Let’s face it – the alternative media is filled to the brim with articles foretelling economic collapse, world war, depopulation, etc. Even Silver Vigilante is totally guilty of being heavy on negative news without a lot of workable solutions. But, on this Fourth of July, Independence Day, let’s take a look at what can make the United States great again – entrepreneurial spirit.
But first – the reality of the situation. Small to medium size businesses are not hiring – they cannot. They must, like an emerald in a meadow, blend in with their surrounding environment. Cost-cutting measures are money. For example, when we walk into a grocery store today, the shopping experience is much like the one of old – you go in, grab that which you are looking for, and walk towards the checkout registers. But, this is where the experience of today differs from the experience of the past. Instead of the grocery store having enough employees to serve the customers in a timely manner, there are only a couple of people working. Go at the wrong time and you’ll find that the lines stretch down the food aisles.
The bottom line reigns supreme. In post-2008 banking collapse America, as depression ravages the land, the big corporations are not suffering. They’ve learned to adapt – they’ve increased their prices and fired workers. Their profits might be larger than ever. They needed a good excuse, after all, to bring in their own austerity measures.
And so, it’s just plain tough to get a job. Everybody knows this. But, I submit that you ought not be searching for a job if you are unemployed or looking to move on from your current job. That is a slave’s mentality. Instead of looking for a job, what you really should be looking for is money. That’s all – just money. And you do not necessarily need a job to get money. You can create your own job.
And that is a major key. YOU can start a website, setup and Adsense account. I highly encourage you to do so. Most of us have never created a dime for ourselves, but today it is easier than ever. One does not necessarily need to stick with the website as a source of income, but I highly encourage that everyone somehow get at least a little but of experience making money themselves. It is a liberating experience, and can awaken your entrepreneurial spirit.
