The “Back Story”
I’ve been a business owner and self-employed for most of my life. I was never one to wait around for someone else to give me a job, I always created my own and often times created jobs for others in the process. As life goes on seasons change in a person’s life and at the age of fifty I found myself uprooted from my life of twenty-five years and transported to a different place and an entirely different life from the one I had grown accustomed.
In the process I found myself for the first time in a very long time working for others. I eventually took a job as a manager for a small but nationwide corporation, little did I know that I was in for a rude awakening! In just a little over two and a half years I had risen as far as I could at the location I worked at, and relocation was not an option.
Before I knew what hit me I was terminated and replaced with an employee less than half my age and literally zero experience in the industry we were employed in and of course they paid the new guy less than half my salary. I was squeezed out for corporate greed, the bottom line had to be improved in lean times and I was the low-hanging fruit!
To add insult to injury, despite having over twenty years experience in my industry I couldn’t even get a face to face interview with another company, over qualified, will leave as soon as something better comes along, needs too much money, blah, blah, blah! That was it, the final straw! I realized that being fifty plus years old made me undesirable in the new corporate world that values “lean processes” over experience. I decided, never again would I leave my finances and security in the hands of another so I returned to what I was always successful at in the past being a business owner and entrepreneur.
I’ve learned that more so now than ever the internet and e-commerce is the emerging global market for business owners. Brick and mortar businesses that don’t also develop a robust online presence and internet revenue stream will not survive the coming tide of three plus billion consumers all turning to the internet to purchase goods and services.
Why I Want To Help Others
I want to help others because I know what it feels like to have the rug yanked out from beneath you without warning, concern or compassion. In my research and efforts to get rehired in my industry I discovered that corporate culture in general has deteriorated over the last decade or so.
The most valuable assets to a company, the people and their experience are no longer appreciated, only the bottom line in the short term. I discovered that there were many people like myself, particularly in my age bracket that were struggling with staying employed, it is the new reality and there isn’t any apparent change in that culture on the horizon.
I also discovered though that there are great opportunities for those that have the drive to build their own business online. The possibilities are nearly endless and it is a sustainable business model that you never have to retire from, can develop great revenue, and can actually give a person more freedom than they had probably ever experienced in their working life. It is the opportunity to build something that a person can pass on to their loved ones that can improve their quality of life as well. Online businesses are real and they can be very profitable!
