As shorter days and longer nights mark the end of carefree days and warm nights of summer, 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 “new normal.”
Americans Wasted 768 Million Vacation Days Last Year. A recent report by Statista, says that 768 million vacation days went unused in 2018. On average, people took 17.4 days off in 2018. That is far less than the period between 1978 and 2000 when 20.3 vacation days were used per year on average.
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® (TES), 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 away (again) 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, no chance for vertical movement within the company, and are forced to cover several jobs, plus their own.
The Battered Career Syndrome®
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.
The Battered Career Syndrome® makes us 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®?
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.
“The professional coaching environment The Entrepreneur’s Source® provides can help those suffering from ‘Battered Career Syndrome’ discover new options for career development,” says Powell. “We can show them how they can truly take control of their professional and personal future to achieve the Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity they, and their family, deserve.”
Powell outlines four key steps to start your transition away from “Battered Career Syndrome®” and going from Employment to Empowerment®:
The time is NOW never to feel the “Wanna Get Away?” blues ever again. You deserve more than your current job which has little security and zero chances for advancement while forcing you to cover more jobs for less pay. No wonder you “Wanna Get Away!”
