In today's economy, job security is at an all time low. Many families struggle to provide their day to day needs, living paycheck to paycheck. Although it is not a solution to everything, have you considered starting your own business. Proverbs says, "Shrewd is the one that has seen the calamity and proceeds to conceal himself, but the inexperienced have passed along and must suffer the penalty." (Proverbs 22:3) Are you prepared in the event of a sudden job loss? A good back up plan is to consider starting your own business. Please note, I am not recommending that anyone quit their job in order to start their own business; but rather, be prepared in the event that your company turns sour. In my past, I have been foolish enough to quit my job without fully making sure that my business was self sustaining and I suffered greatly for that false step. Yet, I learned a valuable lesson and you can learn from it too. First, consider what skills could be used to provide some special service in your community. You can start off by using those skills to benefit friends and family, and in the long run: they may refer you to others. Everyone has something that they do uniquely well, so I encourage you to look within yourself and figure out what that is. Pray about it, and you may be surprised at what you find.
