The Entrepreneur’s Source Asks: Should You Stay or Should You Go? As 2019 gets underway and with the worst year for U.S. stocks since 2008 in the rear-view mirror, thousands of employed Americans are hitting the “reset button” and going back to being uncertain about their professional futures. The only real constant in business today is there is no such thing as “job security” in the corporate world, as corporations are only loyal to their bottom lines.
The lack of control in today’s “Yes-Boss Culture” and the constant threat of being downsized, right-sized, or capsized have 71% of workers in the United States either actively looking for new jobs or putting the topic at the top of their mind and hoping for something better.
So what’s the move here? Job hopping with no guarantees and a definite endpoint, usually not of your choosing? Staying put, waiting for the inevitable blade? Waiting to be told, “We’re eliminating your department/position”? Or betting on your skill sets, drive, and desire for something better to make a real career change?
We must run our careers differently. It’s time to take control of your professional life by creating Your Career 2.0® and taking a deep dive into exploring business ownership.
Terry Powell, the CEO and Visionary Founder of The Entrepreneur Source®, North America’s leading career and franchise business coaching company, says, “We want people to stop settling for the ‘New Normal!’ Job security is a thing of the past. Working longer for less is what the corporate world demands today.”
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
At The Entrepreneur’s Source®, we call this ‘The Battered Career Syndrome®,’ and for too long, Americans have bought into the notion that they can’t leave a job and must make constant trade-offs to keep it. But it can be done, and all it takes is an unflinching look at your current position, and the Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity (I.L.W.E.) goals you could have by becoming your own boss!”
