Sadly, most people put their hopes and dreams on hold in return for a job. They squander their life by “renting” it to their employer. They trade 8 to 10 hours of their lives each working day for a few thousand a month. They spend their lives making someone else rich. They work for their employer’s best interests, rather than their own. They can’t have goals because they have no way of achieving them. So they just have daydreams about the house they’d like to live in, the car they’d like to drive, the holidays they’d like to have, etc, but they will never earn enough to achieve them.
To earn real money and have the quality of life you desire you need to have your own business. Your daydreams can then become your goals because you are then in control of your life.
But there are many risks involved in setting up your own business. Most conventional businesses involve some investment of capital to get them started (to buy equipment, stock, etc) and high on-going costs such as renting a commercial property (a shop or office), advertising, staff costs, etc. Lack of cash-flow to pay these bills causes many businesses to fail before they get a chance to succeed.
Most people are not prepared to take these risks. They perceive their employment as risk-free. But, unfortunately, in the current troubled economic climate, it is becoming more and more apparent that relying on someone else to provide you with a job is far from risk free. We are in the midst of a deep and worsening global economic recession. Every day the news informs us that more and more businesses are going bust and more and more people are sadly losing their jobs.
But in these times of economic doom and gloom, the GOOD NEWS is that it is now much easier and less risky for you to set up and run your own business. So you can control your own destiny rather than being at the mercy of the economy. There are two reasons why it is now much easier and less risky for you to set up and run your own business.
The first reason is the INTERNET which enables anyone to set up their “shop” (website) for very little cost. You don’t need to pay for a physical office or shop. Your market is not restricted to just those people in your local community who happen to walk past your shop. You can sell products or services to the whole online world. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you live.
BUT you need technical knowledge to be able to set up a commercial website that is capable of processing customer orders (or you need to pay someone a lot of money to do it for you). And if you don’t get any traffic (visitors) to your website you won’t make any sales, no matter how good your website is. And as the internet expands and develops, getting traffic to your site is becoming more and more complicated and expensive to achieve.
So the second reason why it is now much easier and less risky for anyone to set up and run their own business is eBay. eBay provides you with a ready-made commercial website – so you don’t need the technical knowledge to set one up from scratch (or pay someone thousands to do it for you). eBay is also one of the most visited websites on the internet and ranks high in the search engine results.
So eBay removes the two main problems of starting up an internet business by providing you with a ready-made commercial website and as much traffic as you will ever need. So you can set up your own business on eBay today, take control of your destiny, and avoid being a victim of this recession … or the next … or the one after that.
