engaging in a business is not as easy as it may seem even if you have the resources to put up. i have a business and also i am employed in a company. doing both is no easy job. businesses should be taken into great consideration since you put it up, all your efforts are there; time, and the money. my question is why is that you tend to resign to work job? aren't you happy? or the job doesn't suits your personality?

Sit down and write a list about what you enjoy doing. This will help get you going to start. Even little things like playing cards, reading, what ever it is, write it down. Do you like to work with kids? Maybe you should check with your local school district see if there are any assistant positions available, assistance usually get to work with all different grade levels. The pay isn't much, but you reap benefits in other ways, for example helping children to learn, meeting new people, learning something yourself. Do you have a particular skill you would like to learn? Maybe you ought to think about going to college, learn a new trade, one that interests you. Then look into finding a job in that profession. Sometimes, while going to school you can find internships and learn as you go. For your other interests, check the newspaper, see if there are any listings with similarities in work, who knows maybe you can become a book reviewer, get to sit read books then write reviews all day long.

Nobody can help you if you can't help yourself. :) Because we're not you. Your husband is not you. You need to ask yourself few questions actually. Are you desperate for money? Do you rather work for money or work for something which you are passionate about? What do you really want in life? Easy life? Sense of satisfaction? Enough money to cope with recession? Do you like to work from home? Do you like to talk to people? What about clients? And if you are planning to start your own business, ask yourself some questions such as why do you want to have your own business? Is it so that you can be your own boss? So that you can do what you love most? So that you don't have to follow orders from other people? So that you can have flexible working time? And what kind of things do you think you can do for your business? Sell products? Provide services? Do you have enough fund to start a business? Can you last for 6 months if your business is poor? There are some of the questions you need to ask. Pretty important questions but questions which you must ask if you are thinking of being an entrepreneur. I know it's not easy. A lot of people have made the mistake by thinking that by being their own boss, they will gain freedom. Wrong. By being your own boss, you have more commitments because you cannot run away from your business. If you are working for someone, you can resign from the job but if you are working for yourself, you can't because that's your money you are talking about. The money, time and all the efforts you have put it in starting that business of yours. Those are some of the things that you ought to remember. Hope it helps. :)

..hi.. try considering this.. if you are a regular employee, you could earn a living that could sustain you monthly.. however, it would be very hard to save because your money is budgeted only for the whole month.. however, if you are in a business, you could plan how your money will increase.. you see, if you are an employee, you could get short with your budget and you need to have a loan to pay for your past debts, while in business, you loan money to have an investment.. later, that money will grow and you won't need to loan anymore.. I am a regular employee, however, if i could be able to raise money, i'll establish my own business.. but you should also remember that there are many things to consider in business especially how your money is being utilized.. see to it that you establish a business which can relate to the people around you and your products or services should be the ones that are in demand in the community so that you are sure that your business will grow..
