With how bad the economy is a lot of people are looking for jobs. Most are willing to work for whatever money they can to survive. I have been a 15 year self owned company, and I have realized that the money isn’t getting better for people, rather it is steadily getting worse. I have seen a dramatic drop in any work.
I recently talked to a company that I subcontract for, and found out they were looking for employees for their jobs in sales. I was told that my reputation stood before me, and that everything I do, and the values I have for customers would help me have a better chance at the job. I got a call today asking if I was still willing to work part time. I immediatelly told the manager that I was more than willing.
I will see what it is like after almost 13 years of working on my own what it is like to be back in the employee sector. I will not close my business at this point, but I will find alternate means to keep it running efficiently until I make further decisions.
