All is Not As Well As They Keep Telling Us

Corporate jobs require corporate applications.

For the self-employed, without recent outside the home work history
and recent references, one cannot complete the applications and
submit them.

Small businesses seem lazy. They only want specific experience. When
did jobs become a laundry list of tasks, skills, performance, relentless
striving every hour of every working day forever before and after this
job that pays $9 an hour?

Time was you have a degree, you apply. It's assumed you work hard, know
how to type, use a computer, relate well to people, want to contribute to
the business and help it grow. You're not a low-life. Now everyone is treated
like a closet low-life.

Who would want to work for these paranoid types anyway?

I've spent hours reading self-employment books by guru Bob Kiyosaki. I know he's
written books with Mr. Trump, but I ignore that part, because I need to improve
my motivation and desire to be responsible for my own business, my own bottom
line. That standup sense of self, that spring in your mind and step is what makes it
happen for me.

The barriers from the corporate world are absolutely ridiculous. According to them, I lack
the skills and background to work in a pet store. Seriously? I could manage the stupid place
but can't get my foot in the door because I haven't owned a cat or dog. The employees that
are in there are the laziest simpletons in town. They can barely sweep the floor, and lack
the confidence to manage anything.

The job world is sick. Very sick. America's productivity is kaput.
