When Barbara Winter’s book “Making a Living Without a Job first appeared in 1993, she introduced the idea that a quiet revolution was going on. This nearly invisible change was being led by millions of people who were questioning how they earn their living. Without any fanfare, people were opting out of conventional jobs and opting into self employment.
“High unemployment rates are not the major factor fueling this revolution” contends Winter. “Many people who are contemplating self employment are motivated by a desire for independence and freedom. Others have an idea for a business or an invention that’s been nagging at them for years. Then there’s the longevity factor that seeing older people wanting to create a new chapter in their lives that does not include idleness. Of course, technology has made it possible to create a business or freelance career that never would have been possible in the past.”
While the desire to join this career revolution is strong, potential participants are often reluctant to investigate further. “Self employment hasn’t been given much attention in our education system” says Winter,” so the majority of us have grown up surrounded by job holders. Never the less, once people have a few basic tools plus some connection with others who are successfully employed, they’re equipped to join the revolution.”
“When I started my first business in 1974, Winter recalls, “I didn’t know another self employed person. The resources we have today didn’t exist. I began writing and speaking about making a living without a job to share what I’d discovered and to encourage others to create their own satisfying and profitable work.”
Barbara Winter is an expert on self employment, author of “Making a Living Without a Job,” editor and publisher of bimonthly “Winning Ways” newsletter and “ Buon Viaggio” blog and a passionate teacher who hosts seminars and workshops across the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom.
