some people say...am sad if i lost my job...why?because they dont have any other source of income...they are the bread winner in their family,dont know how to make business..a lot of reasons...if that is so, why not start learning a small business or make a sideline legal only, for the time you will lost your job, you are ready to face the world..remember we did not owned the company we are working with,we are not in control, what if,by tomorrow the company will expire you and your not prepared, what will you do? so,as early as now, start looking for a good extra income..that will help you in the near future...

I agree with you however you have to have money to start your own business and the online businesses are usually full of BS if you know what I mean. So,do you have an answer as to just how one becomes his / her own employee? I mean, I don't like not having a job at the moment and the rent is due. Looking for some answers as to how to make money from home without having to stick over 200 dollars of grocery money into thing that will go no where.

i've experienced it too, but that was before, before when i have lot of business of my own without God's guidance and blessings, though we gained but its just enough for the bills, rents and etc...but now,i have my own business and it's God's gift to us, because we asked this business before we joined...now, our traditional business was gone because of our manpower, they cheated us...and GOD replaces the Best...this is now our bread and butter..I will give you an idea of the business that helped us so much..the company is FIRST VITA PLUS...a natural healthy drink that can cure a lot of diseases even cancers...i helped the sicked people,sicked in health and sicked in wallet..if you want to know how,i can teach you...my capital was just small, but you gain big..im sharing this to you, so that you will be hassle free.i do this sideline,but this sideline makes more money than my job..

Hi. I agree with you. I used to be a full time employee. But my parents-in-law encouraged me to get out of employment the soonest possible time. According to them, I should start running my own business instead of just helping my employer amass more wealth.

that's true!!! having and owning a business is the best! no boss, you have your own time..in working you only have minimum income while in business, its all up to you to earn more while sleeping..

I have to say no I do not. I am planning to save up so I can start my own business already. I am so fed up trying to go with the rules of the companies that changes ever so often and are unfair most of the time. I have been working for almost 5 years and I have got to say that it is so tiring to be under people who are unjust. Thus, I pledged to myself to work hard and earn money in order to achieve my goal for this coming 2010.

I agree with you. It makes sense to start off as an employee to earn some money and gain experience, but it's better to aspire to become an owner and take control of your life. Even if you are only an owner indirectly in the form of stock, that's better than just being a pure employee. An employee works and eats on the whim of the employer...an owner, on the other hand, gets paid as long as the business is getting paid. You can be too sick to work, and still get paid! No employee can say that.
