Partner Up

Written by Ed Howes

Continued from page 1

New world corporations are beginning to organize their labor force into self help groups but I see voluntary partnerships as far more productive and flexible. Economic partnerships can pay partners far better wages or dividends than heavily regulated and policy oriented corporations. Management and supervisory costs are minimized.

This isrepparttar Information Age. The U.S. manufacturing base is moving to where labor is cheaper, regulation looser and taxes lower. There will be far less corporate employment and far more self employment. Individuals will have difficulty raising capital for start- up enterprises or expansion of small, successful enterprises.

Partnerships will improverepparttar 132373 ability to raise capital and it is also likely that credit unions will be aggressively seeking small businesses in need of capital. As information grows in volume, organizing it isrepparttar 132374 wave ofrepparttar 132375 future. Much ofrepparttar 132376 work can be done at home, which is another rapidly growing trend among corporate drop outs. Reading and computer skills will remain in high demand; imagination and problem solving, likewise.

Instead of waiting for corporate jobs to become available, Americans should be creating their own jobs. We have been so dependent on others to do this for us; it seems like a very difficult task. It is not. Look first to your own personal interests. Choose any one or two about which you could be passionate. Ask yourself if when you have learned to do a thing for yourself, as with a hobby; who might pay you to dorepparttar 132377 same for them? When you have answered that question, let your potential customers know your services are available. If you are struggling to find time to develop a small business, look for alternatives in lifestyle that reduce costs, time requirements and yields higher income for a given investment of your time. Askrepparttar 132378 universe how to achieve what you want on a regular basis andrepparttar 132379 answer(s) will appear.

What partnership offers first and foremost is moral support and reinforcement. Find someone who shares your passion for an idea and discuss it with them. Don't worry that they will steal it and leave you inrepparttar 132380 cold. Anything you can think of can be improved and a potential partner may force you to do just that. Being first is good. Being best can be much more profitable. Partnerships can be re negotiated or dissolved any time they become unbalanced in their benefits. Beware of legal contracts that make it expensive for any party to dissolve a partnership that isn't working well. Agree to simple, basic buy and sell out options that allow a reasonable recovery of invested capital - time or money. There is no need to create personal enemies from failed partnerships. Every failure is a life lesson and determination will bring you expandable partnerships that work for all members.

Even solitary individuals can benefit immensely from limited partnerships whererepparttar 132381 creator maintains full control of business operations, if s/he is willing to fairly and promptly compensate partners. Conscientious labor can be far more valuable thanrepparttar 132382 cost of its employment, with skillful and imaginative management. This lesson has been lost onrepparttar 132383 corporate world, which sees labor only as a cost to cut.

Much ofrepparttar 132384 American workforce is looking for just two things. Satisfaction withrepparttar 132385 work they do and fair compensation for it. Provide those two things andrepparttar 132386 fringe benefits for all will appear as if by magic.

Give thanks for your cages all you faithful. Without them,repparttar master would have to beat and murder you to keeprepparttar 132371 others in line. Examples I say. We must always make examples. Evil done inrepparttar 132372 name of good is good. Good done inrepparttar 132373 name of evil is evil. Appearance is all that matters. What you do not see does not exist. Asrepparttar 132374 good man said; "I'll believe it when I see it and only then, maybe". 1984 is twenty years late but it is here. Welcome to our brave new world.

You are old and collecting your benefits when it strikes you howrepparttar 132375 college education that doubled your expectation of income and gave you self esteem and confidence; was a fence to keep you onrepparttar 132376 animal farm with minimal complaint. You were told what to want, what really matters and how you could obtain it, all your life. You sacrificed wisdom, love, gratitude, reverence, healing, peace, joy, happiness, laughter, and prosperity for a pen and pasture onrepparttar 132377 farm. Ah, sweet security - Social Security. Have we not all made this trade to stay free ofrepparttar 132378 cages?

You are old and confused. You sensed something was wrong from your earliest memories. Exposed to a lifetime of contradictions, frauds and lies, you could never quite put your finger onrepparttar 132379 wrongness. You learned to fearrepparttar 132380 truth that might land you in a cage. Avoidingrepparttar 132381 cages became your purpose in life. Fear became your constant companion and informed your every decision --avoidance, your earthly mission.

You had no compassion for those who went torepparttar 132382 cages. You were sure they were to be feared when they came out. Those who went torepparttar 132383 cages most certainly deserved it, because they did not make it their life purpose to avoid them, as you did. You have been wise as they have been foolish. You did not care how people were treated inrepparttar 132384 cages. If life in a cage was not enough, there were people nearby to provide additional daily punishments. You did not want to knowrepparttar 132385 details. All is as it should be. Endless punishment for social transgressions must be God's plan for man; otherwise there would be no cages to fear. Inrepparttar 132386 end you patted yourself onrepparttar 132387 back. You lived in a cage of fear you made for yourself. Well done!
