Have More Fun With Flextime or Your Own Online Business - Wake the Fun Up

Have More Fun With Flextime or Your Own Online Business

If you're an employee dreaming of more fun and freedom, it's time to leave the traditional 9-5 behind. Most people are seeking work that brings them joy and the freedom to design their lives as they see fit. In today's rapidly changing world, 9-5 work is increasingly becoming a thing of the past.

In this article, we’re going to highlight three pros and cons of working for an employer on a flextime schedule or working for yourself on your schedule.  At the end of this article we will share our story and why we chose to own an online business.

How Work Has Changed in 2024


The Rise of Flextime Jobs and Work-Life Balance

The trend towards flextime jobs is undeniable. Employers are recognizing the value of offering flexible working arrangements, acknowledging that high productivity is not confined to the traditional office environment or hours. Flextime arrangements not only contribute to a better work-life balance but also lead to increased job satisfaction.

Why Flextime Could Be Right For You

  •  Some Schedule Control: More freedom to work your schedule around individual needs   and responsibilities.
  •  Increased Flexibility: Commute outside peak times and spend less time on the road.
  •  Better Productivity: Flextime provides the opportunity to do the same job in less time.

Why Flextime Jobs May Not Be Right For You

  •  Time Constraints: You’re still answering to a boss, required to meet deadlines and   following company rules.
  •  Limited Freedom: You are still required to work within established business hours. 
  •  Limited Earnings Potential: Restrained hours could limit ability to maximize variable   income.

Online Entrepreneurship Is An Alternative

Online entrepreneurship offers an appealing alternative to flextime roles. Imagine a life where you choose your hours and where you work. Whether it's from the comfort of your home, a quaint cafe in Italy, or a beach in Bali, your business moves with you. However, online entrepreneurship is not for everyone.

The Perks of Running Your Own Online Business

  •  Total Schedule Control: You decide when work fits into your life, not the other way   around.
  •  Unlimited Earning Potential: Your efforts directly benefit you, and there is no cap on   what you can earn.
  •  Pursuing Your Passion: Build a business around what you love doing; every day can be   as fulfilling as it is profitable.

The Challenges to Running Your Own Online Business

  •  Unpredictable Income: It takes time to build sustainable income online and everyone’s   journey is different.
  •  Steep Learning Curve: It sometimes takes determination and resilience to overcome the   learning curve.
  •  Change Is Difficult: Starting something new requires stepping out of your comfort zone   and this takes courage. 

We Chose to Start Our Online Business Because:

  •  Automated Income: No more trading time for money. Put the right systems in place,   learn how to make one sale and its possible to make 1000s of sales
  •  Mentorship: We joined a Community of online entrepreneurs and had access to mentors who had already been successful online. We learned from others and saved time and money.
  •  Change is Upon Us: The digital/knowledge era is here to stay. Resist change and be     left behind. We invested in ourselves and created a future we're passionate about.

We are Executive Recruiters and for over twenty years we have watched business evolve with technology in ways we couldn’t imagine. We have watched countless employees be let go and left behind because they didn’t keep their skills current. We didn't want this happening to us.

We watched this free video training and gained insight into the online business journey. Watching these videos gave us an overview of what’s possible and how our life and work experience would contribute to our success. By watching these videos we took a small step towards understanding what’s possible in this digital era. 

How Will You Leave 9-5 Behind?

As the numbers above illustrate, the world of work has changed.  When the pandemic brought the world to a grinding halt, we collectively were given a glimpse of how work could be different. Together we were able to see beyond what is to what could be and there was no putting the gene back in the bottle.

Some employers want the world to go back to the way it was, yet employees are resistant. Most employees are looking for new ways to work, allowing time for more fun and freedom. Ask yourself, do you want to work flextime for someone else or work online in your own business for yourself? Only you will know the answer that is right for you.

The benefits of running our own online business far outweigh the hurdles. Our online business has turned our dream of freedom, flexibility and personal fulfillment into reality.
