Hope you all are remaining happy and healthy through out this thing.
Is it me or does it seem like the Coronavirus is the only thing that seems to be the topic for everyone these days? Don’t misunderstand me, I am fearful of it too. But there are way more things to be concerned about than this virus. How about the fact that there are going to be millions upon millions of people out of work once this thing blows over? There are so many people who are worried about how they are going to keep a roof over their head when those bills come. For some this has already begun to happen.
I myself won’t have to worry about that because I am a salary employee, so no matter what I still get paid even if I don’t attend work. For other people though this isn’t the case; if they don’t work they don’t get paid. I’m sure many business owners are concerned with the profit their business or business’ are bringing in, but just incase they forget there are people who work with and for your business that aren’t profiting nearly as much as you. I just ask that you be a little more compassionate when making your hiring and firing decisions.
Unlike the 1%ers most people don’t have the time nor luxury of being in between work. I understand you may have some who may not take work or your company seriously, so they won’t work at the capacity they should. Therefore you have to make that dreaded decision to let them go. But what about those who have been with the company for years and have broken their backs to make sure their shows how much they appreciate their job?
Recently my mother’s mother in law got laid off from a job she had been working for close to 30yrs. I couldn’t believe it. She was really close to retirement. I have my own thoughts on that whole situation.
I can’t stand when the rich continue to get richer and the poor get poorer. I know there have been plenty of entrepreneurs who have begun to emerge through the years because things are not as hard as they use to be. But what about those who aren’t business savvy or have a freethinkers mindset? What are they suppose to do? For example a couple years back I told a woman I wanted to get a job online. She looked at me like I hade three heads. Even though I explained to her why, she still couldn’t understand it. I’m sure it was because she was an older woman close to retirement. Also I’m sure in her day they didn’t have that option, they had to work regardless if they were sick or whatever the case. They had to prove their worth. We’re lucky that it isn’t as hard as back than.
The other thing is some people have a hustler/ entrepreneurs mentality and others don’t. Should we continue to punish the ones who don’t or leave them alone, let them live their life and wait on that 401k?
I know it’s been a little while since I have written something, other than parts for DESIRE. But recently I’ve been consumed with trying to get this book ready and a couple of other things, that come with life.
I’m sure becoming a best selling author will happen for me. I just have to be okay with the amount of time it may take for me to get there. One things for sure, if you don’t have people in the public eye or someone that everyone knows and loves, it’s going to be next to impossible to get anything done without posting a video or being in some kind of scandal. I don’t plan on doing any of those things; but I guess you could say I’m a little impatient because I at least expected to get one book sell today. Doesn’t help that something I’m extremely excited about is being basically ignored by my boyfriend. The good thing is my mom was happy for me, and in turn that made me happy; until his negative energy rubbed of on me.
Also, since I’ve been working on getting this book out, I’ve taken a partial vacation that he doesn’t agree with. I understand he expects me to go to work. But I really hope he doesn’t believe a conventional job is something I plan on keeping. If he does, he’s in for a rude awakening. One thing for sure and two things for certain, once I make a name for myself as an author and I start to make the money necessary to live the life of my dreams; I’m going to dabble in other things. I promise you, I’m not going to stop at only writing, because there is so much more I want to do.
I excepted a long time ago that I don’t think like the average person my age or older. Most of them believe the only way to make it is through having a degree or finding a job that gives 401k and benefits. I want to be the one who creates my own benefits. Why should I feel like I have to work for someone to survive? It’s called life for a reason. Every time you allow work to take a whole day from you, you’re not living; you are merely surviving. Think about all the times you said no to doing something because of work and the “security” it brings. I put security in quotations marks because job security is an illusion. That’s something they get us to believe in, until they have no use for you anymore. I know you may not want to believe it, but that’s true about a lot of companies. Companies back in the day probably kept people on because they felt a sense of loyalty to their employees; but these days many employers don’t even know your name. Many of them only know you through your employee number or from your work ethic. Owners, sometime all the way down to your managers, don’t care about getting to know you. Most are only interested in your ability to complete the job.
That’s why I do and will always encourage anyone that has dreams of being their own boss, because that’s where the freedom is. After all that’s all most of us want anyway.
