As the carefree days and warm nights of summer come to a close, so does (for most of us) the extra time spent with family and friends… and all too soon, it’s back to work and the “real world.”
Have you ever dreamed of what it could be like to trade your office desk for the beach house porch deciding if windsurfing, boat time, fishing, or all three, will be among your top priorities later in the day? Here at The Entrepreneur’s Source®, we call it the “Wanna Get Away?” dreams – those times right after a vacation where you’re sitting at your desk staring at endless emails and knowing you will be traveling like crazy again away from your family.
We’ve all had those daydreams, and it makes you think about what it would feel like to actually ACT on those “Wanna Get Away?” moments by permanently leaving the corporate world. You aren’t alone – most workers have zero job satisfaction because they have no chance for vertical movement within the company and are forced to cover several jobs, including their own. This situation robs them of their joy and motivation. Plus, like you, they are fearful of being swept up in the next round of downsizing, to create a better-looking bottom line to entice corporate suitors. Isn’t it time to start taking more control from the Battered Career Syndrome?
According to a new Bankrate survey, only 36 percent of respondents who get paid vacation days plan to use all of them this year. About 13 percent of workers with paid time off don’t intend to use ANY of their vacation days.
Fear, an uncertain employment climate, and lack of professional growth opportunities is no way to earn a living, but many choose this path because they have bought into the belief they have no other way. This is the “Battered Career Syndrome” in a nutshell. But are they (and YOU) truly candidates to ACT on the “Wanna Get Away?” feeling…and not just for a week in the summer? YES – and we can help you do just that at The Entrepreneur’s Source® (TES).
At TES, we believe no one should settle for the “new normal” of corporate America today. Terry Powell, the visionary founder of TES, says there is another path: becoming self-sufficient by owning your own business, as an entrepreneur.
