Many people over the years, mostly through no fault of their own, have been laid off. Many people that have been laid off are still relatively young and capable. Although they may be of a mature age, they may still have at least another twenty or thirty years or so ahead of them as productive and active men and women. These days, instead of squandering the severance package and instead of eating into the pension plan, many men and women are venturing into the entrepreneurial space.
You take a leaf out of the book that many of your young upstarts, otherwise known as your millennials, are still writing, and you work your way up from there. Solid entrepreneurial advice suggests not only going into a market area that is potentially lucrative but going into something that you have a keen or vested interest in. You may have worked as a chartered accountant for most of your life but you have always had a secret passion for cars.
Perhaps the chartered accountant is not such a good example in the sense that he or she will be amongst the most professional and qualified and the chances of him or her being laid off should be extremely remote. And should that ever happen, it should not be long before he or she is able to get back on his or her feet so to speak. Perhaps a bookkeeper or accounts clerk then. Either way, there’s a good head for figures.
Something you would always need if you were venturing into the entrepreneurial space. A popular choice in this area is that of running a fuel station. But to ensure that it becomes a successful mini-industry, it does require some fuel station construction, in more ways than one.
