Growing up, you're always told to study hard and get a good degree. Having a good degree will land you in a good job and in return, a better life. This is the mentality that some of us absorbed growing up. For some people, this belief is hard to throw away because it has been their belief since childhood.
However, in the modern era, this belief is starting to change. With the emergence of Social Media and Online Retail Stores, online selling and online businesses are flourishing. The growth of entrepreneurs all around the world is not only limited to online businesses.
Here are 6 reasons why you should start your own business today.
1. You own your own time and make your own decisions for your business
This is classic, but very enticing reason to start your own business. You're your own boss and you own your own time. You don't even worry about getting fired because you're the one who fires people. Owning a business also give you freedom when it comes to making choices.
2. Unlimited opportunities for income
If you're employed, chances are, you're getting the same amount of money every month for how many years. There are times when you need more money or you want a change of lifestyle, but these things will have to wait because your salary is not having a raise. This is when having your own business really matters. When you have your own business, your income will not be limited to only a fixed amount. Building a business is hard and takes time, but the opportunity to earn more money is a good benefit to consider when thinking about building a business. You can start your business by either using your savings or applying for a brick fundraiser. As long as you have that good idea, it would be easy to find investors.
3. Entrepreneurs are happier and healthier than employed people
According to Forbes, people who are managing their own businesses are happier than those who are employed. There is more work-life balance and in a way, using your creativity to build something is taking the stress of working for a living.
4. Building a business is more satisfying
This might not be the case for some people, but for a lot of people that want to use their hands to building something, owning a business is very satisfying. Owning a business will need more effort than employee, but you also got a chance to create something that you'll be proud of in years to come.
Business owners' reason to feel satisfied is not limited for them being able to be creative in their own terms. Some business owners feel that helping people and their families by giving them jobs are satisfying too. Businesses are also known for boosting the economy of a community. Being able to help back your customers are worth it for some people.
5. You feel more motivated
When you manage your business, it is either you succeed or you fail. Either you fail or succeed, you've learnt something and that's one the most motivating features of owning a business. It would be easier for you to be able to express your ideas and boost your confidence if you're motivated to do something.
6. You can live the lifestyle you like
This is the reason why some of the ex-employees took the shift and become entrepreneurs. You can live your life the way you like it, especially if your business is doing pretty well. You wouldn't need to write a letter when you want to go on vacation. It doesn't even matter if you came up to work not wearing your uniform. You don't even need to explain when you're late (an exception of this is when you have an important meeting or event). To put it simply, you get more freedom to do anything as long as you sorted everything in your business.
