Attract The Right Job Or Clientele: 

Life is topsy turvy during good and not so good times and has many deciding between a job or entrepreneurship. There are always positives and negatives among significant decisions such as this. One almost has to proceed with a gut feeling to move forward, yet it’s best to make a list of pros and cons to check multiple times for reassurance.

More often, we put on our rose-colored glasses as we view the occupations of others. But it’s always best to get the facts up front before making a move that affects our livelihood. For example, a corporate position may sound important and exciting upfront, and it’s reassuring to know that you will receive payment for the work, and benefits will kick in as necessary. But, it’s always best to get an idea upfront about the potential negatives.

We all know that not everyone is paid the same for a similar job posting at the same company. Worse is that some will be treated like sports stars while others may receive disrespect in every aspect. The current sinkhole is that advancement is less likely in most cases for anyone who is not a white male. Accordingly, companies are missing out on a more robust approach to business when they ignore diversity and inclusion. There is always a possibility for a new day when diversity, equity, and inclusion can become a reality, and employees will be more likely to remain for the long term.

Given all these circumstances, the idea of entrepreneurship becomes far more appealing. However, those not familiar with entrepreneurship but who crave independence may be in for a shock once they begin. You may believe you have everything in place, but lots of ‘buts’ occur. On the checklist are:

  • Business plan
  • Unforeseen expenses for business growth
  • Budget
  • Employees full or part-time
  • Premises or home office
  • Documentation
  • Accounting and taxes

My Story

After eleven years and eleven jobs due to discriminatory maneuvers by management, I had enough. I viewed the possibility of building my own business to service clientele. Moreover, since I was a previous observer of competition, I would be comfortable recognizing what works well for others to apply to my business style. 

For the most part, the beginning was smooth and easy. But a move to a new City changed everything for the worst. The question became, do I continue or quit?  

In addition to facing the undesirable events surrounding me, technological change picked up with speed, as did marketing and business strategies. Entrepreneurship became my test for grit and motivation to continue. However, I never looked back at the desire to rejoin the workforce. The other possibility was selecting a hobby and being content with where I was then. But I knew that would be short-lived.

The forewarning is contentment with where we can dictate the need to quit. Entrepreneurship is not an endeavor where being content is realistic. It instead requires forward momentum no matter what or where we are at any given time. Accordingly, it becomes necessary to revisit our budget, expenditures, and new essential investments to continue. It’s vital to review our purpose and passion and persevere with our hearts and minds.

The questions for consideration as an entrepreneur are:

  • Is it possible to pay for the expense of business and make a profit?
  • Are you willing to continue investing in yourself and the company?
  • What will ultimately bring you joy?

In either job or entrepreneurship scenario, we experience the good times and face stress on occasion. We are to dedicate ourselves to continual learning to surpass difficulties.

It’s our job to decide what is best for each of us to move forward without regret.
