    "Traditional employers should take note: The lifestyle perks are often so appealing that many will forgo income stability, benefits, and even higher pay overall in exchange for the freedom and flexibility they aren't finding at desk jobs"

    I must say, after the last recession, I feel into the pool of "overly qualified" people who couldn't find a job at my level; so, I began consulting. Much more enjoyable and fruitful even with certain challenges. Happy to go back to corporate life, but on my terms

    @Rod Loader, I will not lower myself to Mr. Trump's standards. I think the mistake people are making in the U.S., is giving too much power to the office of the Presidency (regardless of who holds that office). The citizenry of this country must realize that they also have power in determining the direction it should be steered and the President doesn't have Carte Blanche to do as he wishes.

    #10 I don't think you are paranoid, maybe many of us are paranoid then? People get frustrated if the person they voted for didn't win but never in my life have I seen an election take on a life of it's own like this one. It scares many of us. My past experiences with elections, people feel let down or even angry if the person they voted for didn't win but they move on within a day or so after the election ends. Protests have been massive and don't seem to be ending anytime soon, something I've never witnessed either. Calling the media, "The enemy of Americans," quite scary rhetoric coming from a man who is supposed to be leading our nation.
    Rod Loader
    20/02/2017 #10 Rod Loader
    Although the vast majority is peaceful, the thing is that half the nation is protesting, which hasn't happened before. A new standard has been set for what happens after an election. Maybe it is being heavily influenced by the current president. Maybe there are other influencing factors. Maybe I'm just being paranoid. #9

    20/02/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    #7 Well if you mean that more than half our nation is revolting peacefully, that may be the standard. When I think of standards set, it makes me think of a standard that is accepted and followed by the masses; I don't see this being the case right now.

    You raise some excellent points, Rod. One of the most important issues our societies face is to how to choose, implement, then manage change in a representative fashion. I have little faith in our pollies (certainly here in Oz) to do this, while they continue to be 'forced' to tow the Party line and while their numbers comprise so many former point scoring lawyers. It is such a pity that the petty ramblings and kindergartenesque behaviour of our chosen reps are more akin to opposition bashing than representing the people who voted them into power. Who indeed will maintain or rather raise the standard?
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    20/02/2017 #5 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    We used to have more politicians who worked together in a bipartisan manner, this is not the case anymore. When one party has the majority of the House, Senate and yes, even the Presidency it affects more than half our nation because Independents are for the most, not partisan. This President has done nothing to even TRY and defuse the anger within the Nation. He is pandering to those who voted for him and his party (Well, he's been a Democrat too) so not sure what party he really is... but the party he is representing now. I have always voted based on the person and what they are running for not Party first. Too many people in our country focus on the micro issues and they lose focus of the macro issues which affect all of us; I think some people are beginning to realize that. Honestly, I believe that this President and his Administration are setting a new standard. He's a tweetA-holic, he's rude (hello Mr. Prez.. children are watching... by calling all media outlets with the exception of those who seem to mostly support his agendas without a lot of question, the Enemy for Americans is causing more discourse, having some of his own Admin telling the American people we aren't to question the President.. you see where I'm going with this? Well... the new standard is this- there are many people who are protesting for the first time in their lives. I have no clue where we will be in 4 years but I can only hope something draws us closer as a nation, the division is horrible. I don't see #45 doing anything to draw us closer and set a good standard. Time will tell.

    #2 easy fixes work because they are allowed. Basically we trade a non negotiable for a desirable which is dependent on too many variables and ends up as a nothing based on a genuine excuse.

    Why? Because we are driven by what we do not want rather than what we want.

    Let alone governments, society functions this way, we simply cannot allow everyone to be brave, it makes things uncertain and we are too lazy to think.

    I know this is an oversimplification but it is the bedrock of how we function.

    @Devesh Bhatt, your statement, "the public doesnt have it's priorities right and is herded for countless reasons" is so true and each country, state and city has its reasons. I believe, sometimes things are considered 'too hard', like abuse of women and children, and these things are ignored in favour of easier fixes (especially for politicians, who need to impress before the next election). #1

    Standards are built on what we want .

    Often the public doesnt have it's priorities right and is herded for countless reasons.

    Movements which persist actually do because people realise the merit after becoming a part of it ans realising the fallacies to refine a balanced approach. Some due to self correction while most due to criticisms.

    Individuals filter their point of view to acceptable biases which get collectively magnified as a bias initially. The purpose part sets in later. Sadly, this is how it is.

    I wont talk about America but yes in india we would complain about women safety but turn a deaf ear to a child labour act which makes the girl child most vulnerable.
    We would rather march for a bull taming festival before demanding relief from unscrupulous illegal money lenders or proper healthcare or education or for that matter roads, power etc.

    We would not demand transparency in political funding or better law and order but make huge hue and cry if the Govt opposes encroachment or arrests a local godfather.

    I liked your post, related it to what i have seen, even though the connect is pretty thin.

    @Phil Friedman said: 'And women, if I may, have an innate tendency to plan too much and too long, which when it comes to starting their own small business, dissipates the energies required to actually pull the trigger.'

    I agree, actually. I think women may be hired-wired to aim for security. If you ever get a chance to see or read the play 'Defending the Caveman', do. Not only is it hilarious, but it contains some serious home truths.

    'Against that, the pre-discussion and planning may be why a higher percentage of women who do start their own businesses succeed than do men.'

    Yep. That might also explain the success of the mom-and-pop-shop combo.

    #17 Perhaps, I am simply inferring what is not there. On the basis of so much BS on social media about starting your own business -- which for too many people seems to me to involve simply starting to blog and offering content for sale. But I commend you for tackling the subject. A more serious suggestion might be to look at the fact that men are truly from Mars and women from Venus. And women, if I may, have an innate tendency to plan too much and too long, which when it comes to starting their own small business, dissipates the energies required to actually pull the trigger. Against that, the pre-discussion and planning may be why a higher percentage of women who do start their own businesses succeed than do men. Just thinking out loud. Thanks and cheers!

    With all due respect, Aleta, I suggest it is a mistake to see owning one's own as an end in itself. One can want to make a living (or get rich) doing something you really enjoy. Or prefer to be completely in charge of one's destiny. Or have any number of other reasons. But simply to own a business should not be one of them. Especially, if you already have a high-paying job, with benefits and retirement pension. And are relatively happy in that position. IMO.

    More than ever, there is no better time than to start a business. Due to the rapid growth in technology, women and men can gain the knowledge, skills, and know-how. There are several online programs, webinars and professional organizations available. SCORE and the Chamber of Commerce are great places to start. Networking must not only be online, but in-person. Just taking small, baby steps is productive, despite feeling fear or rejection. Never get caught up in numbers. Quality is better than quantity. Finding your target audience is much more beneficial than having a large following. It all comes down to the basics and moving slow yet steady to produce the results you desire. Feel the fear and do it anyhow. It's only (FEAR) False Evidence Appearing Real anyway!

And, why is it what I perceive as really cool ideas come to me in the middle of the night when I have no one to share them with?! By morning my cluttrred brain may forget what I had in mind. I know self doubt is a major road block for me. I always worked for an organization and stsyed home with my kids for a good piece of time. I focused so much on them I think I forgot to focus on what my needs would be when they left home.
