QNET: Get A Job Or Start A Business

It is usually the case that when people are presented with an opportunity, the first "fight or flight" response to that opportunity is usually flight! I recently had the opportunity to introduce QNET to a close friend and their response is the basis of this post. "Am broke and I need a job because the bills are piling up and I can save and buy one of your products". In this business there are two kinds of "no money" objections:

The REAL no money objection: People really have no money to invest in starting a business because it is relatively an expansive high cost opportunity.

The PSEUDO no money objection: People don’t trust you enough to invest a big amount of money so instead of saying to you they don’t trust you enough , they just say they have no money.

My friend falls under the first category and by the end of this post, I hope I will have opened up yours and their minds to the bigger picture. If you are like my friend and you have no job, bills are stacking up by the day, cannot survive because the living standard seems to be getting too high, then this post is for you too.

While I think that having a job is something that should generally be avoided if at all possible, I want to offer some balance on this post and acknowledge that it’s sometimes a necessary evil, and indeed is sometimes preferred. Here are some reasons why having a job may be good for you;

Guaranteed income. When you start a job, you just show up, and as long as you avoid getting fired by doing work, you get paid. There are no if's, and's, or but's about it!

Simplicity. There’s always a learning curve when you start a new job and it might take a few months to fully get up to speed. But once you’re there, you can just put yourself on cruise control.

Less responsibility. You just have a single role that you need to fit into, and that’s all you’re responsible for.

Easy to match your work with your field of study. If you went to college, you probably majored in a field that was aligned with your interests. It makes sense that you’d want to put that degree to good use.

Being normal. If you go with the flow, you don’t have to explain yourself when you need to do something out of the ordinary.

Easier to introduce yourself at parties! Job titles are often short and sweet and having a business means needing a lot of words to explain what you do, or inviting a barrage of questions.

Having no source of income sucks, there's no refuting this fact. Money is not everything but we sure need it to survive in this world and getting yourself a job may seem like the best solution, but is it really? Think about it for a minute. Here are some points to consider.

Your life or your money. If you want to quit your job so you can have a life, you have to give up the money. And if you want the money, you have to hand over control of your life. I don’t think either choice is acceptable. do you?

Who do you want to decide your life purpose? Do you believe that your life is supposed to have a purpose? That you’re here for a reason and that the world will be better off with you doing what you’re supposed to do? If so, who do you want to decide your life purpose, you or your boss?

You’re a pet at best, and a slave at worst. As a pet, you jump through hoops in return for handouts that let you tread water until the next payday. You make plans and then have to tell people you’re canceling because you have to work late. As a slave, you have all the disadvantages of being a pet, plus you have to get used to saying “thank you sir/madam, may I have another?” You get to work way too early and stay way too late because the time you clock is all that matters.

The rat race. They call it the rat race for a reason. The next time you see a rat running around in its wheel, take a good hard look at it. Notice that it doesn’t look happy. Notice that it works as hard as it can but doesn’t actually go anywhere.

The middle class is no class. Most employees have no control over their income. If you want to make $100,000 a year but your boss decides the position will pay $70,000 a year, who do you think wins? If a 3% raise is in your company’s budget, that’s what you get. It doesn’t matter if inflation is 4% so your “raise” is actually a pay cut. You get what you get.

It’s way too communistic. If two people are doing the same job, but one person’s performance is double that of the other’s, who gets paid more? The high performer, of course! An employee’s purpose is to help the company complete it's work, and they should be paid in proportion to how well they do that. If only it were so! Performance, in a job, is often not a factor at all in your compensation. Do everything or do nothing, it doesn’t matter. A job usually rewards the weak and punishes the strong.

This might be a little extreme I know. For one thing, there are people out there who love their jobs and even among people who hate the idea of employment, jobs are often necessary. Jobs teach us some level of responsibility bescause they put us in a position where other depend on us. Jobs teach us how to budget, how to manage time, how to interact with others, and yes, jobs do pay a steady wage.

If after reading this far you are still content with having or applying for a job, all the best to you. If however you are not content, the next portion of this post is for YOU. The opportunity that I offered my friend and that I offer anyone still reading on is that of owning your own business and earning supplemental income. Here are some of my reasons why I believe you should consider this opportunity seriously.

You become your own boss. If you join with me and start up your own business, the only person you have to answer to is yourself. Being your own boss gives you the freedom to do things your way and implement your own plans.

Job security does not exist. Job security is a thing of the past. Jobs appear, change, or disappear practically overnight.

Freedom. You have the power and freedom to do whatever you like. All the deadlines are set by you, you get to choose which direction your business takes and there is no set schedule for when you have to work.

Tax advantages. By having a home based business, you have the power to deduct your home, business vacations, cars and business meals.

Get paid first. Unlike at a job where the government and your boss get paid first before you see a salary, by owning your own business, you get paid first.

You don’t have to "bet the farm". The risk for any new business venture can never be mitigated completely, but it’s up to you to decide just how much to chance. You can join QNET by purchasing a product worth $ 400 or $ 13,000 the choice is yours.

You can have a second career. Of course, if you don’t fancy giving up a regular income, you can always get the best of both worlds and stay as an employee while running your own business.

It’s not that hard to do. Buy a product, recieve a virtual office with free business tool kits and a website, recieve free training, attract people to you, build relationships and refer them to your business.

Low Overhead. One of the greatest advantages of starting a QNET business is you have no expensive monthly rent thus saving you tens of thousands of dollars every year. Also with no commute to deal with everyday, you can also save money on fuel and travel expenses.

Mobility. One of the most unique features the QNET business opportunity can offer you is the ability to live and work in the geographical area of their choice. As long as you can access the internet, your business travels with you.

Enviable Lifestyle. Have the freedom and flexibility to enjoy your life more fully. Spend more time with your loved ones, pursue other interests, and have the ability to set your own schedule.

Your dream can really become a reality.  If you dream of being the next millionaire, don’t dismiss it as a mere fantasy, it really could happen. What are you waiting for?

Take ACTION Today

If you are like my friend and you have no money, no job, bills are stacking up by the day, cannot survive because the living standard is getting too high, and you are interested supplementing your income, here is some advice for you. Talk to your family and friends and ask them for their support and a loan (which you will pay back in full once you start earning commissions as you business starts to grow).

Head on over to the official QNET website and register to become an Independent Representative of QNET then purchase your product. Once you join and own your product and undergo the free business training process, head out into the world and share your product and business opportunity to everyone you meet and watch as your business grows. Then you, in my opinion, have the option to seek a job that you love and not one that you hate but pays well. The choice is yours.
