  • If they like their job why would they want to switch? I worked somewhere where I really liked it, I could have gotten paid more at another place, but I didn't switch. Just because I liked the place I was at.

  • Some of us are comfortable right where we are. If you have a job or business that is going smoothly and paying your bills it might not be worth disrupting that.

  • I work at home. I make great money and only work part time. Why in the world would I want to get another job?

  • Maybe they are happy with what they are doing. I know if I were working and I was happy with that job I wouldnt leave it for something else unless it was a too good to turn down offer that would benefit my family.

  • Well, I think it depends on what they are doing. If they found something that works for them, why switch. But if they haven't found one that works, in my experience, they will keep looking and try something new once in a while.

  • I honestly think that people don't want to get started in another business because they are already seeing bad results w/ what they are already doing, and affraid of it failing again. I am doing my own business which started off great, and is not doing so well because one the economy and two there are so many reps in my area. I have thought about trying something else, but because of the economy, I'm just not sure.

  • I agree, that they may already be happy doing what they're doing. Switching might not be something that's in the cards for them.

  • If they are happy doing what they do and happy with the money then why switch?

  • I work from home and love it but I am always up for something new. I love to learn about other things but they have to keep my attention.
