IS IT TIME FOR A CAREER CHANGE – CONCRETE LIFTING? HMI REP Nov 22, 2021 0000 IS IT TIME FOR A CAREER CHANGE – CONCRETE LIFTING? 2021 Saw an Unprecedented Change in Careers and the Trend Is Forecasted to Continue Annie Baeten As I observed the individual introductions at the HMI Discovery and Training Seminar last week I was struck by the growing diversity of people exploring our new business opportunity. We always enjoyed a reasonable percentage of dramatic career changers but the contemporary experience is different. Last week I heard people say: “law enforcement is not what it used to be” and “the Covid mandates have cost me my job!” Over past months I can recall: pilots, ministers, health care workers, chefs and a myriad of people from other vocations attending our seminar to explore a new career. The revelation offered above motivated me to do a little research on what is really happening in our changing economy. A recent “Forbes” article noted some interesting predictions. Hatred Of Zoom Will Increase Layoffs Will Continue Company Loyalty Will Decrease Job Hunts Will Take Longer Boomers Will Retire Earlier (and Seek a Second Career) Burnout Will Increase Another “Forbes” article I review was titled “The Pandemic Fuels Growth in Entrepreneurship and a Start-Up Frenzy!” A “New York Times” article I saw was titled “Start-up Boom in the Pandemic is Growing Stronger!” Here I learned Americans filed paperwork to start 4.3 million businesses last year, according to data from the Census Bureau, a 24 percent increase from the year before and by far the most in the decade and a half that the government has kept track. Applications are on a pace to be even higher this year.” There is nearly limitless information and statistics supporting the career changing trend. Clearly things are changing and very fast. A bi product of the pandemic is a change in work life and probable career change for many. I now understand why we are seeing a growth of unique career changers at our seminars. It is logical as HMI offers: Free Training and Support in a transition A relatively low cost of entry into a new career. An opportunity to be a “owner operated” one person business where people can control their own destiny at their own pace An opportunity to work outside with effort which is not physically taxing Potential for INCREDABLE PROFIT MARGINS Is it time for YOU to follow the trend and explore OPTIONS by calling HMI?
