Market Research – You have nothing to lose and everything to gain
You don’t need to own your own business to be an entrepreneur. You can tap your inner entrepreneur by treating the job you have now like it’s your own business – something you create for your job, could become another business, job or revenue stream. For example, if you plan meals and outings for coworkers, you can create a part-time job or gig for yourself as an event planner.
This is what people are talking about when they mention the “gig” economy. Gigs are short term contracts for specific tasks or assignments which can supplement or replace regular employment. All the skills and experiences you develop at work, are sought-after in the marketplace.
The biggest difference between being a worker and an entrepreneur is identifying opportunities and turning them into income. Do a web search and look up “market consultant”, “customer satisfaction specialist”, and many others and you may find that you already have the skills necessary to achieve many of these highly sought-after positions. Your next step would be to check Indeed, Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace to look for postings seeking your services. If there are no postings, you could do research or create surveys for your existing network to see if a market exists for you to market your skills. Why not start today? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Creating a Questionnaire or Survey using the FactFinder Solution powered by Jitsutech is very easy. Not only can you be confident that the response data is anonymous, your safely hosting the data on Canadian Servers which is a clear bonus!
