Are There Options for Type of Work?

From the start of my Aliyah, I have been intrigued, fascinated and heart-sore to hear the attitudes of so many. When I would mention that I have a profession and wish to work in my profession and to earn a liveable salary, the response for the most part, has been, what do you need with your profession? Just give it up and go and clean houses. Or, give it up and become a cashier in a supermarket. Or, give it up and take some other form of minimum wage job. The lack of encouragement to succeed here in the land where all Jews belong, is partly what inspired us to begin this blog.

In networking to use our skills, over and over we find many clam up as to the trends in a certain service due to fear of competition. The truth is that there are now approximately 5.5 - 6 million Jews in Eretz Yisrael. Is there room for competition? For me, there certainly should be. Just because Jo Shmo books a service with Mr or Mrs Israeli, does not mean that he is the only customer that exists. 

What is the healthy response to such advice? Should one settle for minimum work?

The answer is of course up to you. However, keep in mind that we all have only 24 hours in any given day. If you are observing Shabbat as all Jews should be, then there are only 6 days of the week and probably part of Friday will be devoted to preparing to welcome Shabbat. Some of each day needs to be set aside for eating, sleeping, shopping and other personal life activities. So the 24 hour day naturally becomes shortened to far less than that.

As such, if you are going to earn ₪23 - 30 per hour, you can do the maths yourself to see what your potential will be.

Are there other options? Yes, there are always options.

If you would like to explore this topic further in a one-on-one session, in person or via Skype with webcam, do be in touch to schedule an appointment. If you are not ready or are just fact finding, we invite you to follow more posts on this topic both on this blog and on our other blog Millionaire Reality. Regarding our other blog, we have not posted there for a while, but recently became inspired to add more articles. Do let us know what topics are of interest to you.

We wish you much success in all physical and spiritual matters. May you merit to live in Eretz Yisrael, the land where all Jews belong. The land promised to the descendents of Avraham, Yitzhak and Yisrael.
