- You set your own schedule
Though entrepreneurship can often require long hours, the benefit of building a business is that you are in charge of deciding when you want to work. Instead of the monotonous 9-5 set-up, you’re able to have more independence and freedom. It’s not that you are doing less work, but rather that you’re able to choose when you want to work in order to accommodate other activities in your life.
- You believe in what you do
Working in entrepreneurship is inspiring. Instead of being a cog in the wheel for a giant, hierarchical corporation, you are able to see your ideas make a difference and contribute to the construction of a brand new business.
3. Your workplace can vary
Don’t expect to always be working from inside an office while working for or creating your own start-up. Entrepreneurs and other start-up founders often work from home or while traveling, instead of within an office. The ability to opt out of working constantly in an office is a great way to be able to experience a change in scenery and break up the monotony of always working in the same space.
4. You’re the boss
You have a large degree of agency and control in what’s happening when you’re starting your own company. You get to build a team, decide where the company is going, and call the shots.
5. You get to see your work change lives
Part of what an entrepreneur does is solve problems. They make something more efficient, provide a better service or build a new product that helps people in their everyday lives. Whatever it is that entrepreneurs are trying to sell, it’s meant to change and improve lives (and turn a profit).
6. You become a business leader
Being able to see how your business has contributed to the local economy and provided jobs is incredibly rewarding. Your role as a business leader in your community is important and respectable.
Part of what makes entrepreneurship so alluring is that it’s both dynamic and exciting. The company is growing and adapting constantly, keeping everyone on their toes.
