This Is Not Your Parent’s Workplace: The Case for Becoming a Small Business OwnerSusan L Reid
Workplaces, and how we view them, have changed dramatically since the beginning of the 20th century.
Particularly in the last 30 years, the complexity of business has grown enormously, making traditional jobs nearly obsolete. With punishing, productivity-sapping expectations and vise-like deadlines the norm, old assumptions about how to work and how to advance are out of date. The old-school work ethic of doing “whatever it takes" to get the job done is a present-day formula for disaster and burnout.

The Changing Workplace
The Case for Owning Your Own Small Business
Definitely, the trend for going smaller is growing bigger. As large corporations scramble to keep pace with the latest business developments and trends, independent contractors and small business owners are stepping in to fill the gap. Security, peace of mind, and a steady income (once thought only possible by working for a large company) are now being viewed by millions of small business owners as “doable.”
For the individualistic Baby Boomer generation, becoming a small business owner is the mother-load of opportunity. For value-driven, looking-to-make-a-difference-in-the-world Gen Xers, owning a small business is the way to go.
In light of today’s changing workplace, now is a great time to become a small business owner.
