In the 80’s, the economy was such that many white collar executives were being laid off from their jobs. A syndicated talk show host interviewed several of them asking them what they were going to do. Many responded that they were going to turn their hobbies into a business for awhile until they found other employment. After 5 years, the talk show host contacted them again to see what had happened. He found that many now owned their own businesses doing something they loved and getting paid for it! They all told him that they had never been happier!
The unstable economy is causing many companies to downsize, lay off employees, or close altogether. This leaves many out of work and wondering what to do now. Wisdom would say to find employment in something that is necessary, no matter what the economy is doing. Dreams would say to find something to do that you love. Why not do both?
Are you someone who likes to tinker and fix things? Do you tear things apart to fix them instead of trashing and replacing them? Have you always been interested in how things work? Why not turn something you are interested in into a vocation? No matter how bad the economy gets, there will always be a need for appliance technicians. If you can fix appliances well, there will be no shortage of appreciative customers. Just ask your mother! There is nothing more frustrating than when an appliance breaks down. You will never be unwelcome at the home of an appliance in need of repair!
There are many advantages to owning your own business. Yes, it is a lot of work to get started but once you are established, then you become in charge of how much or how little you work, when you work, and how much you will make for your services. You can expand your company any direction that you please, remaining a general technician or specializing in an area that especially interests you. You can grow your company, employing others or keep it small, employing only yourself.
