Welcome to your next adventure!
Are you always feeling that itch, that desire to be better - to make something of yourself? That’s something all successful entrepreneurs share. Trust us, we’re speaking from experience.
Ready to join the ranks? If you’re still on the fence, keep reading and see what your life would be like if you decide to make that step:
Ask any entrepreneur why they first went off on their own, and most would tell you the same thing. “I just wanted to do things my way”. Some set out to prove they can do better than their current boss- and succeed. It’s a path independent thinkers when they don’t want to live under someone else’s shadow.
On average, a business owner makes more than a salaried employee. Of course, you also have responsibilities. You handle your own insurance, pension funds, training expenses and emergency funds. But, as anyone running their own business will tell you, it’s more than worth it.
If you’re an employee, your future depends on the decisions of others. But when it’s your company, you’re the one who makes the decisions. You can play to your strengths to get ahead, and make the choices that feel right for you. You don’t need anyone’s permission to make a move or take a chance on something. See a need in the market that can lead to a huge profit? This time, you can do something about it.
We all know how big companies work. It’s almost impossible for an employee to make an impact on how things work. If you try to change something or try an interesting new project, a dozen different managers need to sign off on it. In the meantime, all your colleagues are telling you “that’s just how things work, no need to change it now”. As a smaller business owner, you can take decisions and make things happen. You can adjust to changes in the market virtually overnight.
If you own a company and run it well, its value will increase over time. Then you can reap the results from your hard work, or even reward yourself by selling the company to an interested investor at a profit. Or you can use the profits as a pension fund.
Your average employee spends every morning stuck in traffic, and every day following a schedule someone else made for them. Their workplace, their lunch time – everything’s decided. But you – you can do whatever you want. You can work from home, or your garage, or a coworking space. You can start work at noon or work nights. You’re the master of your own life.
Entrepreneurship requires a healthy dose of curiosity and a bit of a daredevil spirit. You’re taking a step most people are too scared to take. But remember, you’re not alone – this is an adventure hundreds of thousands of people embark on every year. Join their ranks, find them, connect with them. Exchange ideas and experiences.
In order to become a legitimate business owner, you need to get your business registered and become recognized by your government and relevant authorities.
