Factors You Should Consider While Evaluating Alternate Options
Hobbies, Interests & Passion
Align your career with your hobbies, interests and passion to earn a living doing what you love.
Make a safe career choice by opting for something which builds on your personal strengths.
Home Based & Self Dependent
Look for options that are home based and self-dependent as cost of office space and employees is prohibitive.
Earning Potential & ROI
Search for an option that has the potential to generate earnings based on your effort & value created; and not on conventional appraisals and tenure of service.
Respect and Credibility
Look for a career that has credibility and respect – a payoff that every professional seeks but achieves only after they attain a certain designation and seniority
Risk Tolerance & Taking Advantage of Opportunity
Rewards rarely come without risk. Your ability to take advantage of an opportunity will depend, in part, on your tolerance for risk. Choose an option such that you can afford the risk, financially and emotionally.
