You’re a Business Owner Whether You Know It or Not

Have you heard the term “permatemp”? It describes people who seem to be caught in a never-ending cycle of temp jobs, unable to secure full-time status. As you may have noticed, even as the economy recovers from this recession, companies are still not hiring full-time workers. Many are using this permatemp approach to keep people in limbo as temporary workers, while not having to pay them full-time salaries or benefits. posted an enlightening article recently, “We’re All Business Owners Now“, documenting companies’ shift from “relying on full-time employees to a contingent workforce of temps, freelancers, contractors, and part-timers. Not just in low-skill jobs or easily outsourced tasks, either.

Even as the economy “recovers”, this trend is going to continue. So whether you’re currently employed, unemployed, or underemployed, you have to decide if you want to be another victim of corporations’ short-sighted, penny-pinching ways, where disposing of workers is even easier now than it used to be… or if you want to proactively position yourself as the owner of your “personal enterprise”.

Don’t wait to be a victim. You can use entrepreneurial strategies to find a more meaningful and profitable career path. I’ll talk about this more in my next post.
