We attended a birthday party this weekend for a long time friend. It was so much fun seeing some people whom I had not seen since her birthday party last year. Hearing what was going on for people, I thought big things would have changed. I was looking around the room and realized that besides myself there were only two other self employed people in the room.
Even though statistically there has been a large influx of people opening their own business, I guess statistically this room would have been about average. One of the things that still startles me about small business is that according to the IRS and the Small Business Bureau most are earning less than $25,000 per year.
Wages in our area, even for corporate professionals have significantly dropped. For those that were part of a layoff, most returned to work earning far less, sometimes even half of what they had previously been earning for the same work. Looking at a $60,000 job now earning $30,000 I guess the self employed statistic really isn’t that far off and when you marry it with the freedom of running your own calendar and being your own boss, I can see the attraction.
Still I hear most people covet the 6 figure income level with their business. What this would mean is that they are truly interested in building a business and not just a job. There is a difference and only 5% of the population will ever understand that difference.
For those of you that have been following me for some time you know that where I play is taking people to that 6 and 7 figure level business. I have worked with people in all industries who have been willing to take the steps to actually build a business and earn 6 figures and beyond.
For those of you that are ready to play at that level, email me today and let’s see if you are a good fit for my CEO Club – Confidence Excitement Ownership – it’s time for you to enjoy the life that today only 5% of the population enjoy.
I will be closing the doors for this 2014 Club in April, so don’t wait if you know it’s you – and you know if it is, trust yourself and let’s play!
