According to some workplace studies, around seventy percent of workers in America are unfulfilled in their jobs. That's even higher than I thought it would be. I was thinking career dissatisfaction would be more around 50 percent - much like marriage dissolution levels.

When you think about it, careers are a lot like marriage. Some jobs even come with contracts. The main difference is that it is usually easier to get out of an employment contract than a marriage. Divorce is also more expensive and traumatic. Unless you're a celebrity and you signed an agreement to perform and then renege!

Going solo is often the best way for a lot of people in life and in work. There's really nothing like being your own boss - and nothing more challenging. However, if you take the time to find satisfying work above all else, chances are it won't be that hard to survive as long as you keep expenses under control.

Finances are a top concern for entrepreneurs. Many people don't even take a salary for the first few years, but the fact remains, you need to create some kind of standing to grow the business. This is usually not going to be done without a professional appearance that is not developed by taking all meetings at the corner café, even if you buy lunch for your prospective clients. But who can afford an office when they are starting out?

Enter virtual offices! You get all the benefits but without all the cost. For just a few bucks a month, you can get a professional address where clients can be greeted, phones will be answered, and mail accepted. You can even rent an office for a day or a few hours to work and take meetings.

Truth is, research has shown that like love, money doesn't buy career or happiness. Looks like the best thing to do is examine what you really want to do and do it. For many, that means starting a business. Virtual office solutions make it more possible than ever to do just that.
