Recession - Are We There?
Recession - Are We There? Recession, it sounds like a dirty word doesn't it? Well unfortunately, it is becoming a reality for the US economy. So what, if any impact will this have on you?
The majority of people worry that they may be laid off from their job, that inflation will take hold, or that they will be forced out of their home due to lack of funds. These are all legitimate concerns. So what are you going to do about it?
These are just a few of the options that you might be considering.
Option #1 - More Education
You might be thinking that more education or an advanced degree will secure your position at work or increase your paycheck. However, this will require extra hours away from your family with no guarantee of job security or pay increase.
Option #2 - Another Job
Another option would be to get a part time job to supplement your income. However, once again this will take time away from your family and could leave you feeling exhausted and less productive at your full time job.
Option #3 - Start A Business
You could choose to start your own brick and mortar business. Unfortunately, this often requires high start up costs and being married to the business. When you add in things such as overhead, employees, and insurance, the headaches are never ending. That doesn't even include the fact that 4 out of 5 small businesses will fail within their first 5 years in business.
Option #4 - Real Estate
Real estate investing is another option. House flipping has become a popular side job. However, in a decreased economy, you could be sitting on a property for months. Unless you can afford to ride out the market, it might not be such a great option.
Option #5 - Internet Marketing
This is where it starts to get good. There are more millionaires being created online than with any other venue. Thanks to low start up costs, decreased risk, and no overhead or employees, internet marketing is quickly becoming a phenomenon. Best of all, you get to work from home and have a 10 second commute.
Even in times of economic instability, the online world is buzzing. That is because so many people are looking to the online industry as a source for earning additional income.
It is strongly advisable for you to take some time and research this growing trend. What some have been able to do offline with their home based businesses is multiplied exponentially online.
