It’s very important that you start to understand this phenomenon and take steps to change the way you look at employment and earning money.

I won’t get into the nitty gritty of the new job market in this post, but I do recommend a few good books that  can help you get a better grasp on the situation along with showing you how to find a career you can be passionate about. (The following are affiliate links)

“Quitter- Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Dream Job” by Jon Acuff

“48 Days to the Work You Love- Preparing for the New Normal” by Dan Miller.

“Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk

These books will help you recognize:

  • How the job market is changing
  • How to recognize your own unique talents that are valuable to the rest of the world
  • How to develop your own customized plan for your career that will propel you into your best future.

At the end of the day, cutting back on latte’s will not solve your money problems.

It takes much more effort and planning to get the job done the right way when you’re struggling financially. But when you have a good plan in place that tackles the heart of your money problems...

You WILL start to turn things around.

You WILL start to prosper financially.

Have you ever cut back on your expenses, only to find that this didn’t totally solve your problem?

Tell me about it in the comments. I’d love to hear about your experience.
