How often do we hear reports of business closings and stores going out of business? Perhaps, everyday right?
Yep, too often!
The current economic climate is certainly take its toll, not only small businesses, but even large multinational corporations as well.
Those that are not, have no choice but to retool, re-engineer or reorganize.
At the time of this article, I did a quick Google search for 'businesses closing', it turned up over 1.3 million results!
And yes, these are probably articles and commentaries, but people are only writing on the subject because it is reality.
It is therefore a no-brainer that all these closings will have a direct impact on national GDP's, but even closer to home, it means that many of our friends and families will be without a job!
And what are the alternatives?
The job market is so tight and employment prospects are so dim now that there are not much options - but we still have to survive right? Of course.
Many persons have resorted to looking to relatively new and innovative approaches to earn a honest bread. One such option is to look for online business opportunities or work from home programs.
THE PROBLEM, and a BIG one unfortunately though, is that many of these are SCAMS; they are set up to steal your money!
But losing your money is one thing...
Perhaps most significant is that they waste your precious time and cause serious embarrassment to you and your family [many times they ask you to tell all your friends and family and have them join].
And bear in mind also that they usually appear highly impressive and irresistible, requiring you to ACT NOW.
Thankfully, as the author of this website, I have learnt my lesson and I now have a thriving little online business, with no special training.
