Perth, Australia (PressExposure) September 05, 2009 -- For some, the idea of starting their own business after years of working for someone else is both exciting and scary. After all, if you've spent years climbing the corporate ladder only to find that the ladder never ends, then all the work you've already done seems for naught.
Good news! All the work you've done does matter. Sure, it may not have produced the outcome you may have envisioned...a grateful company, consistent promotions, a nice heft paycheck and security as you look towards retirement. What it has given you is experience...lessons learned through trial and error that make you the perfect candidate for entrepreneurship.
For some, it's the only option. Baby boomers currently in the marketplace are finding that companies tend to hire younger, less experienced employees who will settle for a smaller paycheck leaving the optimally experienced, well versed individuals frustrated in their job search.
Alas, all the years of proving your worth and value to a company can bear fruit. Now it's time to put your skills into action and prove your worth and value to yourself. A fresh start doesn't mean starting over, it means starting fresh. Consider that your life could, from this moment, be a blank canvas that you can paint as you like. Have your own business? Check. Make more money? Check. Feel confident and self-assured? Check.
