As a laid off employee of AT&T, I know exactly what the Verizon workers are going through as their layoff process continues. The large telecommunications providers are losing so much money on their old bread and butter, residential service. People have moved away from the traditional land lines and are using cell phones as their primary numbers today. As the layoffs continue and more families are affected, now may be the time to start your own enterprise using the talents and skills learned at Verizon.
The theme of the new decade will be to retool, reinvent, and refocus yourself not on a career anymore with a company but on educating yourself and not putting a limit of what you can earn. This will be done out of sheer necessity as more and more Americans see that the government is not equipped to save their families or the economy. As dire as this may sound, it actually may be a blessing in disguise.
If you had what it took to work at a company like Verizon then you have what it takes to use those same job skills and market them for yourself. This of course will require some education on your part in marketing. It is absolutely possible to earn enough money in your own enterprise using existing talents to maintain and improve your current lifestyle.
Everyone that has been laid off from Verizon won’t have the entrepreneurial spirit of starting their own business. But as jobs continue to get more difficult to find, the internet may be a tool you can use to overcome the obstacle many fear. Using the internet you can do research and gain knowledge virtually for free on what you can offer to the world community.
We’re now at a point in this recession where our minds have to be open to newer ways of generating income for the household. If you can come terms with this philosophy these next few years may be the best of your life. Here are a few tips to help you process the idea:
Determine what skills you have
Use the internet to research if there is a market for those skills
Educate yourself on how to market
All those who are coming online to market are not there to make millions. Most people are just trying to make ends meet. A $200-$500 additional income per month into the home may be the difference between staying in the home and foreclosure.
Try to leverage the skills you have to protect what you have worked so hard during your career. Understand it will be you that bails your family out and not the government. Stop stressing over money and learn to market online using a proven marketing strategy here today.
I’m Val Taylor and I am on a mission to teach as many as I can reach the power of marketing YOU INC! Discover a way to use the talents and skills you’ve acquired at Verizon and create a successful online home business today in spite of a Verizon layoff.
