Employment Idea For Felons

If you ever been in trouble before and have a criminal record, then finding a job much less a good job can be difficult. I have an employment idea for felons that I came up with after receiving a traffic felony seven years ago, for driving to fast. I was working for a company that part of the job description was driving a company vehicle. This was a good paying job and the company had to let me go because I lost my license and could not drive the company van. With this good paying job I had a lot of bills that had to be paid. I went looking for a job that would pay me enough to cover my bills. I thought with my experiences I would be able to find a job with no problem.

Boy was I in for a wake up call. I kept getting turned down for the felony that I received. I had a little money to survive on for a little while so I started looking for an online business to start. I did a lot of research and found two of the most popular types of businesses to start that was not get rich quick scams. One was drop shipping that I ruled out because all the customer interaction that was involved, not to mention the start up cost.

The other business opportunity was internet marketing. I did all the research that I could do on these businesses. Most of these businesses tried to up sell you the tools it takes to start your business, after you join. I illuminated these businesses after checking with the better business bureau.

I found a internet marketing business that I felt was a good choice after all the research that I did. Now I am here to tell you that I have no marketing experience at all. The company that I joined has a training program that teaches you step by step how to start your business. They show you how to build your website with easy to follow directions. After you get your website built than they teach you how to drive traffic to your site and before you know it your on your way to owning your own business.

If you have a felony, your life is not over you can become anything that you want to become whether it is owning your own business or just being successful in life. This is just something that you might want to consider doing. This is what I am doing and I am on my way to having a career, again that I am proud of. I am not tell you to quit your job you have now, but this is a very inexpensive way to start a business.

Keep your head up in what ever you do I wish you good luck and do not let that felony keep you from succeeding.
