In the 60’s …..
A Gallon of regular gas cost about 20 cents per gallon
The least expensive Honda motorcycle cost $215.00
You could rent a car for $6.00 plus 6 cents per mile
You could buy a 3 bedroom house with a mortgage payment of less than $200.00 per month
Buy a 1,000 square foot house for less than $10,000
You could take 40 kids to the Saturday Matinee for .50 admission
A small ice cream cone at the Dairy Queen cost 10 cents.
A hamburger at McDonalds was 15 cents, coke was 10 cents, french fries were 12 cents.
Burger King Whoppers cost 39 cents
A single person could stay at the Motel 6, for one night for $6.00 in 1968.
No college text book cost more than $20.
Bicycle tires cost less than 3.00
I’m not going to bore you with statistics. The cost of EVERYTHING has gone up from the 60’s to today.
So what does that leave for YOU and your Family? NOT very much!
and what can you do about it?
You can continue as you are, with little return on your sweat equity, or join a home based business company. There are a gazillion to chose from, but my thinking is, you want to join one with stability, a proven track record, a lot of happy members, and.. very important.. one that pays you well.
Everyone you speak to will tell you theirs is the best, so a word of caution… do your research before you jump. What works for others may not work for you.
And the only way to increase your tax deductions (which puts you in a lower tax bracket) , keep more in your pocket and get more back at the end of the year, is to work for yourself.
Over time, the historical average tax refund has gone up and down, but is on a recent downward trend. Here is a look at the last 6 years.
- Average 2008 Refund: $2,728
- Average 2009 Refund: $3,036
- Average 2010 Refund: $3,003
- Average 2011 Refund: $2,913
- Average 2012 Refund: $2,803
- Average 2013 Refund: $2,651
- Average 2014 Refund: $2,783
If you do the math, the average tax refund works out to $3319.
This means that Uncle Sam received an average of $3319 in
interest-free loans from 109,499,000 lenders (aka taxpayers) for a combined $305.7 billion.
Middle-age and older workers make up a relatively large percentage of the self-employed and they worked fewer hours.
Many people who start home businesses are looking for lifestyle businesses. They don’t want to work sixty hours per week. They want to be able to take time off. Operating a home business allows them to do just that, have more Family time, take longer vacations and fore-go the worry of “I can’t affords”.
There are so many more advantages, All you have to do is look at your current home life to see how working from home would be a benefit.
I will however list a few:
Personal freedom from spending hours in traffic to and from work every day. More time for friends and family.
You get to keep the money you make. It’s a simple principle: the harder you work, the more money you make. Your earning potential is directly proportional to your performance, so you don’t have to wait for a raise or a promotion.
Less stress. It’s a little less stressful when you know you can stay home to care for a sick child. No Daycare Costs.
I could go on and on about why working from home is better, I won’t. But what I will tell you, is that I Love it! and would not trade that rat-race for anything ever again!
I wish you much success, in whatever endeavor you undertake… should you chose to align yourself with what I do, I can guarantee you will have a lot of fun! Meet some very interesting Teammates I am honored and privileged to call Family & Friends, and of course… make money too!
Learn how I’m able to stay at home with my Family, as sole-provider
and single Mom & Grandmom..
To be successful you need to be with a Team that values you as a
person, in a Company that is Family orientated, and with a Mentor
that is genuinely interested in your welfare.
