A recent AP poll shows that graduating from college is of little to no help.
“More than half of Bachelor’s degree holders younger than 25 were
jobless or underemployed last year, the highest share in 11 years.
Our Erin Vannella tells us more about a new Associated Press study
with underwhelming prospects for college undergrads.”
With most students having to pay for their education with student loans, how will these recent grads ever be able to pay off their loans?
They probably won’t be able to pay the loans off, ever.
They will become part of the ever growing “debt slave” class. Those will will work just to be able to pay off their loans.
So is there a solution to this growing problem?
Yes, there is. I am advocating starting you own business! Become an entrepreneur today!
FACT: Since 2007 the number of people searching the Internet for ways to “make money” has more than doubled since 2007 to over 5 million per month.
Are you an entrepreneur in waiting?
The age of the entrepreneur is here. The age when the only thing you can count on is yourself. Your passion, your vision, your drive, your determination and your ambitions.
I’m sure that if you are here reading this, that you have considered this option. Your over riding question is, no doubt, “Can I make a business work? Can I be successful?”
I’m here to tell tell you that you can be a success! You need to know where you’re trying to go and have a plan to get there. Having a mentor will be most helpful in this. They can show you the steps that they took to get where they are now. You just have to do the same things and you too will be a success!
If its really that easy, why are so many people failing in business? Because most people refuse to follow the instructions given them or they never ask for help in the first place.
This reminds me of the Cheshire Cat in “Alice in Wonderland.”
Alice comes to a fork in the road and the Cheshire Cat is there to help. To paraphrase, Alice asks the cat, “which way should I go?” The cat asks her, “Where do you want to go?” She replies, “I don’t know.” The cat then tells here, “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”
That, in a nutshell, is the problem. If you don’t know where you want to go, then you probably won’t get there.
So go out and find someone who has achieved what you’d like to do and ask then to tell you how they got there. That’s the best and quickest way to be successful!
If you are unemployed or underemployed, you should at least consider the route of becoming an entrepreneur. You’ll be helping yourself and you could be putting yourself in a position to help others as well.
If you have ever thought of yourself as a business person or entrepreneur, this may be the solution to the problems that you are having.
