There are all kinds of reasons to start a business. Reasons given by new business owners often include the desire for more control over their own lives and the opportunity to do things in what they believe are the best ways, instead of being constrained by management in a typical job working for someone else. Some do it for more money – or at least the hope of more money. Some do it for ego. Others feel they are pursuing a cause and that their work will have a positive impact on other people.A lot of people just want more control over their own lives instead of always being told what to do by someone else.
What Are Your Reasons?
In today’s uncertain and sometimes volatile world – having another source of income at least – instead of just counting on a job – is a good idea. There are so many different businesses you can start and run that will meet that need. A business that can support you and your family in the event the primary job unexpectedly just goes away. And many do every year. So having a source of income that you control is kind of like having your own insurance against job loss – and having that makes even the time you do spend at a job more pleasant because you are no longer relying completely on that job.
Anytime is a great time to consider starting your own microbusiness – but since we are rapidly coming up on the end of this year and the beginning of a brand new year, so many people are thinking about their plans for 2018 and beyond.
Maybe even you are considering starting a business. If not – maybe you should!
