By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

If you have ever been unemployed or if you are sitting there right now without a job, you may have read the title of this article and thought that this is impossible. The ability to earn a living and provide for you and your family was taken away from you with the simple act of you being unemployed. This is definitely a honest way to look at the situation that you are in. However, there have been people who have turned what most would consider a negative into a positive experience in their life. It is much easier then you would think to change the your life to take advantage of this time of you having free time that you usually do not have. All it takes is a plan and the drive to see it through.
Step One
Find a business plan or method to make money that you are passionate about while you are unemployed. Many people sit every day and wish that they had the opportunity to go into business for themselves. There are many reasons that most people do not move past the dream stage of owning their own business. One of these reasons is the lack of time when they are already working a 40 hour work week. Now that you are unemployed, you have all of the free time in the world to explore the idea of starting your own business.
There are many options to choose from and many that do not take a lot of upfront investment. When you are unemployed, money to spend on things other then the basics needed to survive can be at a minimum. That is why there are many business models that allow you to get started and build your business through hard work and dedication rather then through putting out thousands of dollars at first.
One of these business ideas that you can go into is making money writing online. In this case, you are your own business. The content that you produce whether it be for your own sites and blogs or for clients is the product that you sell or earn on. Depending on what you know about writing content for the Internet and SEO or search engine optimization, you can either start this endeavor without spending a dime or getting some learning material for a small investment to get you on the road to making big money while you are unemployed.
Another option is the world of MLM or multi level marketing. These companies that range from selling beauty products from Avon to all natural supplements often have small start up costs to help those that are unemployed or even struggling to make ends meet get started. There are often even ways to make money to put towards the start up costs in these businesses. It is this reason that the sky is the limit when it comes to business opportunities that you can start while you are unemployed.
Step Two
Dedicate the amount of time that you would have put towards your regular job before you became unemployed to the business venture that you are choosing to go into. Any business that you choose to start, will need to have time and hard work dedicated to it to get it off the ground. If you want to be successful in making being unemployed the best thing that has ever happened to you then you are going to need to do the hard work to make it a reality.
Step Three
Apply for and get the benefits and other things like insurance that are available to people who are unemployed. This is important because it will take time to build your business to a level that you will be earning a full time income from. While you are toiling away, you will still need to be able to pay your mortgage and other bills that will come due. This is where unemployment benefits and welfare benefits can help you to make ends meet until your business is the success that it will become.
