Afraid of getting fired? Fight back. Why not start a small business?

Anita Campbell recently wrote about 10 Small Business Trends for 2010. In her article, Ms. Campbell discussed 10 trends that small businesses are likely to adopt this year. Among these 10 trends, she mentioned there will be a sharp rise in the number of sole proprietorships in 2010.

In the aftermath of the recent global recession, either due to desperation or sheer inspiration, many who recently lost their jobs will use their severance pay and the skills they have learned on the job to start a small business. A lot of these start up business may even go as far as to compete with their former employers, raising questions of business ethics and unfair trade. If the "big boys" were so afraid of the "new players", maybe they should not have fired them in the first place!

Getting fired is NOT the end of the world! You don't just curl up and die. NO! You fight back! You start a small business and you become even more creative and more resourceful than before. Suddenly, you are no longer working for a bunch of people who never really cared about you. Getting fired, you now have the opportunity to work for YOURSELF! Start a business and you now have the luxury of earning as much as you want for yourself. Freed from the limits of the bundy clock and a regimented 9 to 5 job, you enter a whole new exciting phase in life when you start a small business. It's not going to be easy, but five years from now you can proudly say, "Getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me!".

Of course, you can always go down on your knees and ask the boss not to fire you...

  1. Yeah I agree, "Getting fired is NOT the end of the world". If you dont want your job or having a problem with your boss, you can start your own business.
