you for? Do you have an idea that is still swimming in your head and you know it should be put to use on earth?
Farrah Gray was one of those people who made that leap when he was only 7 years old! That’s right he was 7 walking around with a briefcase instead of a lunch box… by the time he was 14 years old he was a millionaire! He had guidance, he had others around him to help but it was his idea. The world was waiting and when he birthed the idea, people paid him for it. Now I am not a millionaire but the principles work regardless. The reality is what do you have on the Canvas of your imagination?
