Jobs are Gone But Opportunities are Everywhere
The jobs of the last generation are gone and they are not coming back. Production line workers, mechanics, and middle managers positions that had expensive benefit packages and livable salaries have disappeared . The factory has likely moved to a third world country where labor is very cheap and the cost of production is much less. As hard as it is to watch these jobs leave our small towns and cities, it is a great time to welcome new opportunities.
It is time for us to return to our entrepreneurial roots. We need to look to ourselves and our God given talents for security. No job can provide security in this wold today. We need to look for solutions to problems as this always leads to new and innovative business ideas. We have one of the highest educated and most motivated workforces in the world in America, This is the time to refocus, access our creativity, find problems that need solutions, and apply the technology we have created.
In summary, we need to give up on finding a job and focus on the new opportunities that surround us.
