Jobless Worries - Turn to the Internet

By Ian Fernando

Today was a sad day at my company, many of my friends and employees were laid off. Fortunate for me I am one of the survivors. This puts my mind to full gear when I say I am dedicated to succeed on the internet. This is a scary thought of mine, being laid off and unable to support myself or JUST get by with the income I produce from my internet business and marketing. I would like to be free once I am stable on the internet as for now seeing my friends and employees I knew for so many years and just to shake hands and say good bye is a hard thing to do.

I was reading an article from yahoo stating:

The Labor Department reported Thursday that applications for jobless benefits totaled 342,000 last week, up 19,000 from the previous week.

 Again, I have set a goal for myself and I will accomplish those goals incase situations like these happen to me. Internet Marketing is a great type of business, you reach so many potential customers. Since everything is being digitized today a lot more people tend to purchase items on the internet more so than going to their local shops.

It is the dream of most employees to one day work for themselves and own a home based business. This is the ideal business to start as it does not take as much capital as a conventional business does. You do no have to hire premises and much staff to help you in the beginning stages.

Before embarking on such a venture first investigate the market, and see where there is a gap that you can fill. Do market research and make sure that you will have a place in the market for whatever it is that you want to do. It is no good starting something that will not make money for you. Give your plans a lot of thought and make a list of what you want from the business and what you want to put into the business.

People are leaving their jobs with companies to start working on their own so that they can gain control over their lives. So many employees get laid off that it is safer to be working for yourself and you know that you can rely on yourself.

Relying on yourself puts you more into a position of making sure you reach your goals! You are relying on yourself to be successful, to be more focus than others, doing more research then the other person; you are your own boss that leads your financial freedom.

Many people?s hobbies have turned into lucrative businesses. If you have the talent for making something well that can be sold on the local market you do not have to look any further for something to do. Do your market research and secure a market before you start your business. This will tell you how well your product will sell on the local market. Turning your love for something into a business is great because you know you are good at it and can support others on the internet, rather someone that hates your specific field.

With an internet marketing business, your lifestyle determines when you will work on your Internet Marketing Business, what days you will work, what hours you want to work. And you are never laid off, since its your business and your dream!
