Is it just me or are more people striking nowadays?
You have the Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild of America striking against Hollywood and their latest batch of overfunded and underdeveloped movies that are lucky to rise above mediocrity.
In my local town, in northeast Ohio, you have an entire inner city schooling system on strike.
And there are rumors of the automobile industry and flight attendants taking note of what our brave celebrities are doing.
Meanwhile, you have people like my 16-year-old who makes over $13 an hour working his first job. At Wendy’s.
In other words: The world’s going to hell in a handbasket.
Not a terribly shocking surprise, but something that you may just be able to help with.
Well, after hearing about all these strikes, it made me realize:
When was the last time you heard about a bunch of freelancers going on strike?
Or agency owners?
Of course, when you are solely responsible for putting food on your table for your family, you don’t have the “luxury” of being lazy.
When you know you have a gift from the man upstairs, it’s your moral duty to give it to as many people as you can.
And so, the way you can help fight back against our backwards society is simple.
And besides benefiting the greater society, it also makes a more direct benefit to you.
Hire more freelancers.
Work with more agencies.
Start more partnerships with other entrepreneurs.
Of course, this won’t save the world overnight.
But you never have to worry about these groups striking. You know each and every month you pay for their services, that it’s an investment, not a cost. (Something that would probably help the Writers Guild, but I’m no meteorologist.) And by outsourcing your weaknesses to double down on your strengths, you can spread your gift with far more people. Grow your wealth far faster. And enjoy the freedom that is your God-given right—without becoming a snowball of stress and worry.
Something to think over as you go about your day. (It just so happens I’m writing this on Labor Day weekend…)
And if you’re ready to see how a freelancer can do all this for you, your business, and your family?
