Is Working for Yourself a Good Idea?

Many people dream of being their own boss, starting a company and have it flourish. There is a freedom that comes with running your own business. With that said, it does not mean it is all rainbows and butterflies. There is actual work involved. Crazy, I know.

So the question you have to answer for yourself is...

Will you be a good boss for....YOU?

Often times, when you work for someone else, you check in, do the work asked of you and then you leave at the end of your day and call it good (for the most part.)

There have been many days, as I have been working for myself, for the past 16 years or so when I have had a crazy busy day, when I think about working a job that I just click in and out of. Sometimes working for yourself can be a bit stressful. You are doing all the parts of a business that big companies hire many different people to do. You wear many different hats when you run your own business.

There is much to learn as an entrepreneur. Once you decide that you are going to work for you, you need to implement some strategies that will set you up for success. Those strategies are a bit different for everyone and you will have to figure out what works best for you. But that is the fun part. YOU get to figure it out.

It is not always a smooth road, not going to lie about it. There is a steep learning curve when you start building a business. It is not as easy as hanging an "OPEN" sign on your front door. There is work involved. Lots of it.

Now, I am not trying to scare anyone away from starting your own business. I am selling a business training program for crying out loud. But I am saying it is not for everyone. Is it for you?

But when you make the decision to jump in, be prepared to learn and to learn a lot!

I say all this to get to this point....

The reward of you putting the work into your very own business is worth any uncomfortable personal growth that comes with being your own boss.

Be prepared to learn and grow a lot.

I consider myself an introvert. I am quiet and shy by nature but being my own boss meant I had to put on my big girl pants and get busy. I have really learned more than I ever thought I would about being a business owner and entrepreneur.

BUT that is one of the best parts of being your own boss! You will learn and grow in ways you never thought you would. It is exciting.

  • You get to create the kind of business you want.
  • You get to decide how to interact and be with your customers.
  • You get to decide when to work. you get to decide how much to charge.
  • You get to decide the style and aesthetics you want your business to portray.
  • You get to decide the quality of work you want out in the world.
  • YOU get to make all the decisions, and that my friend, is a beautiful thing.
