Why Wait To Be Laid Off? Start Your Business Now

Small Business Start Up

The Buckster writes: In this day of uncertainty I ask anyone that has ever had an ambition to grow a business Why Wait to Be Laid Off?  As a resident in the Houston Texas Area I have seen two large companies come out to say they are laying off. Chevron has said they were laying off 6500 and Exxon Mobile 9000 globally.  I say to those 16K individuals start you a business.  There are way too many business consultants out there just waiting to help you.  You all have an expertise in some area please take advantage of that skill.  Get around someone with a Entrepreneur mindset that has the attitude to go get it.  Many of you are saying I do not know what to do or how to go about starting your business.  First things first, start by going to such sites as Youtube and begin to listen to videos on how to start a business.  Second, get with your local chambers or non profit organizations that promote starting a business.  We all have to start somewhere and we all have to learn.  Sure, you will run up against some tough times but I would rather deal with those times than deal with doing nothing, submitting resumes, and waiting to hear an answer back.  At least with starting a business you are able to have some sort of control of your destiny.  The thing about being an Entrepreneur that I love more than anything is having the attitude that if I do not do I do not eat.  Listen, I am going to do a simple breakdown of the potential money you can make as a IT person.  A System Administrator can make upwards of $100K a year.  As an entrepreneur doing the same thing for your business your salary goes to $301,600K based on 40 hours a week at a going rate of 135 /hr.  This is just a small example of what you can do.  Now this being said, this is no cake walk and you will have to hustle. The competition is stiff however the rewards are tremendous.  Let me give you one more example of how you can get started right away.  The State of Texas does business in every business vertical.  Once you get all your paperwork completed to business in the state here is a simple look at the amount of money the state is spending. This is per the SBA

In Texas

Total Federal Contracting Funds Awarded – FY 2015


 In Texas

Total Number of Federal Contracting Transactions – FY 2015


I would encourage anyone to give Entrepreneurship a shot.  The risks are great but the rewards are even greater.  If you are in the Houston Texas Area and would like to speak about starting a business send me an email to set up an appointment at Support@nhancedbizsolutions.com  For those of you outside of Houston I can also help you virtually at the same email address.  Lets connect and get you off and running with your own business.  Do not wait for someone to dictate your future take control yourself.  I will be waiting for your email.
