Why you should work for yourself? Best 5 reasons to be an entrepreneur
Why should you work for yourself?
Being an entrepreneur is the next big thing and the concept of entrepreneurship is gaining popularity day after day. Dropouts from top ivy league universities in America using IT and social networking avenues to be their own bosses. Do you want to work for yourself too? If there's anything holding you back, then you must read on. Here are 5 of the most compelling reasons why you should work for yourself, manage your own work routine and go on to be a successful entrepreneur.
1) You decide how much money you want to make
Your pay packet is not determined by the company policies, industry standards or your relationship with your manager. When you are an entrepreneur and you are your own boss, you decide when and how much money you want to make. The minute you start working for yourself, you start monetizing your own dreams by implementing ideas, putting in effort and most importantly, a lot of hard work.
2) Work according to your own schedule
One of the biggest advantage of working for yourself is that you are in charge of your work schedule. You decide when to start, you decide when to stop and you decide your work timings. Ask any entrepreneur and they will tell you that the appeal, attraction and satisfaction of being the master of their own work schedule is something they will not trade for anything else in life.
3) You have control over your priorities in life
We all have certain priorities in life, don't we? Family, children, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, hobbies and much more are very vital elements of our lives that most of us overlook when we have a 9 to 5 job. Because most 9 to 5 jobs don't finish at 5, do they? When you start working for yourself, you will have the upper hand and the ability to manage your priorities in life. No longer will you be in a tough spot and be faced with the question "Should I please the boss or should I please my partner?" When you work for yourself, the ball is in your court.
4) Work from where you want to work from
A great perk that is a part and parcel of the whole working for yourself package is the fact that you can work from where you want to work from. Whether it is the new office that you just bought, a rented office space, a shared office space, your home, or even a booked hotel meeting room. So say goodbye to driving for 2 hours to reach your office in the downtown area and forget those long and tiring train rides – Work from where you want to work from!
5) No more annoying colleagues
Working in an office where you don't have annoying and irritating work colleagues is probably everyone's dream. Working without dealing with an annoying boss would be a wet dream. But sadly that's not possible when you have a job, is it? As an entrepreneur, you pick the people that you work with. You can hire and fire people, at your wish.
