Reasons To Start Your Own Business

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

Being self-employed is great! When you are self-employed, you no longer have to subordinate to supervisors, you can decide for yourself and realise your own incredible ideas. This self-realisation makes many people that are self-employed very happy because they can spend their free time on the job, and dare to do some new things that they would never have been able to achieve as employees in a company.

  1. Free Time

Whether you want to start in the morning at 8 o’clock or noon, it’s up to you. You work whenever and wherever you want because, after all, independent work means freedom. A self-employed person does not have to ask for leave, they can also freely choose the working hours within a specific range, and it is easier to reconcile family and work. You can also consider using a life-work balance app for better organisation.

  1. Growth Potential

Every day in your independence, you are challenged, and you have no choice but to grow. Doing so makes you stronger. No matter how inexperienced and unsafe you feel in the beginning, you are a valuable source of knowledge for anyone. You simply need to create your own business cards, and then you are ready to get as many clients as you desire.

The financial aspect is another benefit. As an entrepreneur, there are considerable income potentials, and wages are no longer dependent on the employer or collective bargaining. You simply need a few money saving apps to allow you to manage your finances better.

  1. A Bigger Income

In many occupations, there is only a certain degree of potential for improvement. The salary increases are fixed, and are only attainable after a certain number of years or are always linked to negotiations. If you are self-employed, you determine your income. However, that may sometimes be associated with more work.

  1. Create Something You Are Proud Of

Your first own blog. Your first own product. Your first own book. Whatever it is, creating something that first time alone will be one of the greatest moments of your life.

  1. You Get To Travel The World

The fact that you want to become a freelancer, you can do so while travelling the world. This practice is referred to as digital ‘nomadism.’ The two most important things that a digital nomad in a city should have are the low cost of living and (of course) reliable internet at a certain speed. You can travel to exotic countries, such as America, Mexico and Philippines. Depending on the island lifestyle, you can enjoy fresh seafood and coconuts every day!

  1. You Are Your Own Boss

In self-employment, you are your own boss. Even if that is associated with many duties, you also have as many freedoms. Even though you have had a job where you have contributed a portion to the success, you will never be as satisfied as when you have built something all by yourself – without anyone being able to dictate to you.
