As OBAMACARE approaches Americans are scrambling for answers. With health care cost inevitably on the rise many businesses are having to make some tuff decisions. Although many large companies are taking a huge hit, like Delta Air Lines who in June wrote a letter to the Obama administration complaining that it’s healthcare cost would rise to nearly $100 million in 2014, they will continue providing health insurance for their employees. The same can’t be said for everyone though. Many small businesses who understand something our government evidently doesn’t, that to remain in business you must make a profit, can not afford to take the financial blow that Obamacare brings. As a result we will be seeing many business cutting employees down to 28 hr weeks. There are many people scratching their heads trying to figure out what steps to take next to keep the bills paid and food on the table. THE WORLD AND ECONOMY IS CHANGING QUICKLY. To keep up you will have to adapt. Small businesses are great at solving problems and this problem will be solved as well. THE SOLUTION- for many small businesses is to cut back as many hours as they have too, then contract everything out that they can. For example if I have a project that requires a web developer and an internet marketer instead of getting my employees to handle everything like normal I just hop online and go to one of the trusted freelance websites and hire two people to complete the project for a slightly higher rate than what my employees hourly rates would have been. That’s good news and bad news at the same time. Freelancers are going to get a hefty pay increase because of increased demand. And employees will have to learn to be more efficient and effective as their bosses get used to hiring projects out. But Business must go on. So here is a call to all employees, don’t get mad at things you can’t control but learn to control what you can. You were hired to do a job and do it well. You have talents and skills. Use them. Don’t blame the obamacare or the economy. (You can blame obamacare if you really want to, just don’t let it stop you from taking personal responsibility for your own income.) Here is a good one, don’t blame the entrepreneurs just become one. If you are trying to figure out what to do here is your answer!!! Find a problem and solve it. That’s how your company was started and that is how you can start your own. Knowing now that your next 6 months is going to change drastically go ahead and begin learning everything you need to know to run a successful freelance business. Or a successful business in general. Obamacare may be a great blessing to our country, when great problems arise great solutions are born. I personally believe that the entrepreneur spirit working in each and every one of is what America needs to not only survive this time but to take our country to a new level of greatness. If you know anyone who needs to read this, who needs to prepare for the next shift in our economy then please pass it along. I would love to hear your feedback and what you believe is the best solutions for those who will be taking the direct hit from obamacare.
