Despite falling jobless rate, many still anxious about financial security
In a New Times article by Patricia Cohen she tells the story of what is happening to many employees in today's business environment. Employees are finding the number of hours they work is swinging giddily from week to week. This is bringing chaos not only to family scheduling, but also to family finances. And a new wave of research shows that the main culprit is not the so-called gig economy, but shifting pay within the same job.
Steady work that pays a predictable and living wage has become increasingly difficult to find for moderate income households. Instability and insecurity are increasingly a part of middle class life.
But even high paying executive positions do not have job security. Buy outs, mergers, and company policies keep changing. Quite often a promotion comes with more responsibility resulting in more time commitment at work and less free time to be with family.
If you want freedom, and control of your time and income, you need to make a big change in thinking. You cannot think like an employee, think like a business owner. Invest in yourself, find the mentors who already have the success you dream of and that are willing to teach you what they have learned from experience. Be open to change, getting out of your comfort zone and develop a determination to learn and work until you succeed.
