If you’re one of the millions of Americans out there searching for a job, you’ve probably come across the term “overemployment”. But what is overemployment, and more importantly, how can it help you? Keep reading & watching to find out!

According to Webster’s Dictionary, the definition of overemployment is 1: excessive employment or use in his case the overemployment of the dash seems appropriate — Journal of Accountancy. 2: a condition in which the demand for labor in a country or region exceeds the available supply
overemployment caused by inadequacy of labor and other resources compared with all the work needing to be done. but…we know have another meaning according to the website Overemployed.com. Their definition states, overemployed is a community of professionals looking to work two remote jobs, earn extra income, and achieve financial freedom. Be free from office politics and layoffs. Instead, improve your mental health and negotiate a severance.

Being overemployed can be a good thing. What is overemployment? It simply means working more hours than what is considered full-time for two separate full-time jobs. Usually, this is working more than 40 hours per week. You may be thinking that this doesn’t sound like a good thing, but hear me out. Working more hours can actually help you in several ways.

First, it can help you make more money. This is obvious – the more hours you work, the more money you’ll make. But this can be helpful if you’re trying to save up for something specific, like a down payment on a house or a new car. Every extra hour you work is one step closer to your goal.

Second, working more hours can help you learn new things. If you’re in a position where you can learn new skills, take advantage of it! The more skills you have, the more valuable you are as an employee. This can lead to better job opportunities and salary increases down the road.

Finally, working more hours can simply give you a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment to meet your financial and economic goals. If you’re feeling motivated, why not get overemployed?

That’s right, overemployment can help you! It just takes a little effort, strategic planning to find the right opportunity.

Why your career success is YOUR responsibility

https://anchor.fm/mentor-shelly/episodes/Episode-130-Why-your-career-success-is-YOUR-responsibility-ea7j21 (Listen on the podcast)

You didn’t expect your parents to make you successful as an adult did you? Your parents have done their job of raising you to be a responsible adult….now it’s time to show them what and how you can use all the great principles of adulthood to good use.

As I’m writing this, I also realize that not everyone had the same upbringing or even had parents to teach them about being responsible adults. You have had to learn quite a bit about life on your own, so I understand.

I want all of you to know…no matter your background, past or circumstances, the success or failure you achieve in life is completely and totally, your responsibility and within your control. Once you reach the ripe old age of eighteen (18), you are officially an adult. If your parents or anyone else helps you financially, economically or in any way, it’s a bonus. Be grateful! They are not obligated to help you, so if they do…please do not take it for granted and show some gratitude.

The heights of your #career and #business ventures are completely in your arsenal of control. I want you to take charge of your destiny, but I want you to know something extremely vital. You must have FOCUS and you must HAVE A PLAN to keep your overall career and business development focus in check.

If you do not have a plan or still trying to figure your next career move, then I can certainly help you with that…I have a guide that help you get focused and create a plan for your career venture or business development. You can access the DREAM CAREER GUIDE by going here.
