There are hundreds upon hundreds of articles out there that warn you about the pitfalls of owning your own business. Unfortunately, this tends to discourage those who wish to venture out on their own and start their own business. Budding entrepreneurs have been told about the millions of reasons not to start a small business. They hear how it is too risky, how you will lose sleep and how your free time disappears.
Even with all of these uncertainties, people still take the chance and decide to start up their own business. Perhaps that is because in addition to so many downsides of owning a business, there are just as many benefits. Trimarc, your leasing company focused on financial solutions for your business, offers the benefits of owning a small business.
Follow Your Passion
You have been working for “the man” for several years and do not feel fulfilled. Your passion is what motivates you and if you own your own business, you will feel fulfilled. And yes, it is a cliche, but when you do something that you love, you never have to work a day in your life.
The only way to ensure you will always keep your job is to be the boss.
Many of us have been laid off, downsized or outright fired for whatever reason. When you own your own business, you are secure in the fact that you are your own boss.
Owning your own business gives you the flexibility necessary to have a successful career and still raise a family. A flexible schedule also means you have more options when it comes to life outside of work. For example, if you want to take off for a few days in the middle of the week to go camping, you can do that.
And for older folks, owning your own business when close to retirement gives you the chance to work and do the things in life that you find enjoyable and satisfying.
You Might Change the World
You don’t have to go back very far to come up with a name or two of people who changed the world with their company. Owning your own business could make you the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg.
Of course, there are thousands of small business owners out there who have changed the world in their own way, but they aren’t household names.
When you build something successful, it’s a wonderful feeling. You had a vision and started with nothing. You were able to execute a plan and now you reap the benefits. You can tell everybody that you are the one who did this.
The likelihood that you are ever going to earn the money you feel you deserve working for someone else is pretty slim. And even if you don’t get rich owning your own business, it is a whole lot better than making money for somebody else.
