There must be some reason more and more people are starting new businesses (there were 600,000 last year alone). There’s plenty of incentive to start your own business as opposed to working as an employee for someone else. Check out the top 5 reasons why this is the year you start your own business.
- Control your own destiny. Owning a business saves you from having to work for someone else, allowing you to control your own destiny. Have you ever worked for a company and thought, “If only the boss did this differently, we could be so much more successful”? When you’re in the driver’s seat, you’re making the decisions for how to steer the company and, in essence, directing your own future. You create a culture, a brand and a successful organization.
- Find work/life balance. Flexibility is often one of the most-cited benefits of owning your own business. You decide if you want to work from home, how many hours you will work, or even if you stay in your pajamas all day. More importantly, owning your own business allows you to set your priorities rather than punching a clock.
- Follow your dreams. Many entrepreneurs say the long hours spent investing in their business is worth the time, because they’re doing something they are passionate about. When you love what you’re doing, the time spent to make your dreams come true is a fulfilling choice, not a chore.
- Choose your coworkers. When you work for someone else, you don’t get to choose your coworkers. That’s not the case when you are a business owner. For example, with a XANGO business, you can build your own team of trusted professionals. You can hire personal friends, family members or even former colleagues. The choice is entirely yours when it comes to building your business team, and you know better than anyone who you’ll work well with.
- Challenge yourself. As a business owner, each new day will be filled with opportunities to challenge yourself, to learn something new and to exercise your creativity. You rarely experience the same day twice. Every day you are learning something new about keeping your business on track.
