2009 has just been one of those years. Laid off in February after working at a company for almost 6 years, laid off again in August after working for 2 months with a start-up…I decided that it’s time to try something else.
The idea of starting my own business had been sloshing around in my head for a couple of months, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was that I wanted to do. As this year has been one of “self-discovery”, I created a list of what I like to do and what I’ve been told I do well.
entrepreneurship and innovation!
Having been though a tough year myself, being unemployed and all, I can relate to this statement. Going into business for myself had been in the back of my mind for a few months- not just in the back of my mind, but also staring me in the face! While networking to find a job, I had others tell me that I should start my own business. Note to self: When several peers and mentors give you suggestions, give them some serious thought.
I recently came across a new concept for what it is that I do – Employee Leasing. I think most people can relate to this term; if not, let me explain.
I work as a contractor providing specialized services and administrative support to businesses who have work that needs to be done. I share the client’s goals and succeed when they succeed. What are a few of the main benefits of leasing an employee versus hiring someone as a permanent part of your staff?
