Government Reopens: Entrepreneurs Must Still Arise!

You may have either personally been affected or know someone who has been affected by the recent government shut down that began on December 22, 2018 and just ended after 35 days. Although, the government reopened today, January 28, 2019, lawmakers only have until February 15, 2019 to reach a compromise on the billions of dollars needed for a border wall. The Democrats have refused to grant the Republican request, and President Trump refuses to back down. Mulvaney says, “Trump will secure the border ‘with or without’ Congress”, according to the Washington Post.

While the shutdown standoff continued, many families suffered. This funding lapse is going down as one of the longest shutdowns since 1996, with over 800,000 federal workers affected (costing billions of dollars).

Will the government or any other entity continue to hold the fate of your family in their hands? Whether the government is gridlocked (or not), your life and well-being of your family should not be. You have the power to change the narrative of your story and the trajectory of your life.

We were all born with everything that is necessary to survive on this earth. Yet, we continue to leave our fate and existence in the hands of another person to decide whether we can take care of our families. We have the power to get wealth on the inside of us. When the government shuts down, companies downsize, or you are “fired at-will”, what do you do? Employ your gifts! Yes, put your gifts and talents to work!

Not only is it not wise to put all of your eggs in one basket. It is also not wise to have only one stream of income. We never know when that one stream may dry up. We decide our future and destiny by our action and inaction. We must determine to take action! When there is hardship or a challenge, you must view it as an opportunity to take ACTION. Let it push you into manifesting your potential that has been lying dormant while you have punched the clock day after day. Don’t become discouraged or let it make you feel defeated, Entrepreneur you must ARISE!

History records when there is a shift in the stability of the government and the overall economy, entrepreneurship rises up! Entrepreneurship has been the backbone and foundation that societies have had to survive, rebuild and once again thrive upon.

According to an article by the Foundation for Economic Education, entrepreneurship is the reason for the rebound of the economy after the Great Depression in 1929. The government lowered corporate taxes to allow businesses to invest more into their businesses to increase production and create jobs, which revived the economy.

The Great Recession of 2007 showed a 17% increase in entrepreneurship compared to data gathered in 2004. According to Fairlee (2013), a study conducted in 2009 cited that 57% of Fortune 500 companies started during previous recessions or bear markets.

Well, maybe the government shutdown has not affected you, or any of the economic downturns, it just may be you are no longer fulfilled on your job. Either way, it’s TIME for some ACTION!

Leverage two of your greatest assets: Time and Opportunity!

First things first, determine what gifts, talents and skills you have. What are you excellent at and absolutely love to do? What problems or questions do your gifts, skills, and talents solve?

Secondly, seek to develop and sharpen your gifts. Get a coach, mentor, or apprenticeship, to help you perfect your craft. By the way, this is a lifelong journey of personal and professional development.

Thirdly, develop a business plan, determine the best business structure, establish and register your business with the state. It is best to hire a business strategist or accountant to help you with this process, to ensure you make the best selection for your type of business. Invest in a dynamic marketing agency and you are well on your way!

Yes, 3 steps! These 3 steps do not happen overnight and it is not easy, but it’s worth it. You must put in the work and be diligent about it! You MUST Make It Happen! It is proven time and time again, the economy begins and ends with entrepreneurship and has continued to sustain the economy! So, do not let another entity dictate your destiny! It is time for the Entrepreneur in YOU to ARISE!
