The Federal Treasurer said recently “We are a nation of lifters, not leaners.” Yet we hear reports about senior Australians having to work well past the current age of retirement doing a job they don’t want to do.
Almost every night you see the stories on TV and in the papers about companies closing down. The big companies make the headlines. But dozens of smaller operations disappear with only the employees and their families knowing what it’s like to lose their job.
We know it is spring time when the days are longer, the weather is warmer and the garden gets excited. Plants which have been quiet for months suddenly get a new lease of life. The lawn which has hardly needed a mow in ages now needs a haircut.
Yes it’s cold & wet & windy outside and therefore we tend to stay indoors near the heating. But your poor garden doesn’t have that luxury – it’s stuck outside in all weather. It’s probably looking at you indoors and wondering if you’re ever going to come and visit.
It seems that every time we turn on the news today we hear about companies closing, or moving offshore and giving workers their final notice. Losing your job can be shattering. Finding another job may only make the nightmare worse. But there is some light at the end of the tunnel – you can become your own boss and never have to worry about it again.
Finding a new career can be tricky. But when you settle for a franchise from a proven operation, you get peace of mind knowing you’ve chosen the best, plus the chance to be your own successful boss. The Grey Army has a magnificent reputation in providing expert and experienced services in handyman, gardening, painting, carpentry, concreting, in fact any home and commercial maintenance requirement.
So we come to the start of another year and you’re off to work. You’re off to the daily grind with the same old, same old work situation. You may be in a job you don’t like. You may be in a situation where you believe your talents are not recognised. You’re in a rut. Well, there is a better way.
