What do you do as a fifty-four year old and have been working for a company for over twenty-five years and have no retirement benefits?
This question came up in a conversation and it’s one that will make you go hummmmm!!!
She is college educated and doesn’t even make $32K a year. Yes, she knows every area of the company and whenever she got promoted the money never changed. She has only had three raises in twenty-five years.
It’s very frustrating when someone else comes in and their beginning salary is higher than yours and you performed the same job.
So, whats a girl to do?
Does she take a leap of faith and pursue another job or stay?
On a positive note, if I didn’t know of others at or over the fifty mark that have ventured out to pursue other careers I would say stay. The truth of the matter, it depends where you want to go and what you want to do.
This I do know, you can’t think this is the end. There is always someone willing to hire for experience . I believe you have to stay positive and know that whatever is for you is for you.
We all have purpose.
Maybe it’s time to take the plung….become your own boss and start your own business.
Just a thought…Selah!!!
