Either of your situations, there are some possibilities of changing, switching, or starting a new career as an entrepreneur if you know how.
It is all in your mind. Constraints we facing during the era up to mid 90 before the internet was established, never for once we were thinking about owning a business even if just a small one.
One of the reasons was to own a business we needed huge capital either for start-up cost and investment plus capital for running the business. For the majority of communities like mine, it was out of our thoughts, never ever come to our mind to think about that idea.
On the other side of life, the business ideas were only discussed among the riches, the bankers and financial institutions, foreign investors, government agencies, and business consultants due to the involvement of a huge investment.
My job back then as an employee was just to manage part of the business as my responsibility allocated to me based on my skills and experience. That's all. However, with the corporate involvement at the time, I can see the difference with this era of the internet.
As long as there is a computer and internet connection, we can start building our own business with just a small capital for a program or software needed (if we want to) otherwise we can just learn ourselves by browsing the information of related business acumen we need to know.
It sound too easy to be true, but the reality is it already happened in front of our own eyes. Millionaire after millionaire has been created through doing business online started with just a laptop and internet connection.
During my tenure as an employee in the corporate world, I've heard so often the executives always reminded us that information is power. It was true back then that the information is power, however, the power was in a very limited level of the scope of our job, responsibility, and involvement.
In this digital era, that power could be otherwise unlimited if we seriously position ourselves in such a way that we would be able to know about the related skills and knowledge of doing business just by browsing the internet.
Some said the sky is the limit in this internet era. We are only limited by our mindset. You can achieve what you want in life nowadays easier compared to the era where I've been through before the existence of internet.
This Era of Digital Benefits You The Most.
Even though a bit pity for me because of my age, I'm still feeling lucky to be able to learn and train myself to catch up with this most development digital world we ever live.
I can distinguish the way we acquire information nowadays compared to my era back then. It is a lot easier, faster and no border. You can develop yourself in any way or any field you want, any business of your desire, any level of skill, knowledge and even wealth level you want to achieve. And the most important one is at no cost or very little for your time consumed.
It was a lot harder during my era of pre-internet to gather an even only small portion of the information we needed could cost us our monthly salary, besides its very time-consuming.
So where are you now in this era of easy access to everything through internet browsing. Have you positioned yourself to grab the advantages of the internet? Like I said before, the sky is the limit. It is up to you.
Anything you want to know is just in seconds with your finger's tips on an i-phone, i-pad, smart-phone or a notebook to easily access the internet.
Imagine in two, three or five years time from now, if you start doing something productively online with those digital tools now, what will your life status be?It is probably challenging for you to imagine your life like 2, 3 or 5 years or more ahead of you because you have no clue how to envision your life to the future.
It's only a matter of familiarizing yourself with the internet searches to browse the term or keywords for the data or information you want to know.
Anything else just depends on how you manage your time for your daily routines and doing your new task of browsing.
