Can't find a job?
Invent one instead!
Crazy idea? Think again. Here's what author Tim Ferriss has to say about the matter. Here's a great article along similar lines in The Art of Manliness blog, Be Your Own Boss: 37 Side Hustle Ideas.
It may be better than any job you could ever find.
Look around: every business, organization, and job that you see began as an idea in somebody's head.
What ideas are in yours?
What are your hobbies? What do you care about so intensely that you'd pay to do it?
Invent a vocation doing that!
For example, I founded Making End$ Meet in 1996 because I cared intensely about people and all the angst they suffer about money. I wanted to relieve them and set them free to enjoy the things money can't buy.
I continue to feel that way today. It has been the most satisfying endeavor I could ever imagine, and I would wish such satisfaction for everyone. Please allow me to share the experience and the joy with you by helping you turn what you care about the most into a vocation.
Remember, though, that there must be a market for it, and Michael Gerber's "E-Myth" (E is for Entrepreneur) about the difference between working IN a business and working ON a business. Professional, experienced guidance can help avoid wasteful hazards and pitfalls.
How about this: you tell me what you want to do, and I'll help you make sure there's a market for it, and work ON it so you can work IN it.
Write your own ticket, have a horse to ride on, call the shots, and get help.
