What are the advantages of being an entrepreneur?
Being an entrepreneur is seriously underrated. There are far more benefits than you might think. Some of the best are also the most overlooked.
If you’ve been debating the pros and cons of entrepreneurship and starting your own business, check out these advantages, and you’ll want to quit your job before you finish reading this post.
Be The Master Of Your Own Destiny
If you are tired of feeling like you don’t have enough control over your circumstances and opportunities and wonder how to launch a business, then becoming an entrepreneur might be the silver bullet you’ve been craving.
Being an entrepreneur means your present and future is not dictated by where you were born, the family you were born into, how much money you might inherit, whether you’ll ever pick the right lottery numbers on the right day, or the markets and what mood your boss might be in tomorrow, or even this afternoon.
You are the master of your own financial destiny. You can grow your own startup to being worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Even billions. Along with that comes a pretty nice income and additions to your wealth and net worth.
It isn’t just about buying stuff or bragging right either. The most important thing it can buy you is peace of mind and freedom. Freedom to pursue more of the things you care about most.
It’s The Most Sane & Safest Path
While many spend years struggling with the decision of being an entrepreneur, questioning the sanity of it (and their own sanity), as well as the logic of taking such a ‘risk’, entrepreneurship is the safest and most logical path.
Not all of your friends, teachers and family members may agree. Though it is probably even truer today than it has ever been. It will become even more obvious over the next few years.
There are no guarantees a degree will hold value, your job will last another day, or a corporate pension fund will survive the next few years. Betting everything on someone else’s business is just about the riskiest thing you can do in life. Especially if you aren’t right at the top with a lot of decision making power. It’s illogical.
Live & Die With No Regrets
In the end, we don’t regret the things we tried. We only regret the things we cowered away from or put off for too long. This is one of the biggest advantages of being an entrepreneur.
One of the most common of these regrets in entrepreneurship and what it can do for you. It’s unlikely you’ll meet someone who regrets trying their hand at being an entrepreneur. That’s true even if their first attempt failed miserably.
This is your chance to really live your purpose and reach your full potential in this life. You won’t have all the answers, skills and talents to be the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company with thousands of employees on the first day you launch your startup.
You’ll only develop those by doing it and finding great fundraising and M&A advisors. You’ll get there fastest by throwing yourself all in, today.
I go more in detail on this on the video below also on the advantages of being an entrepreneur which you may find interesting.
Make Your Own Decisions & Do It Better
If you constantly notice serious flaws in how other companies do things and are compelled to take action to do something about it, you are probably a natural entrepreneur. Give yourself a chance.
