Its Getting Harder to Find Part Time Work

Seems that there are more and more people out of work, and now comes word its getting harder and harder to find part time work. What used to be a nation full of jobs and the "American dream " is turning into the rich and the poor.

What happened?

There are many reasons our country has ended up where it is today and to pick out any one reason would not be fair or realistic. What is realistic is the American Dream of owning your own home and raising your family in a middle class setting is almost gone by the wayside. Today's lifestyle is either go go go or else and at this pace many are ending up with early heart attacks and unable to even find part time jobs.

What can we do?

This writer could sit here and preach all kinds of solutions but the reality of this whole mess is really the break down of the family. We have become so distracted by survival that we have lost the reason for the survival in the first place. If we are forever going through life working ourselves to death to make someone else rich and do not take the time to live ourselves what good are we doing? This kind of mindset leads to unhealthy stress, unhealthy eating habits and on and on.

My eye opener!

I was one of the above and ran myself to the point of heart failure and poor health, but I did survive to get another chance that I will not pass up. I made the decision that I wanted to stick around for awhile. My view of life changed so much after waking up in the hospital and seeing the looks in my families eyes, wondering if I was still me, and I made the decision right then and there it was time to make some serious changes, and I did.

My Solution

I found that I could not work full time in any physical sense, so I needed to start looking for part time work. Finding a simple morning job I can do was no simple task, but I was lucky and found the right work, leaving me with many free hours available to dedicate to rebuilding my family life and work from home.

I now work from home along with my part time morning job and life is pretty cool. My stress level is so much less and I get to be with the people I love and no longer am effected by the middle class crunch. I have created my own middle class right in my living room. I can say from experience that for me working at home is the way to go, and I will soon be doing this full time, all while being surrounded by family, which is where this country needs to be headed.

Definitely IM is the way to go! This country can be very cruel to you if you don`t have money. Women sneer at you, police harass you, and everyone generally believes you are meant to be a loser all your life when you are poor as a young adult. Right now, I am fighting as hard as I can to succeed! Best of luck to you too, Shawn!

This is exactly what my trouble is. I can't find anyone who will hire me at all. Finding a full-time job is even worse, and part-time jobs, every man and his brother is going after those. I'm losing everything I own. It's making not be able to focus on my work online and that has ground nearly to a halt. I'm about to lose my WA membership because I can't come up with the funds to pay for it. It has been this same song and dance throughout my stay at WA. I know folks are tired of it and my stuff doesn't get read very much anymore. I have not made a dime yet in all the time I've been at WA. My health is going down and I'm about to settle for a lower form of existence. I guess I had my chance and blew it. I am happy for you that you've got balance in your life. I have fallen off the scales and making about 17% of poverty level. Not fun. Not anything to be proud of. I think my heyday at WA is over. Even if I do find a way to make the subscription, my reputation is gone at WA. I have wasted some important people's time over there and have chosen to put a stop to it. Hopefully I can recover and regain my dignity (if I ever had this) and not hit the ground at full speed.

Ease up a bit Daniel. I know, times suck right now and you have not wasted any of my time whatsoever. When things are not working sometimes we need to step back and take a look, and I know you are doing that right now. Maybe it is time to run with this. You are a great writer, and you are also a great researcher, and there is a market for those qualities. Why not start a free account iof you loose this one, and get a site up promoting your best qualities that can make you income asap? Invest in yourself Daniel!

I have been trying this all along. Perhaps you are right. I have been overwhelmingly depressed over this whole thing. I try to get my mind off this by having written a review this morning. If I lose this account, I lose all of my websites. They're all on WA and I won't be able to put them back on Host Gator, not without funds. In spite of knowing about the processes of becoming an entrepreneur and using my mind to do this, the entire thing evades me. I've watched many people come to WA and blow me away in performance. I've had two heavy hitters come to me and offer one-on-one help to me to no avail...and both have given up on me. For the latter, it's probably the other way around where the person has actively advised that I look at this from a ball-carrier's perspective, looking past the obstacles and getting the ball to the end zone. I have failed miserably at this. I don't blame anyone helping me for assessing that it's probably just better to help those who are actually worthy of it and not so laden with issues. I've gotten back up and tried again and again. My current campaign, like the rest, isn't doing a thing. I've had the ball in my hand and have run many times with it. I've been tacked every time thus far. After years of trying to do this stuff, it's wearing me out. Does Einstein's formula for insanity apply here? How many times should I bang my head against a brick wall and hope to break on through? I've even tried to go around this wall, but I find myself blocked.

Thanks for sharing! It's great that you're sharing how you work from home and that working at home works. Good info for anyone but especially for those who live a life full of stresses. The most common first symptom of heart trouble is dropping dead. So your article can be a way for some of your readers to skip the reality of that particular symptom! Focusing on being well is way better than stabilizing symptoms;)
