Entrepreneurs are those who think and act unique. They draw on their inborn habits, personality traits, and mind-set to innovate and bring in ideas that often straddle the line between genius and insanity.
Entrepreneurship can lead to a beautiful life as it allows you to experience freedom while still generating a lavish income. You get to call the shots, set your schedule and answer to no one but yourself.
Below are few compelling reasons why you should consider becoming an entrepreneur:
1. Design your destiny
When you work for a nine-to-five job, you are at the mercy of your team leader and the company you work for. They control hiring and firing, and the engagement at work is substantial within those eight or nine hours, every day. Eventually, what happens in those hours affects your life beyond that time too. There is very little control within our hands.
Fortunately, the recent industry trends and its impact on the economy have opened up a select space for the daring. Gone are the days of working in a company for years and retiring with a pension. Today, being an entrepreneur is not a viable alternative but also the way ahead. Your income is significant to leave in the hands of someone else.
2. Freedom to spend time on your priorities
Chances are you’ve heard of this -Time and tide wait for none! Life is short and time is the one thing we can never get back. This automatically makes time one of your most valuable resources, and you should treat it accordingly. Entrepreneurship gives you the ability to balance and schedule your time.
If you want to spend more time with your family or have any unexpected life circumstances come up, you could decide to forgo work for that day. A regular job, on the other hand, does not give you that kind of flexibility. Your work should ideally fit into your life and not the other way around.
3. Unlock unlimited earning possibilities
Your earning potential is determined by the position or the contract that has been negotiated with a job. You could eventually get raises and promotions, but those are the exception. Your earning potential is limited, no matter how long you stay at that job.
The first few months of business might be tough on a realistic note, but those who jump into entrepreneurship are self-motivated to build a profitable business. Entrepreneurs strive to break the status quo and successfully grow their business and income. The beauty of entrepreneurship is that there are no gatekeepers to keep your income regulated.
4. Leave behind a lasting legacy
When you build a business, it becomes an asset that can eventually be inherited, carried on and passed down for generations altogether. What starts as a quest for freedom could end up as something of pride to your family.
Global firms such as Ford are a great example of how a business can be passed down through the ages and still impact lives. If your business is based around something you are passionate about, that passion will transparently show through.
