Description


Create Your Own Job Security: Plan to Start Your Own Business at Midlife teaches now to select, start, and run a series of businesses throughout your lifetime to raise immediate cash when needed, plan for longer term certifications through college or other means, with the ultimate aim of having your own businesses running in the background while you work for others. The ultimate objective is for you to discover work that you enjoy doing so much that you would do it even if no one paid you for it. Once this work is found, find a way to make it profitable and go through the necessary steps of getting a business name, licenses, trademarks, patents, partners, etc. while you are still employed. That way when you get a pink slip instead of a gold watch, you already have your business running and instead of crawling down the dark alley of depression, you can turn the key on your business, stomp on the accelerator and roar down the highway towards a future where you, not someone else, controls your destiny.

About the author


Wm. Hovey Smith grew up as a free-range kid in the rural South. He became an avid reader of many subject materials and ultimately became a store clerk, Professional Geologist, a decorated Combat Engineer Officer, the author of 18 books and a radio host. After working as an Information Scientist for a multinational company, a position he created, he was downsized out of his job and started a new business, Hovey's Knives of China. where he drew inspiration from Chinese bronze knives from 3000 years ago. These he now makes in his own shop in Central Georgia of modern steels for today's cooks and chefs. With these multiple working experiences he conceived of the present book, "Create Your Own Job Security : Plan to Start Your Own Business at Midlife," as a needed title for those already in the work force and those about to begin their working life in the gig economy where jobs are typically going to be short term and there is a danger of being replaced by a robot, automation or from less expensive talent from another country. The message this book has is that it is never too early or too late to start your own company that is tailored to your physical abilities, passions and financial goals. Smith's book is a beginner's detailed guide as how to accomplish these aims.
