The world is going through some economical difficulties and has been for quite some time now. Hard working family providers are having their nightmares come true when they receive the dreaded “You’ve Been Laid Off” notice. All of a sudden they have Nothing. Their world goes up side down and they don’t know what to do to put food on the table.
Latest news has it that another 1500 workers in Wisconsin will be laid off due to some political issues. What will happen to these families? How many of these families have a back up plan they can live on once out of work?
For some this may turn out to be the best news ever. Those who have plans to start their own business or explore new things will take the opportunity to learn new things and grow. But probably most of these 1500 are not doing the happy dance right now but instead only seeing a dark troubled time ahead.
A few years ago I read something that changed my whole perspective on how we live our lives. Right now this post fees very timely- It is called “Why We Are Broke And How To Fix It” by Naomi Dunford from IttyBiz. Please do go read it and come back here.
Now tell me: how does this reflect on you and your life? How are you diversifying your life and your business? How are you spending your time? Are you preparing for change so you are ready for it when it comes?
If you have a business you may think this does not apply to you, but it does. Are you making the most out of your business? Are you ensuring you have a back up when needed and IF need? Are you constantly waiting for something to happen or are you actively working towards a better tomorrow?
Don’t wait – prepare yourself.
