If you are one of the 40 million people who have filed unemployment claims since the outbreak of COVID-19, let go of your worries and find hope through career ownership.
The number of unemployed people who reported being on a temporary layoff increased about ten-fold to 18.1 million in April, and the number of permanent job losses increased by 544,000 to 2 million, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. Layoffs can prompt stress, financial insecurity and shame. At a time when staying healthy is a top priority, stress can be detrimental to your well-being. While it may take some time for job market to rebound, taking charge of your career can afford you the Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity™ you have always desired.
Let It Go Day is celebrated on June 23 every year and marks the perfect time to let go of the baggage and hang-ups preventing you from career ownership. Focusing on your goals, needs and expectations when it comes to Your Career 2.0® can help provide clarity during uncertain times.
“Job insecurity fueled by the current economic climate is providing many Americans with the catalyst they need to let go of climbing the corporate ladder and suffering from what we call the ‘Battered Career Syndrome®’,” said Terry Powell, founder and visionary of The Entrepreneur’s Source®. “It’s the perfect time to work with a Career Ownership Coach™ to determine your goals to find satisfaction and security through career ownership.”
Relying on a Coach to Help Alleviate Stress
Career Ownership Coaches™ with The Entrepreneur’s Source®, the nation’s leading career ownership coaching franchise, can help guide you on a path to career ownership and letting your worries go. There are several key steps to starting Your Career 2.0® that are especially important.
Determine your I.L.W.E.™goals. Focusing on your income, lifestyle, wealth and equity goals will help you determine if career ownership can be a stepping-stone to career satisfaction. The Entrepreneur’s Source® believes it is important to ensure you can balance your retirement vision with your career aspirations. Understanding your goals enables you to keep an open mind when exploring the possibilities of self-sufficiency.
Our Career Ownership Coaches™ are trained through a coaching experience which empowers them to reach a point of clarity free of charge.
Keep a close eye on finances. The performance of our financial portfolios is dependent on the economy, the stock market, unemployment, and many factors outside of our control. While workers are feeling battered and bruised from working more hours for less pay at corporate jobs, the unpredictability in the stock market is causing many Americans to suffer from Battered Investor Syndrome®. Career ownership allows you to diversify your portfolio and deploy some of your retirement funds into an investment you can control.
Investing in career ownership has many advantages. Finding good talent is not as difficult as it may seem, and low interest rates make financing painless.
“A career transition isn’t the untimely end of your professional life — it can be the beginning of a profitable future,” Powell said. “Before scouring job boards and sending out resumes for another corporate job, individuals owe it to themselves and their families to explore the possibilities available to them.”
Find a career that serves your community. Pay special attention to possibilities that are relevant during this unprecedented time. Many industries are growing despite the pandemic. Grocery stores, healthcare facilities, pest and lawn care providers are reporting positive sales. Of all the people we’ve coached towards new careers, 95 percent end up in a possibility they never knew existed or would have prematurely dismissed.
If are tired of suffering from The Battered Career or Battered Investor Syndrome® and are searching for your next step, contact a Career Ownership Coach™ at The Entrepreneur’s Source® to discover your path to fulfillment and kick your worry to the curb.
