What is your hedge against the world’s economy? Have you ever thought about your business from that perspective? When I made the decision to come online in 2006, I was thinking about my health issues and the lifestyle I wanted more than of the economy. Within a year or so, after I finally started earning some money, I realized I had made a wise decision because of what was happening around the world with the economy. We were entering the deepest recession we had experienced in decades, and being able to work from home within the global economy was very comforting.
A few months ago it seemed that recovery was on the horizon. I even wondered if people would still be so interested in starting an online business. Unemployment eased up. Real estate began to move. People were buying cars and televisons. But just as things were starting to get a little better, we have now been hit with this recent news that things will get much worse before they improve significantly.
There has never been a better time or reason to have another way to earn income that can sustain you regardless of what’s going on with the world’s economy. These are some things to think about:
Someone you know personally will lose their job before Christmas this year. Most likely this will take them by surprise, because they have been lulled into a false sense of security during the past few years that this could not possibly happen in their industry, at their company, to them.
A recent college graduate you know will still not have the job they were hoping for during this next year or longer. They may have borrowed money to finish school, believing they would have a job doing what they enjoy and earning a comfortable starting salary. When I went back to school at age 30 to earn my teaching credential I borrowed about $25,000. There was a teacher shortage at that time. Now teachers are being laid off in record numbers as budget’s are cut and class sizes increase. Even a graduate degree does not guarantee a satisfactory job placement.
Investments you were counting on will decrease in value more than you ever imagined. This includes stocks, bonds, real estate, and more. If you own a home, know that the primary advantage right now is the right to live where you choose, not the possibility of appreciation in the near future.
Is this negative thinking? No, this is just the way it is right now.
Think of your online business as your hedge against the world’s economy. Just as people went to the movies in record numbers during the Great Depression, people are continuing to turn to the Internet for education, entertainment, and information during these times. You can be there to serve their needs. Serving others is a worthwhile and rewarding goal.
As the saying goes:
Tough times don’t last; tough people do.
