The world today is faced with a common problem in the form of jobs scarcity. Many nations around the world have people who are going around without a definite means of earning some income. This is a serious condition since one cannot survive comfortably in todays without money. The commonly accepted way of getting money is by working for it.
The big question therefore is what happens to the thousands who are roaming the streets or idling at home without a job?
A disheartening thing about the global condition is the fact that many of the people who are out there without jobs are individuals who are well skilled in different areas and they are well qualified to work and get some income. They are people who have spent a lot of time studying and being trained for different professions. They have spent a lot of money to attain these qualifications with the hope of getting a job and a career that will help them earn a decent living.
Due to the need for survival, many people who end up jobless will look for alternative ways of earning survival money. Many times these people may resort to engaging in illegal and criminal ways of getting some money. They may end up being thieves, drug dealers, smugglers, kidnappers, extortionists, or they may end up turning to depraved money making activities such as prostitution or running prostitutes. Since the people who turn to these activities are people who are now well educated, they become very difficult to combat.
Some of the people who end up jobless may give up on life and resort to a life of drugs while others may resort to extreme measures such as suicide or joining terrorist movements.
I happen to be one of the guys who ended up jobless after college. In college I studied to be a nurse. After graduating from college I stayed for a whole year without getting a job. Luckily, I have always been a fitness enthusiast and I managed to fill up the time working as an assistant at the gym owned by a friend.
I loved the occupation and I realized that it might be a long time before I got a job. I decided that maybe I could open my own gymnasium. I loved weightlifting and so I decided to open a gymnasium that specialized in weightlifting.
I would have the best facilities and provide the members with the best weightlifting equipment.
This is exactly what I did with help from my parents who fully supported the initiative. Having a nursing certificate, I was able to quickly get a fitness coaching certificate. I also got a basic certificate in nutrition. I wanted to incorporate nutrition counselling for the members in my gymnasium. My plan was to include a small kitchenette that would have some basic cooking equipment such as electric skillets which I would use to teach my customers how to make healthy foods.
It is now three years down the line since I started by gym, I am no longer seeking for a job.
