The number one reason for owning your own business? You want to be your own boss, not an employee.
You have the in-demand skills. You want to call the shots. You want to do things your way, without no one to answer to except your own heart and of course, your customers is another benefit.
Performing your service the best way possible and improving it over time. Innovating and being respected for it, without the corporate naysayers holding you back.
You and only you get to apply your own personal touch and sense of integrity to the quality of the service that you offer.
The independence and flexibility that comes from owning your own business is another benefit. You can choose the customers you want to serve. You can choose the hours you want to work. You can choose the type of people you want to work. You can choose the types of products, equipment, and systems you want.
Yes, there are a lot of decisions you will have to make but YOU are the one making them and that is what counts.
Yes, there are pros and cons to starting and building any business but remember the reason why you are doing this, you are free to make the rules YOU think are appropriate for others to follow.
You are free to move your business forward at your own pace and at the end of the day, the satisfaction, freedom, and flexibility you have from being your own boss out weight the challenges of owning the right business.
