Discover why starting an online business in our new economy could help you build economic security for the future and increase your Financial Health.
A new trend has begun in our ever changing economy. Temporary positions are the norm and not the exception. Organizations contract with independent workers for short term engagements. It's not the world your parents grew up in where you get a job with a company and stay there for 40 years. By 2020 it is expected that 40% of all workers in America would be independent contractors. This is a huge shift in the economy and in in your future financial health.
It’s is the start of a new era. It’s a reality we all have to learn to live with. Will you be prepared?
The American middle class is disappearing and the gap between the haves and have not is growing ever wider. Around 70% of all working Americans make less than $50,000 a year.
This change has made it more economically sound to become an entrepreneur than an employee. And really with the explosion of the online world there is no better place to start to become an entrepreneur than by starting an online business.
People are spending more time online and they are also just spending more online. Just think Amazon! It is projected that 80% of business will soon be done online. There is a great potential to get in on the ground floor of a new wave sweeping through the economy.
There are a lot of reasons to get into the online business world. Here are just a few…

I mentioned Amazon earlier. You could be a re-seller on Amazon or E bay. If you have a special skill others are looking for, you could do freelance work. You could do affiliate marketing where you promote products and get a percentage of the sale.
The one I choose is to become an independent distributor within the networking industry.
There are several reasons I choose this path. The main one was because my Mom was doing it - and doing it before the internet was around - so I really wasn’t looking to start an online business but was just being the “tech guy” for my Mom. Once I got started I found that I really liked it. It was like a puzzle getting people to come to my website and then get them to actually buy something. It was fun and after awhile it started to make me money. Who can argue with that.
Some of the things I really like about the networking industry are:
Now I know you have probably heard of Network Marketing and for many people this brings to mind negative images. I am here to tell you it is not all bad. It really depends on you, the company and the people who are there to help you on whether Network Marketing is a GOOD choice are a bad one. The thing that really turned me around was the online marketing. It's a whole new world out there and network marketing really can be the solution for YOUR financial health.
