You hear all the time right now about unemployment. People are going through layoffs, downsizings and rightsizings as companies seek to find a way through the current economy, or give up entirely and close their doors.
On the other hand, if you travel in small business / entrepreneurial circles, you hear people talk about being unemployable. I’m not talking about people who have no skills and no ambition. These are bright people with a lot of skills. So why are they unemployable?
Because they choose to be. They are of the mindset that they cannot work for someone else because they have chosen their own course, taken responsibility for their own results, and will not allow any external agency to set limits on what they can accomplish or how much money they can make.
I learned about being unemployable when I quit my job to work full-time to build my network marketing business. I could never go back to a job where someone else tells me what to do all day. As an independent network marketer I get to set my own schedule and work around the things that are important to me, like my family.
It takes a lot of dedication and you have to be self-motivated to stick to the course and do the things that need to be done. If you have that then there are no limits to what you can do.
So, what are you going to do?
How I became unemployable.
