This July, Claim Your Own Independence Share Could your idea be the start of a successful business? July is a time for fireworks, cookouts and remembering how wonderful it feels to be free. Why not take control of your own independence and forge ahead with your idea? While starting a business venture can be a bit intimidating, it can also be highly rewarding. Think about being your own boss for a change and having the life you’ve always imagined. As inventors, and often Type-A personalities, we operate through imagination and creativity. We are born with the gift of seeing a problem and tinkering our way to a better solution. Have you ever regretted not taking a chance on your ideas? It’s not too late to share your idea with the world and take charge of your destiny. We must not forget that, just as America sought its independence, often the rewards are well worth the risk. Owning your own business and developing your idea into a marketable product can have you waking up on Mondays excited to start the day, rather than reporting to work for someone else who’s making all the money. 10 Reasons Being Your Own Boss is Awesome 1. You’re in Control of You As a Type-A, you likely have a knack for being a leader and making decisions. Owning your own business, you can control your own destiny and you’ll never have to work for someone else. 2. You Get a Life While owning your own business takes a lot of work, you can find balance by making your own schedule, setting your own hours and working from wherever you want. 3. You Choose Your Team The days of having co-workers you don’t look forward to working with are over. As the boss, you choose your team, deciding who to hire and who to fire. 4. You Reap the Rewards If you’re taking the risks, why shouldn’t you get to reap the rewards of your labors? The more flexibility you have over managing that risk, the bigger the rewards you gain for yourself. 5. No Two Days Are the Same You weren’t born for routines. When you run your own business, you won’t be doing the same tasks day in and day out, which will keep you on your toes and give you the chance to learn something new. 6. Passion Doesn’t Feel Like Work As an entrepreneur you’re likely going to work long hours, but when you are passionate about what you’re doing, it won’t feel like work. 7. Power to Get Things Done When there’s no one’s guidebooks, rules or red tape in the way, you don’t have to wait for someone else’s approval to make decisions. 8. One-on-one Relationships with Customers When you’re not just another number in a large corporation, you get to decide how you interact with your customers. You can even decide how to deal with the ones you don’t care for. 9. Become a Philanthropist Once you start to make some solid profits, you can do a ‘Bill Gates’ and give back to your community. It’s a great feeling to donate to charity and create more jobs. 10. Take Pride in Your Work When you turn your passion into something successful, you can take pride in knowing that you built something of your own. This is the biggest reward of all. Now that you know the 10 advantages of being your own boss, why would you choose to go to work for someone else over turning your idea into a profitable business of your own?
