Addressing Problems in the Offline World

I would like to invite you to the discussion of addressing problems in the offline world where we shall examine some of the significant things that affect families with members who seek employment in the overseas.

Addressing problems in the offline world has two concerns why families are incredibly engaged with employment abroad.  First, the economic instability of the family, second the lack of employment they face in their own country.  These two will then result in issues that need to be addressed.

To enlighten our ourselves and the populace why the online business plays an important role in the life of our families, let’s take a look at the following:

 I.  Working Overseas, Cause of Family Breakups

Addressing Problems in the Offline World-applying for employment

One of the reasons why family breaks up is because of working abroad on either one of the husbands and wives. Nothing can supplant time for each other a husband and wife have and are together in a home.

A separate couple working in the far distance can aggravate infidelity due to attraction towards another of the opposite gender.  When consummation of married life is barred by the distance it may open an opportunity to infidelity simply because the couple doesn’t have time for each other.

 It is a public knowledge that some of the broken families mostly of young spouses have cohabited with another man or with another woman just because they were far away from each other.

Addressing Problems in the Offline World-Family break ups

So why go to a far place and leave your family if there is a way you can earn income on your own time, in your own home, and at your own pace.  It is wise to save a relationship for this is what most of us had in mind when we get married.  We want to be faithful to our own promises which were before the congregation, to the Officiating Ministers or to the Judge.

 We want to be faithful to our own promises which were pronounced before the congregation, to the Officiating Ministers or to the Judge, and to a God who instituted marriage.

It is a fact that distance makes the heart fonder and when that someone is unreachable it is also a fact that it is easy to be swayed by temptation.

 The family is part of a home where you belong and when that is broken you will no longer have one to welcome you with open arms.

 The family is a part of life where love is shared but when a family is broken, life is definitely meaningless.

 Do you want to earn for your family?  This is the reason why you go overseas.  But this must be a great sacrifice for the family and no one loves this kind of situation.

In online business, it will not happen.  You are with your family and you consummate your married life with your partner and loved one even to your children if ever there are.


II.  Unemployment, Displacement, and Retrenchment

Privatization of government-owned properties and contractualization of labor had negative side effects on the issue of security of tenure and it strengthens unemployment, retrenchment,  and displacement.

Addressing Problems in the Offline World-Dismissal of employees

 

What is Privatization?

Privatization is the process of transferring property from public ownership to private ownership and/or transferring the management of a service or activity from the government to the private sector.  Types of privatization include complete privatization, privatization of operations, privatization through contracts, franchising, and open competition.

 In Philippine Labor Laws, there is a Constitutional guarantee of security of tenure. The guarantee of security of tenure under the Constitution means that an employee cannot be dismissed from the service for causes other than those provided by law and only after due process is accorded the employee. (See De Guzman vs. Comelec, G.R. No. 129118, July 19, 2000.)

 But how can the Philippine Law protects individuals from the usurpation of rights when privatization of government properties and services is the very tool to its effect.

 Not all qualified and eligible Filipinos are employed in the government-owned properties and services.  Thus, they find jobs in private companies and agencies so they could provide their family’s needs.  However, the company’s manipulative power undermines the Constitutional guarantee of security of tenure.   

 Being fired, being retrenched are all possibilities with security flaws.  Displacement comes to a situation when a firm fails or closes.    How are these situations in your own country?

Is it not right for you to think of alternatives when you are not guarded by the law of your land?

 An online business must be the top consideration for a person who would not just surrender and make life sorrowful and pitiful.

What is Contractualization?

Contractualization refers to the practice of hiring employees who would render their services for a finite amount of time, usually, for a few months only. This is a system that has been practiced and used by many companies, including large corporations. These enterprises often utilize this arrangement in order to maintain their revenues up.

 The companies engaged in this include manufacturing industries, hotels, restaurants, and fast food, and retail sectors.

 In the Philippines, this systematic evil is reconceived and reborn every six months.  When you are laid off after six months of work maybe you haven’t yet earned for the expenses you incurred during your application.

 The difficult thing here is that you cannot just be employed immediately.  You may all be using three months to six months in finding a job.  And when you found something it is a job you are so overqualified and you have to take because it is the only one available.

 The sad part of this that the law does not have a penal sanction for contractualization.  At this time of writing, the issue is still under consideration of the concurrent administration.

Still, the consideration here is to think and venture into the online business which will not limit your capacity to earn for your family and more importantly will not degrade your personality and value as a person.


III.  Time Consuming Effort and Human Resource Liability of Offline Business

Every day I see individuals engaged in businesses of different kinds.  Some of them take with them fruits and vegetables, while some sell fish, others sell street food, and more.  But at the end of the day, they have just earned for their lunch and dinner for the family.

It’s from hand to mouth existence.  However, this may be decent and must be appreciated as it is insufficient enough to sustain a family.

On the other interests, many want to own a car, a motorcycle, a tricycle installment within three to five years.  Many have been in a compromised situation after some time of installment and payment.

Why are they interested in having these things because they wanted to start a business of their own?

The bad side of this, I saw some motorcycles being withdrawn from the payees’ hands after months of unpaid installments.  As if you have given free your saved amount of money.  This could be a possibility in online business but I think as long as you have established a site and is ranked by Google, the only lacking thing is the content you put into it.  You may lose a considerable amount but in the long run, you will reap what you have sown.

The difference between an offline business and an online business is human resource accountability.  In offline business, the more it grows and develops the more you employ people which add to the expenses.  While in online entrepreneurship as long as you have laid the foundation of your site and you have filled it with a quality content you need not employ other persons unless you add something on your site which is beyond your capability.

Small offline businesses’ income dissipates as the days pass by because people are tired of the same stuff every day and they want a change in taste and smell even in the nutrition they need for health when it comes to food.  One by one they start to look for others.

In online business, as your site gains the trust, and as traffic continues to improve, your income will also recur with improvement.

These are the reasons that count in considering online entrepreneurship.  You can become a millionaire by your own self, not like offline entrepreneurship, a millionaire will never move alone by himself by not acquiring equipment and employing more people to help him do the business.

 IV.  Conclusion

With these points, I stressed you may be thinking of starting your own site.  But wait, if you are a newbie in the online business it is not good to go on with your site immediately.  It is best recommended that you join the Online Entrepreneur Certification Course and Bootcamp Training. These will ensure your success.  Press the link below and I’ll see you there.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I’ve had to live away from my husband (then fiance) for about 6 months and it was terrible. It didn’t break us up, but it was really hard on both of us (and everyone who had to hear about it haha). 

    Another reason for going online is health. I’ve recently broken my foot and couldn’t work as it involved me standing up all the time and walking around. Online however was still possible as I could sit at home with my leg up and resting.

    And of course, while I was sick there needed to be a replacement at work. It’s business of course, but still lost me hours. I’m all for online work! 

    • I’m very sure this will fit your situation, Petra. The online venture is good for everyone except for those people with inability to think. Physically handicapt you can still work on your online business with ease because you will only use your mind.

      Thanks for joining the discussion and I wish you the best in the online world.

  2. A very good article!
    The average person would never know how to build an online business nor the great advantages that can be gained by learning from a reputable Affiliate University. How to create your own website and how to market that website which can allow people to build a business from home and still be with their families.
    I knew nothing about building a website or creating an affiliate marketing business before I found Wealthy Affiliate and an amazing program.
    Best wishes with your desire to help those who may be looking for another better way.

    • I’m glad Carol you have landed on this site again. Just as you I am a newbie too in the online world and I found Wealthy Affiliate. What is amazing in the online business is that it can help resolve family problems due to employment abroad. If they can write why can’t they earn here in the online business. It must be a good alternative.

  3. Hi Dolo!

    You’re right about the importance of being with your family. And it’s very sad when somebody has to move to make a living away from their beloved children, wife or husband.

    And the online world has become a significant solution when it comes to earning money without having to sacrifice family time.

    Thanks for reminding us the awesome possibilities of online business!

    • Thank you Israel. I hope this post can reach as many as those who are eager to look for alternative way of making a living by not compromising their family relationships.

      I believe Online Entrepreneurship is the new way that can solve the issue and offers a value being sought.

  4. Thank you for an interesting article on what working abroad can do to a relationship! I’m eager to agree with you and I think it depends on how long periods of time you’re staying away from your partner. If you’re only away 1-2 weeks at a time, I actually believe it can be good for the relationship and can increase your feelings because you’re longing for each other and never get bored with the other person.

    However, if it’s longer than that it will create too much distance and mistakes can easily happen as you mention.

    I also vote for having your online business instead and work from home, or wherever you want. You don’t have to take a risk with your relationship and will have time to make your marriage flourish.

    Cheers!

    • Stina,

      Maybe you are thinking of professionals going abroad because of invitations as resource persons, ambassadors to represent a country. These people may just stay there for two weeks to a month or even two months.

      We in the Philippines have millions of Filipinos working abroad within a contract of two years and renewable for another two years. Others have stayed overseas more than ten years. The reason they are there is to earn income because the Philippine government cannot employ them so they leave their families.

      Some of these people are spending fifty to one hundred thousand pesos. And the bad results of this arrangement is broken relationship.

  5. A lot goes into play when handling managing your own business. Family and marriage rightfully so can come into play in cases of divorce and other issues. I learned a lot from your article… things I never knew. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • I’m elated if you have found something important for you, Jen. Family matters and needs to be given the best option in life choices.

  6. Great article, buddy. Privatization is definitely a new word to me! But after reading your article, it looks like there’s a lot of paper work to get through to finish the changeover. As an online entrepreneur myself, these new key points have definitely opened my eyes to the possibilities, as I learned a lot of new things. I’ll be bookmarking your site and coming back to learn more. Cheers!

    • Thank you, Brandon, for reading and learning something here. It’s true these situations may occur to other countries and everyone must be ready.
