The entrepreneurial wave continues to grow with each consecutive generation. It is exciting to watch more and more young people venture into business ownership. They jump into the business world with education, skills, ideas, and creativity. Certainly these small business owners are changing the economic landscape and are responsible for generating cutting-edge ideas.
Reasons To Start A Small Business
Flexibility and Control
Building a business from scratch allows you the freedom to make key decisions. You decide when, where, and who. Small business ownership also allows you the ability to dictate the business philosophies. These philosophies dictate future policies, customer service, product or service choices.
Small business ownership is perfect if you are looking for a flexible schedule. Of course, owning a business is similar to raising a child. It needs your attention, discipline, guidance, and wisdom until it grows strong enough to independence.
There is no doubt owning a business gives you the freedom to earn more. The revenue depends upon your efforts and in that process you reap the rewards of your efforts. Potential earnings are only limited by your effort and ability.
Passion, Innovation, and Solutions
Starting a small business requires a fiery passion for your idea. You must not only believe in your product, service, or idea. You must believe in yourself. Believe in the ideas, innovation, and solutions you bring to clients. Solve a problem for them with passion.
Learning, Growing, And Challenging
Owning a business teaches you more skills than a standard 9-to-5 job. You will challenge yourself in new ways, learn amazing skills, and expand yourself in areas you never considered.
Generational Gift – A Family Business
If you have a family, starting a business is a wonderful opportunity to build something for yourself and family. It is not uncommon to see family owned businesses passed from one generation to the next.
My husband and I have owned 2 businesses in the last 20 years. Our current business has become a great success after much sacrifice, hard work, and discipline. But our sacrifices are worth it! I own a small handmade jewelry business and two blogs. They are a joy to own and run because I have a creative outlet that is a passion. As a family we enjoy working in our family business, helping our community, meeting the needs of our clients, and solving their problems.
