)-- When Barbara J 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 who were questioning how they earn their living.Without any fanfare, people were opting out of conventional jobs and opting into self employment.
Over the past decade, the numbers have been quietly growing. A study by the US government reported that an estimated 38 million of us now work at home. The study also noted that these statistics are difficult to verify since many of these workplace revolutionaries have gone about their business while staying out of the spotlight.
"High unemployment rates are not the 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 has 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 doesn't include idleness. Of course technology has made it possible to create a business or free lance career that would never 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."
