Time to break free

Times are hard for employees and they have been for a number of years. It’s a difficult decade for the ambitious career-builder, particularly those in the hard-hit public sector. Our jobs become ever more uncertain, yet simultaneously our bosses are piling on the work and stressing us out. Income growth hasn’t been exactly stellar either.

There must be a better way

How do you break free and find a more dependable source of income. A career where you’re less pressured and where the rewards are greater. Maybe it’s time to consider taking on your own business?

Many people think of small or medium business ownership as something that requires a lot of thought, drive and entrepreneurial flare, but it need not. To run your own business you don’t always need that start-up spirit. Businesses often change hands, and existing small and medium-sized businesses come to market to be sold as going concerns quite regularly.

You can buy you into an enterprise to run for your own living. Imagine it. Be your own boss, and leave all that unwanted pressure behind. Of course, running your own business comes with its own pressures, but these are so much less when it’s something you want to do.

What are you waiting for?

Make 2017 the year you break free from the shackles of your thankless drudge. Get your voluntary redundancy pay-off and do something you really want to do. Owning your own business may not make you your fortune, but it stands a better chance of making it than grinding your spirit into the dust in a world of wage freezes and waste-cutting exercises.
