Is it more expensive to start a JOB or a Business?

Is it more expensive to start a JOB or a Business?

What's Holding You Back?

I connected with a lady on the phone today and she shared with me that she had a goal to be earning a 7 figure income within the next two years. She was full of life, could articulate clearly why she wanted to earn such an income, was a people person, a real go getter! She shared with me that she definitely wanted to go into business for herself and create a better life for herself and her family. BUT….she didn’t want to invest any money into a business.

It got me thinking about the attitude that one must have in which to depart from the masses and take the leap from working a JOB (just over broke) to becoming financially independent working for yourself. Interestingly enough it took me back to my very first experience in the corporate world. At the age of 24 years old I landed a job as a receptionist for one of the worlds largest Pharmaceutical companies. Prior to that time all I had done was waitressing and bar work.

The first thing that I had to change from waitress to corporate receptionist was my appearance. The black and white’s just weren’t going to cut it in my new fancy receptionist gig. Nor were my cut off jeans or bikini’s! So I hit the store to purchase a new, more appropriate look. Five new outfits and $1,500 later I was all set. So my $32,000 a year JOB cost me $1,500 to get started! Interesting isn’t it?

One of the reasons that I love the network marketing industry is because the average person has the opportunity to start a business for around the same amount that it cost me to get started in my first corporate job. I got started in this industry 8 years ago. I had never been in business before. I didn’t have a degree. I didn’t have any specialised skills or qualifications, yet I went on to become a self made millionaire.

For things to change, we have to change. In order for us to change, we have to begin to look at life through a new set of eyes. If I had shared the above story with the lady that I spoke with earlier today I wonder if she would start to think differently in which to get the result she said she wanted?

How much have you spent to work in a JOB?
