Many Americans that aren't finding the hourly pay they are used to getting are simply moving to places they've always wanted to live. Lowering overhead and working for less.

With the Dow closing above 16,000 points for the first time ever, Americans everywhere should be celebrating their newfound prosperity. Unfortunately for many Americans, the success on Wall Street is not trickling down to success on main street. In fact many Americans are still struggling to find a job or stay in their homes.

The official unemployment rate in America is 7.3%, but according to Shadowstats.com the employment rate is closer to 25%. The people who stopped looking for work, who's unemployment benefits expired, or who never started looking in the first place is making up a larger chunk of unreported stats.

With the job market sour, some Americans are making lemonade. The world of online freelance is booming, with new opportunities every day for people willing to work for five dollars a gig on Fiverr.com or for virtual assistants on Odesk.com or for sales people on Outbounders.com.

"We are in a new era of industrialized society. We have gone from the factor worker, to the office worker, to the home based worker. With the uncertainty around long term investments, currency stability or mandatory insurance- people need to be willing to be more flexible in their hunt for stable employers," says James Rick, CEO of Outbounders.com

With over 2,000 active clients and 1,600 staff since the start of this year, Outbounders.com is the fastest growing solution for companies seeking to hire outbound sales people.

Its easy to see why. Employers can listen to audio recordings and hire staff directly from the web site in a matter of seconds. They can opt to pay per hour, or commission only.

They can end a contract at any time and both parties can leave feedback for each other so future employers and contractors know who they are dealing with.

Many Americans that aren't finding the hourly pay they are used to getting are simply moving to places they've always wanted to live, lowering their overhead and working for less.

Take Ed Windsor for example, he moved from the Tampa, Florida to Costa Rica, he initially started out working for less hourly pay to build his profile and now he gets paid more working from his home in Costa Rica than what he made working in an office in the US.

The world is changing, and rather than hope the world will change to suit you, you have to change to suit the world. Opportunities are everywhere, you just have to know where to look and be willing to take new approach.
