deedeehall, don't despair. I'm sure there are other ways to earn money than the one you are currently doing. Some people work two or more jobs to be able to save more. You just have to be patient. If you don't enjoy your job, then you can probably look for a sideline that you DO enjoy, and one you can also make money from, until the time comes when you can concentrate on that one thing that you enjoy doing. Have you also tried borrowing from friends and relatives? This is how most small businesses start before they grow. Just be sure that you pay them back as soon as possible when your business picks up.

Yes, I have one job also but I do have sideline. My current salary is not enough and I like to earn more by doing sideline jobs. I do want to start my business alone and establish my sideline jobs but it does need more study about the business you want to have before spending the money for it. It really needs to be careful about it. Well that is my opinion anyway. Happy Mylotting.

Hang in there if you really want your own business! These days though a business endeavor is risky with the economy like it is. Maybe there is a reason it hasn't worked out for you just yet. Having have had two different businesses in our household before, it is not always all it is cut out to be. Sometimes you can be harder on yourself than a boss is! THere is alot of stress to cover overhead and make a consistent salary, to have to buy your own insurance and things like that. So many people get this idea that when you have your own business you are rich (not usually the case- you are usually in debt for awhile) and they will try to get you to buy everything under the sun!! You have to have very good self control to stay in business and then it is not always a guarantee it will work out to be a success! Good luck!

You have an entrepreneur spirit. And that's good news! God gave you a talents and you must use it now. To be an entrepreneur, you must know your interest, talent and capacity. Then, set a goal, when setting a goal, make it clear and indicate time table. Make your dream come true thru baby step. Don't push yourself too much! But you must love your present job....save a bit of your earning. Make a small business like, if you want to put on a boutique, start small by selling clothes to your office mate---direct selling. Later, you'll have regular costumer and your saving will accumulate.

Hi deedeehall! Poor thing, I know how you feel,doing something that you don't really enjoy. Don't be stressed too much about it, just relax so that you'll get your motivation back. Just be patient! When the right time comes, you'll get relieved. At the moment just try hard to enjoy your job and let your mind of getting your own business keep you motivated. Good luck!
