So the first part of the series is titled “Why start your own business.”
Starting your own business can be life-changing. It may look scary in the beginning for someone who has not done it before. So, if you have dreams of being the next Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk, you need to start from somewhere, right. So, being a little nervous is normal when you want to start your first business. But, you might want to get over your nervousness when you think about some of these reasons.
Reasons to Start Your Own Business
It lets you experience your freedom
For every ten people who started a business, nine of them started just to get their freedom. From waking up at any hour of the day to traveling to any part of the world without harming your business, running your business gives you the absolute freedom to do what you want. You can have control over your life when you have your own business.
You can work from anywhere you like
Doing what you love and getting paid at the same time from anywhere in the world may just be the greatest feeling ever. In fact, to most people, it is a dream come true. Imagine running your business from the comfort of your apartment and still getting paid without having to go to an office or a shop. Nobody likes to work in a boring place over and over again, so working from anywhere beats that feeling.
To escape the bondage of 9 to 5 jobs
These types of jobs can be very soul-destroying. To most people, it is a dream killer. Someone would say, why invest all your time and effort to help someone actualize their dreams while killing yours? Others are even discouraged by how much this type of job pays. You deserve a better life for yourself too, and by starting a business, you are already taking the first step.
You can create jobs
When you are working 9 to 5 jobs, it is for someone else’s business, you know that, right? It simply means it is also possible to have your own business and create jobs for others. Some entrepreneurs love to give back to the community, and the best way to do that is by creating jobs for other people. It gives them a sense of purpose and fulfillment most of the time.
To be able to create something
Some people just have that drive for making something new. Most of those people are the entrepreneurs we see today. They were able to recognize and capitalize on their unique abilities to see opportunities where others did not think existed. They harness these abilities to turn stones into gems. It makes perfect sense that they are entrepreneurs. So, if you have this drive to make something new, start a business.
To chase your dream
9 to 5 jobs have been known to be dream killers. Someone once said if you choose a job you like, you will never have to work for anyone in your life. Some people might think that chasing your passion is not profitable. Well, that is not true. You can ask video gamers, beauty bloggers, or sports personalities, and they will tell you the truth. It is possible to pursue your passion by doing the business you love. If your passion lies in a particular niche, you will come up with great ways to start a business in that niche.
To have financial independence
Another top reason people are entering into entrepreneurship is to be financially free. Even though it may be difficult to start a successful business from scratch, the ultimate goal is to become your own boss and gain financial freedom one day. With hard work, determination, and resilience, there is no limit to how successful you can be. First, building your business gives you growth potential. Second, as your company grows, your wallet grows with it. You can even decide to sell it or not; either way, it still guarantees financial freedom.
You can start your financial journey afresh
As the owner of your business, you can always start your business from scratch. What this means is you can make your rules without being hindered by the standards and procedures of any corporate ethics or boss. You are free to do whatever matches your vision, you can build your company on the principles of your own vision, and you can try out ways you believe to be more efficient without seeking approval from anybody. You can also solve your problems through any methods you deemed fit.
You can enjoy tax benefits
Even though starting your business may need funding and some time to start making a profit, you can always take advantage of tax breaks as an entrepreneur. Most governments initiate programs to help entrepreneurs and reward them with impressive tax benefits. All you need is to work with an accountant or financial planner to be sure your business is being set up in line with government standards for these benefits.
It helps you become more creative and innovative
One of the perks of running your business is that you learn to do several things by yourself. At least, when you are setting up a new business as an entrepreneur, you will be in the position to play different roles from HR to customer service to inventory manager to salesperson, etc. As you develop these skills, they are sure to help you somewhere along the line. Then, as your business develops, your skills develop with it. Soon, you’ll be able to control almost every aspect of the business. This is only possible when you run your business. As you grow with your business, you can now decide to outsource some tasks to people or not. Who knows? It may even give you the skill to start another business.
Here are some of the great benefits of starting your business. Remember that there may also be some challenges on the way, as starting a business is not always as easy as people make it seem. However, with the right amount of determination and tenacity, everything is possible. We have come to the end of today’s editions. If you want to know more about business, join us in the next session. See you there.
