It’s freaking crazy to think about one day starting up a business. There can be a lot of risk, and there is usually tons of fear associated with thoughts of actually getting up and doing it. There are thousands of reasons to start a business, but I like to focus on the important reason. Everyone has their own reasons why they someday hope to venture fourth into a profit churning adventure, and here’s my reason.
Time Is Money
How crappy is the idea that so many people willingly trade their own time for a set amount of money? I hate the idea that each hour is valued at a certain dollar amount. No matter how hard a person works during their work shift, the money they make for that day will not change. Owning your own business eliminates the cap that employers put on your wages. If you can get a project up and going and commit yourself to working at it and dedicating time, there is not a being on this planet that can put a roof over your business and finance goals.
Freedom of Time
There are 168 hours each week, and they are all yours. Make your own schedule. Plan out each week with set blocks of time dedicated to your small business or project. Working a 9-5 job will take hours and hours from your life that you will regret wasting. Owning your own business will give you the flexibility to plan the rest of your life and do what matters to you.
Your Time is Valuable
See a pattern here? Start working toward your ideal career with you as your own boss, and your life will quickly change. With your own ability to plan out every hour of every day, you will successfully have more free time then you’ve ever had before. Don’t let employers continue to tell you what you’re worth. Start slow, make something happen, and take control of the time that is given to you.
