A job like a relationship can end. Todays world allows those with capital many options to gain profit or rewards, there was a time when industry built around mass people employment attracted capital because of the social and economic benefit. Today large-scale employment is more complex, with labour demanding more the cost and return on invest changes and sometimes is not attractive as other options available to capital.
Start developing your niche while working at your job as to ease your transition which will place you in a stronger personal place. At http://www.good.is/members/peter-dopson I have started writing what will be the community of self-employed, when possible stop by it is to allow others to help each other by utilizing each persons skill set and knowledge, to assist building individual self-employment services into a larger community for financial,emotional and total business support.
We get there and do what we believe is a great job and expect all will be, and change will happen when we are ready. Surprise. In the past when community worked with industry to foster the growth of the town and small business, the thinking was as one will prosper all will. Move ahead to today and it is I have mine, you go get yours, if you want some of mine, I will take it and leave. What happened ? Many answers to pick from and still no answer to solve the problem.
I believe we have to start rebuilding with more love for ourself and others. We start by creating the next era of products with concern for community as we decide on a manufacturing location, the effects on the planet, and the value of the product and related services, while taking into consideration a living income. This does not mean we are not part of the free market or of a non capitalist belief, this just means we want to earn as to live and retire to a bed at night and rise the next day to food and air that is not slowly killing us.
Capital is King. The present system serves some well and as such will continue to do so. The growth in Crowd Funding brings back the opportunity of community CO-OP finance and gives us a chance to untie ourselves from the guide rope of dead-end jobs. We educate our children as to better the growth of a prosperous society, not to have them bow out and settle for what is. As I mentioned before CrowdFunding can play a major role in the Future of building new industry and put our great children onto the path vision they see for their future jobs and families.
I have worked on projects that employed Crowd Funding to raise capital, what we experienced is that the banks don’t need to invest in small business or industries in start-up or expansion. The banks can make money overnight with little or no risk and provide for the people they serve, this does not mean that banks are not caring, we must understand they are a business driven by profit and power, not help and hugs.!
