I remember one time I was going to a concert at First Avenue. Probably you don’t know where First Ave is, so I’d like to highly recommend you go rent the movie Purple Rain tonight…or soon. Anyways, that’s where I was. On the way across a parking lot a guy approached my friends and I and offered to play that game where he has some cups and a ball and you have to guess under which cup is the ball. Well my friend lost. He said it was a scam and didn’t want to pay. Then out of nowhere the cup-artists muscle appeared and assured that my friend pay up.
Guess what. The leaders of my country I don’t respect...but that guy with the cups and ball has garnered as much respect as I can garner for one individual. He’s the poster child for the American Dream. He makes his own schedule, meets lots of interesting people, chooses the location where he wants to work and doesn’t have some irritating boss breathing down his neck all day.
Sound good? Well you can do it to…with all those benefits from day one. But, if you don’t have the muscle to force people like my friends to pay up you have a stay at home job instead.
With so many uncertainties in the corporate world today, all the forced overtime, missed moments with your family and every other difficulty with a traditional position, having a stay at home job is pretty much a no brainer.
There are plenty of opportunities and options to choose from in regards to what type of stay at home job you pursue, so it almost seems that the most difficult part is making the decision to do it. From there, its your interests and abilities that will guide your new career and destiny. If your still not convinced that a stay at home job is right for you; consider again my hero in the red, velvet running suit. He made twenty bucks in five minutes; chew on that.
