What is the Rat Race?


Visitors: 129

Sometimes what we are looking for is not what we always find. . . . . .

Own a franchise.

Own your own truck and drive.

Own your own landscaping business

Why not have your work, work for you? Don't get me wrong, I am not putting down franchise owners, truck drivers or landscape owners, but in todays world there are quicker and different ways to become your own boss, and not having to put in more hours than when you worked a job for someone else. I know there is a lot of stuff out there and a lot of scams, so you have to do some homework.

But if you're really serious about wanting your own time, your own life and your own money, then I suggest that you do not give up on your dreams. The Rat Race is a place a lot of us are in, it comes to a personal desire to want to get out of the Rat Race. The oldest question is do how do I get out? Well there are different ways and yes these different ways do work, its a matter of what you will do and how much time you are willing to put into it. You can buy franchises and then you will be working for yourself, that is the goal right?

Well with a franchise you will have to put up a very large sum of money, anywhere from $100,000 to $250,000, then you will have to put up a very large sum of your time. A typical franchise owner puts in from 40-100 hours per week, but your still working for yourself. After that then you will see a profit after 3 to 5 years. Well if you ask me thats still the Rat Race but in disguise because you are still working for someone, even if it is for yourself. Hey the bottom line is the no matter what we decide we want to do there will have to be some work done.

Some are willing to put in the 40-100 hours a week to get where they want to be, but why not follow people that are putting in much less time and still making, more than a franchise owner in less time. Times change as do methods, there are methods that we can use to catapult ourselves into the life of where we want to be. So if you desire something with leverage then I suggest that you start believing in yourself and DARE TO DREAM. I hope that you do have your own dreams because dreams are what keeps up striving to be better people for ourselves and for others. I have found my DREAMS and desires and I keep striving every day to reach the point of where I can say “I FINALLY MADE IT".

This website will give some insight and if you continue to go all the way, there is plenty of guidance to help us to reach our goals sooner than we think.
