The pandemic as awful as it was has opened up the world to different types of flexible working, following your dreams and a whole host of small businesses popping up all over the place. People are even continuing to work from home or doing a hybrid approach. People are starting to no longer accept they just need to get on with a job they don’t like. They can look to pursue their passions and make a career out of them. People are choosing to believe in themselves and do the thing they have always wanted or even just looking at being their boss for the flexibility and wanting to spend more time with family as they have become accustomed to it after lockdown.
So a lot of people are looking to make a career change and it can mean a lot of different things. It might mean that you are going to go back to school. It might mean that you are looking to create a startup and run your own business or simply you want to buy a business and run it yourself. There are so many options out there. Something to suit everyone.
When looking to buy a business there is a lot to consider and you may yourself feel a bit lost with the legal terms, jargon and not sure what you’re looking for. In these instances, it is ideal to get a business broker to help you find the perfect match for you and save you time searching for it.
You may not be able to afford to make a career change right now but don’t worry. It is almost the norm and very common for a lot of people to work their 9 to 5 jobs while also having a side hustle. For a lot of people, their 9 to 5 salaries just don’t cover what they need with the world getting more and more expensive. So you can tread lightly and just start up doing things occasionally, in the evenings and weekends to suit your spare time. Then as things progress and take off you can come to the crossroads of carrying on and going all-in or just keeping it how it is.
You also look at doing multiple things. A lot of people these days like to look at their income as a 4 legged table. If one stops the table won’t collapse so they have other streams of income to soften the blow. However, some people have just one stream of income and as the pandemic has now proven when one stops and you don’t have any backup or alternative source of funds things can go bad very quickly. So for example you could rent a property out, be a social media influencer, have a day job and also make and sell jewellery. The possibilities and options are endless and personal to every person. Have your income stream align with your goals and passions in life. What will you decide to do?
