It’s Time for a Season of Change and Love What You Do!
By: Bailey Holtz
As the seasons change and we transition from the free-wheeling summer months to the cooler fall months, it is a time to think about change. Just as the bright green leaves around you transform into majestic yellows, reds and oranges, it’s the perfect time to transform your life too! It is a good time to ask yourself some tough questions: have I gotten everything I can out of the role at my current job? Would my life be noticeably better if I had more time for myself/family, a shorter commute and greater independence? Is it time for a change?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then maybe this is YOUR “season of change”! A time to take a leap toward greater joy and flexibility in your life. But—and we know this all too well—the idea of making a huge career change can be scary.
Luckily, Pure-Ecommerce has the tools you need to make your transition to ecommerce entrepreneurship smooth, easy, and even fun. Continue reading as we show you why NOW is the right time for YOUR season of change. Plus, how we can help you start an online business and love what you do!
Harness the Power of the Internet
The internet has completely transformed the way we move about in the world – from research to commerce to connecting with other people. The world wide web has improved the lives of millions in ways we never could have conceived thirty years ago. With such a powerful tool at our disposal, that’s why it’s is time for you to explore becoming a part of the amazing online marketplace.
Consumers are heading to ecommerce stores for convenience and cost-savings while factors like faster Internet speeds and cheaper devices are facilitating this process. Plus, it is shown the number one reason consumers love to shop online is that they can shop all hours of the day!
Here are so interesting statistics showing the continued growth of ecommerce.
Digital Buyers Worldwide:
- In 2014 – There were approximately 1.32 billion digital shoppers.
- In 2019 – This is expected to reach 1.92 billion this year, accounting for a quarter of the world population.
- In 2021 – The number of digital shoppers is expected to reach 2.14 billion.
Percentage of Retail Sales:
- In 2019 – Ecommerce sales are expected to account for 13.7 percent of retail sales worldwide.
- In 2021 – Sales are expected to make up a whopping 17.5 percent of retail sales worldwide by 2021.
Unlike a brick-and-mortar store, ecommerce allows people to have a vast variety of products at their fingertips. This is an amazing aspect of owning an online store as you are able to reach people not only in your own town but almost anywhere – it’s truly the power of the internet!
Seize Control of Your Life
If you’ve bought into the idea of working from home, the next step is to become comfortable with the idea of becoming your own boss. This is extremely exciting but may sound a little scary too! The little voice in the back of your head might be saying “I don’t know how to be a boss!”, “What if something goes wrong?” or “What if I fail?”.
Before you allow yourself to be sucked into a quagmire of fear and negativity, consider what your present situation looks like…
If you’re commuting to a regular day job, you don’t have a whole lot of control over your own day. Quartz at Work makes a compelling argument against the 9-to-5 workday, citing our shared language about our work as evidence of our aversion (“Working for the weekend,” “TGIF,” and “Sunday Scaries” are just a few examples of this type of language). As humans, we simply chafe against strict schedules and inflexibility. This leads you to think about making a change, right?!?!
Or if you’re a parent who would like more flexibility and freedom in your schedule. If you would rather attend your child’s sporting event, ballet practice or school play than go into a late day meeting where you are asked to do more work for the same amount of compensation. Frustrating, right? You feel like you are always pulled into two different directions! Well, maybe now is the time for you to think about working from home and love what you do!
Maybe you’re on the verge of retirement or already retired and you are looking for a business opportunity to bring in additional income. Plus, you would like to keep yourself busy in retirement, as well as, continue learning and striving to live your best life.
Or maybe you’re just ready to seize control of your life and love what you do! As you consider moving forward take time to reflect:
- Do you remain in your current situation because your scared or unsure of how to get started?
- Do you stay at your job because you feel you are pleasing some nebulous authority figure?
- Do you continue down the same path because it is what is familiar to you?
- Is this your “season of change”?
- Are you ready to take control of your life?
Now all you need to do is decide to take the first step so you can begin to rule your life and love what you do!
