A new year can mean so many different things to different people. While I may have given up on making unrealistic resolutions, I am optimistic that new and wonderful things will be happening in 2017. My family is well and the future is bright here at LiveOps.
Unfortunately, there are people faced with a lot more uncertainty as the new year rolls in. Sears, Macys and Kmart have announced store closings that will leave many retail professionals out of work. I sympathize with the uncertainty they will soon face.
Many LiveOps independent agents tell us that they chose to become an agent following a lay-off or other unexpected life change. For some, our work-from-home opportunity was a temporary lifeline, but for others it was the first step on a new path.
If you know anyone who is affected by lay-offs, why not tell them about LiveOps?
Our work-from-home opportunities are great for someone trying to quickly fill an employment gap or looking to start a new career as his or her own boss. With LiveOps you can start earning money within a few weeks, keep your skills sharp and take some of the pressure off finding permanent employment. You may even find that you love the freedom of being an independent contractor so much that you never go back to the daily grind again.
