Unemployment figures hit a 17 year high – but there are solutions.
These are figures you hear when you watch the news on television or read the newspapers but they only really hit home when it affects you personally or you meet some of the people it has impacted on.
I attended a Jobs Fair in my local area last week where we had a stand to display our business opportunity. I was absolutely shocked at the number of people who were there, desperate to work, but unable either to get employment or without the necessary capital to set up a business of their own. I was particularly taken aback by the number of 30-50 year olds with successful management backgrounds who, for the first time in their lives, had been made redundant. You could physically see the shock they were experiencing.
What we were able to do on that day was to show them that there are still opportunities out there. The opportunity might not appeal to everyone but what we felt we had done that day was to give people hope. We could show them that for those who dare to make some changes in their lives there are solutions.
