After years of service you have finally arrived at “the place”. “The place” is that object of desire you wanted to achieve after you proved yourself to be a valued employee. You dedicated countless hours, staying countless late nights, hosting countless meetings and entertained countless clients. You did it all. “The place” is also where your fellow colleagues have striven and strained to be. Your superiors, without a doubt, made the right choice by employing you. After all, you were their “go to guy.” And for all your hard labor, they finally granted you a permanent residence in “the place”: the coveted corner office along with a salary to match.
There was only one thing that was missing: happiness.
Happiness? That disappeared years ago when you, with your all-consuming work schedule, missed spending time with your family: i.e., the kids sporting events, interruptions while on vacations, the excessive amount of time spent in traffic – just to get to your coveted corner office. Your countless hours; your slaving away during countless late nights; your hosting countless meetings; your entertaining the countless clients.
But wait! You have just received the memo that your organization is now downsizing due to the collapse in the financial system. You only have one question to ask yourself: Was it all worth it? Will you too be the next casualty of your organization’s “reorganization” and “reprioritization”? The thought of it is fear-provoking. “Employment security” is a concept that no longer occupies your reality.
You soon have an epiphany, however, and discover that there is a “light at the end of the tunnel”. That “light” is the possibility of self employment. Being self employed, you come to realize, is the only true form of independence, not to mention self worth. As you slowly being to embrace the various available opportunities that allow you to be gainfully self-established, the desire of working from home intensifies. What could be more gratifying than building a secure financial profile from the comfort of your own abode? Or spending more time with your family? Or freeing up your time resources to pursue other activities and dreams which you previously had no time for? You develop a very clear image in your mind: no more incalculable hours spent at the office; no more rush hour traffic; no more adjusting your personality to fit the ‘corporate culture’; no more adherence to somebody else’s agenda. Just having meaningful time with your loved ones finalizes your decision to want to make the change. You decide to make that change now.
With the help of the internet, you soon discover that there are an extensive number of home based business opportunities available. Through your due diligence and research, you also identify the various industries that fit your interests, talents and personality so that you can feel completely confident that you will reach your financial aspirations. You soon realize that the journey begins with you. Your passage can start right now. And you never forget the most rewarding part about this journey: it can all be accomplished from your home. The best corner office a person can have.
