Want a Job? Get a GREEN One…(Available Now)

So, you need a job? Right now? Then get a GREEN job. They are Available Now. They will only GROW in number and size the next couple of decades.

I was unemployed in the 80’s after being laid off from a Fortune 500 company, so I know what it is like for a lot of Americans today. I learned some valuable lessons on how to beat a bum economy.

After looking for another corporate job for years (and getting older) I finally saw reality, gave up sending resumes and became an entrepreneur. That is when I discovered you don’t have to wait for someone to give you a job to make a comfortable living. If I had continued waiting for someone to give me a job I’d still be waiting (and broke).

Today GREEN JOBS are where the action is. And they are available now and represent our fastest and best growth market. My company, for example, is a green company. It sells and installs an energy efficiency product.

When everyone had sales plummeting last year, our sales went UP 500%! We were hiring people and generating economic activity while others were cutting back. This year looks even better. We are getting calls from everywhere, inside and outside of the U.S.

Why? Because SUV’s that get 10 mpg don’t make much sense, but a product that cuts energy use (by cutting solar heat 50-70% and cancer-causing UV 99%) while also protecting windows from bricks hurled at them by burglars (or protesters) or from a bomb blast or a Hurricane IKE breaking glass (costing $40 million in damage to one building in downtown Houston alone) DOES make a lot of sense. It makes sense for our economy, our energy independence and our job creation! This is only one product example of the thousands of new efficiency products that are available that can pay for themselves -- and are creating the new jobs of the 21st Century.

So if you want to get to work now, go get a Green Job – such as designing green buildings, or selling solar Ppnels, installing wind turbines and radiant barriers, selling Security Window Film to cut energy waste or learning how to install it, designing and building new nano-tube high efficiency transmission lines, building factories to produce magnets for a MagLev 300+ mph train in the NY – DC corridor (no rails needed) to compete with China’s, build a space solar collector to feed our power grid with the sun (which would develop our private space transport business) –all these jobs are possible or AVAILABLE NOW.

But it will happen only if you decide to make it happen -- and government keeps (and makes) the right incentives to let it happen.

Being laid off is not the end, but the beginning of personal experience that yes, is painful, but can also open fantastic new doors to unimagined opportunities and results.

When a road ends, change is all that you have left if you want to get back on track. I struggled for many years after being laid off, waiting for someone to give me the job I knew I deserved. It didn’t happen. Only when I created my own job/s did my world improve.

Today I am riding a growing six figure business and we haven’t touched the tip of the iceberg yet.

Tired of not working? Go get your own Green Job today. Build yourself a green future that puts money in your pocket and cuts our energy waste at the same time.

You’ll thank yourself in the future many times over. And it will make America less dependent on foreign sources of energy at the same time. It’s a win-win.
