The ongoing recession has caused many individuals to take a good look at their working circumstances, and in many cases to re-evaluate their position.
With an unemployment rate of close to 25%, anyone who has a steady job must consider himself or herself as being fortunate. The problem is, unless you are working for yourself, no job is safe.
Only a few years back thousands of workers found themselves retrenched overnight with no job, no pay and no pension. It is no wonder why so many people are looking for business ideas in South Africa.
In spite of the down turn in the economy, there are plenty of business ideas to be found in SA. Before embarking on a wasted search though, it is vital that you should get yourself into the right frame of mind. If you have been working for someone else, whether in a small company or a big organisation, there is a good chance that you have been working for them for at least 80% of your working life. You will be living and working in what is called a Comfort Zone.
This is a set of circumstances or conditions in which you feel comfortable – so much so that your natural feeling is one of wanting to stay in that situation. In fact to up and quit your job in order to take up one of those business ideas is the last thing that you would ever consider. But do consider this – you may not think it likely to happen, but you could arrive at work tomorrow to find yourself with no job at all!
Being in your comfort zone goes hand in hand with a whole lot of negativity.
But the truth is that there are plenty of business ideas in South Africa in which you would be far better off. Wouldn’t you prefer to be your own boss, to work to your own time schedule? The Work Your Wealth Streetwise Business workshop is a dynamic training session that will start you off on the right foot. It will go through a number of business ideas and help you to get any new business idea in SA off the ground. If you already have a business, this workshop will enable you to give it a kick start.
Many owners of new small businesses make the mistake of trying to run their business without having a business plan. They just let the business run itself, the result being a business that eats up money and eventually fails.
Our seminar will guide you through a plan that will work in such a way that you end up with a system that generates cash rather than eats it up. We will show you what business ideas there are in South Africa, and how to start up a new business from scratch and on a shoestring. We will show you how to source new staff members that are correct for the business, how to build them up into a flourishing team that together wants nothing better than for your business to succeed.
When a recession hits it is usually the large organizations that lay off people first, and the first signs of this should be taken as a hint that maybe it’s time to move on. If you have the will to work and the time to do so, there is still money to be made, even in a recession. Work Your Wealth can assist by putting you on the right track and giving you the weapons to make your business idea in SA a winner.
