10 reasons why you should be an entrepreneur.

Being an entrepreneur can be one of the best decisions you will ever take in life but you don’t just jump into things without knowing why.

Be Your Own Boss.

Nothing can be more frustrating than taking orders from the same person all the time. Even if taking orders is okay, what happens if your life depends on taking orders? Failure to obey your boss can kick you out of your job. Being an entrepreneur puts and end to this and you don’t have to answer or take orders from any boss anymore, you live your life as it pleases you, you do things as you want.

Doing things

We all have various ways of doing things and what works for me might not work for you, if you are working under a boss your boss can make you do things against your will if he believe that is what works best but as an entrepreneur you don’t have to face all this, you do as it pleases you.

Work at Your Own Schedule.

Having a 9-5 job can be very stressful, you have to leave for work 9am every morning and you have no choice until 5pm in the evening, being an entrepreneur helps you overcome this and you can decide if you want to be working from 2pm in the noon till 6pm in the evening, it depends on you.

  • Depending on how and where your business operates, you can even work at night and sleep at day as an entrepreneur, you can decide to live a different way of life – and this is what a 9-5 job will never provide.

No Limit to Your Progress.

As far as working under someone is concerned, there is a limit to what you can be. You can never exceed your boss. Being an entrepreneur helps you overcome this limitation and whether you want to be a CEO or a sales representative, it is yours to decide. Another thing about working a 9-5 job is that it doesn’t matter how great your idea is and how it can help improve the company you are working for it is up to your CEO to decide, if you offer the advice and it is rejected there is nothing you can do and the company will remain in a low state which will also affect you but being an entrepreneur helps you overcome this. Since you are in charge of your business you will be the one executing ideas and you can determine if you want your company to only have a branch in the streets or be a fortune 100 company.

Determine Your Location.

Have you ever thought about working where you want? This might still be strange to you if you work a 9-5 job but one great advantage of being an entrepreneur is that you are able to determine your location. As an entrepreneur you can determine if you want to work in Africa or America but when working 9-5 you have no choice than to work in the constraint of your office. As an entrepreneur you can also decide if you want to be changing your location every month but a 9-5 job won’t afford you that, the final location can only be determined by your boss.

Vacate When You Want.

Being an entrepreneur also affords you the ability to vacate when you want which a 9-5 job can’t afford. You can easily decide if you want to be at home every thursday and friday of the week but a 9-5 job will never afford you that. Trying to take 3 days leave from your work in one month can even be a problem, let alone doing that every month – as an entrepreneur, that is no problem and you can even decide to take a 10 days off from your business, it all depends on you.

Determine Whom You Work With.

As an entrepreneur your business is yours and you can determine if you want to work with friends and relatives or any other person, this a 9-5 job can never afford. If you are working a 9-5 job, it doesn’t matter if your greatest enemy is your colleague, you just have to work together. Choosing whom we work with is sometimes very important for the growth of a business because you can decide to work with other like-minded people who also have an entrepreneurial spirit and are ready to help you grow, there is just no restriction to whom you can work with.

Unlimited Earnings Potential.

There is a limit to what you can earn while working your 9-5 job, it doesn’t matter if your company doubled its income that month you will still be paid the same amount you are supposed to be paid but as an entrepreneur, since you own your business there is no limit to what you can earn, all you need to do is be very creative and look for various ways to improve your income.

Freedom of Speech.

If I ask you if you have freedom of speech I am sure you will come up with a resounding YES! If you are working a 9-5 job I can assure you this is not true, you have no freedom of speech! When working a 9-5 job you can’t just talk to your boss anyhow because talking to your boss anyhow can lead to you being fired (Go call your boss a jerk if you don’t believe this!) but as an entrepreneur it doesn’t matter if you are talking to the CEO of one big company or a 12-year-old boy you still have right to the same words, you are simply not afraid of anybody.

Automate Your Income.

Another great advantage of being an entrepreneur is the ability to automate your income. You can easily employ people to help you manage your business while you tour the world but this isn’t possible in your usual 9-5 job, trying to do is you signing your sack letter. Also, as an entrepreneur your income is not affected by how you work, you can determine if you want to be paid whether you work or not, you can also determine of you want to create your automatic income machine but this is not possible in your regular day job, you have to follow the working guidelines put together by your boss, failure to do this might result in something else.

Passive Income and knowledge Stream.

You can decide to spread yourself into as many businesses as you want when working as an entrepreneur but your 9-5 job won’t allow this, you have to be in the office every time, and not only in the office but also doing the things of the office. One great advantage entrepreneurs have is that they can create passive income streams and also improve their knowledge in so many ways. You can decide to have a big company under your belt while at the same time doing some other business, you are not restricted by anything. Another disadvantage of working a 9-5 job is that you don’t know much about subjects other than the area you work but entrepreneurs deal with as many businesses as they can and gaining more business knowledge isn’t a problem.

  • The Reality

Being an entrepreneur beats working the 9-5, you don’t have to sit in one office trying to please another man and you are not restricted to one location, you can work where you want. You also have your freedom of speech and you can say whatever comes to your mouth. *In fact, as an entrepreneur you can go on doing crazy things.
