How to Start a Side Business Without Quitting Your Job
This past month I received at least 20 calls from people around the country who were seeking a way to earn additional income. Most callers had jobs, but just about every person had no bonus program, no way to increase saving or to buy extra needed things. The common questions were, “How can I start a side business without quitting my job? How can a build a side business for myself and my family? What business is right for me?”
I believe that today the general work structure for most people is stagnant, as people work for survival. The nature of most corporate employment is to keep employees bonded to the business, but at the same time, in all too many cases, the business just cannot do more for its employees. This sets up the reality that if you want more security, you have to look past the concept of corporate security and limited pay.
One answer for people who are motivated is to look at what you do now and what you can do that might be synergetic to your experiences. For instance, people with sales experience and people who feel confident talking with business owners can build a side business while working with my program.
In order to begin identifying the right fit for you, I would start by examining the business opportunities presented by shopabizop.com. It features all kinds of different business startup programs, all of which have proven to provide a structure for others to follow.
One example is my business opportunity program, which enables you to become a business transfer consultant/business broker. It focuses on the process of establishing a business transfer consulting practice utilizing the methods scripts and guidelines developed by me and my accomplished business broker consultants over the past 30 years.
Having your own business brokerage practice, offering support to business owners who wish to sell their business, is a great way to earn income by learning the science and art of locating business buyers. And, my bizop business opportunity can be started without quitting your job.
My program will verse you in the business of research, using direct mail, making appointments and making presentations as you go after and close on lucrative business relationships, all while utilizing your own creativity to ensure your success. Making a business seller to business buyer match can be a great revenue source. In fact, I have had clients who paid off their mortgage in one successful business sale transaction.
I have many stories referencing people who once worked full-time at a regular type job who then made an effort to build their own consulting practice in business brokerage and who have prospered greatly as a result.
They started out meeting potential clients on weekends and in the evenings and in hotel lobbies and restaurants. One broker would constantly meet people at diners in order to keep the sell concept confidential.
As people consider the concept of having a side business, the scope is unlimited depending on where you live and the energy that can be focused on the business you select. At the shopabizop.com portal there are all kinds of packaged business opportunities that can fit the profile of a side business structure.
My suggestion is to gather information on a few offerings, carefully consider each program as being your potential new business and then make a plan. You can grow at your own pace and be confident that your business will succeed through using the methods offered.
If you wish to consider having a side business, my recommendation is to go for it. In our current business environment people have built nice business platforms that can be duplicated all over the country. You just need to find the best fit for you.
Don’t be afraid to talk with people about what you might want to do, starting with Kevin at shopabizop. I am sure that if you contact him, he can give you some paths to consider, and I am certain that your dream of starting a side business is as important today as anything you can do for yourself and family.
