As the Director of Agent Acquisition & Onboarding at LiveOps I hear a lot from our independent agents about why they decided to become contractors, and how the freedom and flexibility of being a LiveOps independent agent has improved their lives: from reducing work stress, to giving them more time with family, to allowing them to retire early, or even just giving them the option to sleep in every morning.

The common thread is that by taking control of their work life, these independent agents are able to live the life they want.

I saw this same message reflected in Maynard Webb's recent book Rebooting Work. Maynard is the former chairman and CEO of LiveOps (among other notable accomplishments), and in this book he shares his insights on how work is changing and how individuals can take advantage of these changes to transform the way we work.

A few things really resonated with me in this book:

  1. Working for a company no longer guarantees job security. Some people hesitate to leave the perceived security of a company job, but in today's fast-paced world of mergers, acquisitions, layoffs, and bankruptcy that security may be a myth.
  2. Be accountable for reaching your work/life goals. If you are unhappy with work, you should take control, define what you want, and develop a plan to get there.
  3. Maynard calls this being the “CEO of your own destiny” and offers a framework for developing your plan.
  4. Greater control (not more money) is what makes most people happy. Maynard gives many examples of people who are much happier with their work/life balance when they take control of their destiny.

LiveOps independent agents are in control of their own destiny. They have taken responsibility for their own success and they define that success on their own terms. This is empowering and it can make working hard much more rewarding.

If you are looking for more control over your life I encourage you to check out the opportunities at LiveOps. You may find that this is the first step on your path to a becoming the CEO of your own destiny!

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
