JP morgan is laying off 9,200 people.
Sony will cut 8000 jobs.
And that is only the tip of the iceberg. That is just what I read in today's headlines alone and we all know everyday we read more and more just like this.
It's sad and scary.
It's also a HUGE point for home businesses /mlm/network marketing.
Though to tell you the truth, I just read on the party plan folder that 2 more (home based) companies are shutting down as we speak. That's also a strong reason for having more than one home based business, as some of us do. Some people say they can't run more than one, but in my opinion, it can be almost necessary to support our families.
As far as our fabulous company, Charlie always reminds us that our company is DEBT-FREE and growing each and every year! They have high goals for growth and though they may be reached slower than anticipated due to the economy, the great thing is that we are still growing strong.
People NEED a home business like ours with a feel-good product we all use year round. Tell me who's night is made a little cozier and homier and warmer with a scented candle burning? Makes us all feel better and happier, for sure. Not to mention, our candles are made in America.
