6 Reasons to Become an Entrepreneur

Planning to open a new business and be an Entrepreneur?

There are lots of reasons why people opt to become entrepreneurs, instead of slaving to be normal employees. If you think that you can do logo design, develop a business plan, and handle the operations on a daily basis, then you might be ready to take the path of becoming an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship provides you with lots of freedom, and at the same time bring a lot of uncertainties.

Below are the top six reasons why some people choose to be entrepreneurs:

  1. Corporate Environment Limits their Creativity

Some people just don’t fit in a corporate environment. They feel that the corporate culture curtails their creativity. They think that they have a lot to offer than following orders. They rather do stuff on their own than be limited by orders given to them. That’s why they choose to become their own bosses and start their own business venture.


  1. Opportunity

By becoming an entrepreneur, an individual is able to decide what work will be like, and what gets to be done. When there’s an opportunity, one will be able to act on it right away. There’s no need to ask permission from someone because you are the one to decide whether the opportunity is good or not.


  1. Not Bounded to Nine to Five

While being an entrepreneur allows you to have a flexible lifestyle, you will still need to work hard in order to make the venture a success. There are no shortcuts. You need to put in the work to get results. However, you are not bounded by the traditional nine to five schedule. And you can go on a vacation whenever you want to.


  1. Family

Another reason why some people choose to become entrepreneurs is that they are able to spend more time with their family. Stay-at-home moms choose this path so that they don’t need to leave their kids with a babysitter. They get to be with their kids throughout the development phase.


  1. Passionate about Learning

Entrepreneurs are lifelong learners. They try out things instead of outsourcing them to others. For instance, if they need a logo for their new business venture, they will instead learn how to make one with the help of an online logo maker. Successful entrepreneurs are never satisfied with what they know.


  1. Change the World

Another common reason why people become entrepreneurs is that they want to change the world, not just their lives. Most of them are disappointed with the current status of things, and that’s’ why they opt to start their own business to make a change.

These are the reasons why people become entrepreneurs. However, keep in mind that becoming an entrepreneur comes with responsibilities. One has total control of the business, from the logo design to the products, and at the same time must make sure that the venture makes enough money. Make sure you are ready to accept all the responsibilities before you choose to become an entrepreneur.

    I agree with the post that we can be our own boss. Work on our time and pace. Enjoy leisurely vacations. All of this is possible when we have our own business. That’s why I work from home selling import export goods…back then I was in real estate.

    I work for a local supermarket and it’s minimum wage and I only get so many hours. But this was the year that I finally launched an ecommerce business and wrote a Kindle eBook. Suffice to say that it’s like a roller-coaster, but in terms of sales my Kindle eBook is doing much better than my ecommerce business.

    For me 2016 is the year where I’m taking massive action to change my life but I have to say it’s not the easiest thing in the world that is starting/running a business.
