Declare your independence, create your own job writes Barry Moltz in Celebrate all Entrepreneurs on July 4th, Independence Day: Take The Test! (Chicago Now, July 4).
Many of us are taking that road as much out of necessity than choice because as Barry puts it "more and more, business people are forced to declare there independence from working for someone else simply because there are no jobs."
Even if the endeavor does not get you where you thought it would, at least it will make you flex your brain and it won't get flabby. You 're better off doing that than drowning in sorrow and self-pity.
Now take Barry's test and see if you're ready to jump in the water.
Don't forget, you'll need to be resilient.
