TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE: BOTH ARE NEEDED IN AMERICA

“Get it how you get it.”


NO MORE ONE JOBS

Remember the good old days of how the man would go to work and the wife would stay at home. But the times have seriously changed and that is no longer an option. She need to be working just like her husband is working. The country’s wealth is growing, but the wealth gap is increasing. And this simply means that the few people who are rich are getting richer. So the poor people are getting poorer and the middle is diminishing. That means more poor because the middle is not climbing. So what about the people who still want to live off of one income? You know what I say, more power to you. Because I could not see myself doing it, but that is where I am at now in life.

LIVING ON ONE

What was the norm in the past is something that is odd in today’s society. If you have a stay at home mom today, then you are what the 1950’s kids were in the past. Kids are shocked to see kids with stay at home parents today. But this can also be scary at the same time. And the reason being that so many jobs are unguaranteed. So if you lose your job, then your household could be in disarray. It’s always best to have more than one. This way, you can have something to fall back on. Otherwise your back is up against the wall.

FOR THE FEW WHO CAN

Now, there are those few people who can afford to live on income. And that is fine as long as the person making the living have a high enough income for survival. Now, on the other hand, you might see yourself as bored if you don’t have anything going on. Because the times have changed for the wife at home. So you will be quite bored since so many people work. What are you to do with no work? Even if you have kids, they spend time at school. So know what you’re getting yourself into.

WORKING WITH FAMILY: SHOULD YOU WORK WITH RELATIVES

“Know what you’re doing.”


family first

Now, you may all may think that it could be a great idea to hire your family or work with family. Now, this can be a serious problem or the greatest thing to ever happen. You have to make sure that everyone is one the right page when working together. Make sure the business comes first when you are with family even friends. So if that is all on the up and up then you could see yourselves being very successful in business because since family is involved you already have the trust in place. But there are those times where this can be pretty dicey depending on how your relationship can go with your family.

way too comfortable

When you work with people that you are cool with, it can be too much comfort to where business could lack. You don’t want to see yourself in a position where people are not attentive because they feel like they are working for family. They may also be more prompted to talk back to you where they would never do anything like it when working for someone else. So make sure they know you are their employer or that you guys are good business associates working together.

i won’t say do or don’t

I can’t say it is a bad or good idea. It will be something you have to figure out on your own. I can’t tell you who to hire or who to work for in life. This is tough especially considering you want to make money with someone you trust. You want to be in a pleasant environment, and who more than family. So as time progress you will see who you can depend on and who you can’t when it comes to work. Initially you can’t see it, but time will tell. Hopefully things work themselves out because them again, these are people you have to see and deal with outside of work.

WAKE UP AND WORK: STAYING HOME AND WORKING

“In the comforts of your home.”


from home

Most people think that working from home is going to be this relaxed environment. When in reality you’re going to be working the same as you do at an actual work space. People don’t realize when you are at home it doesn’t mean relaxation. Yes, you don’t have a boss over your shoulder, but you do if you are working for an employer and at home. You still have to report to them as usual just through cell phone or email. Also, if you are working for yourself, you are more not at home being at home than at home. Meaning when you are working you are so caught up in the moments o your work you are not recognizing the environment until you take your breaks.

no one to talk to

When you look around your house and see no one, you may start to get that feeling of who do I talk to. Because a lot of people once they become adults take on friendships with the people we work with. But with you working at home, how do you meet people in life. You might have to go to meetups and come in contact with people in your career field. This way you can forge some type of bond with someone or people. And this not the only downside of working form home. There is the other side of from home and for yourself; finances. Money woes tend to sway your life a certain direction as well because you don’t have a stable place to go to everyday.

freedom

Imagine waking up and making your own hours each day. You can put in 5 hours or 15 hours in a day. That is the beauty, but most likely you’ll be working more hours. You will see yourself putting in 60 to 70 hours easy. But those hours you put in more could actually prove to be better than the time you spend working for someone else less. Especially if you doing something you love; time speeds by fast. I know this first hand when I am working on photography or filmmaking. That time flies because I am doing something I love to do.
