Reasons to Own a Small Business


Thinking of starting a small business? You're on the right track. There's a lot of thinking to be done before you plunge into entrepreneurship. Below are some of the reasons why you should take that plunge:

  • You are your own boss. Of course, you live or die by your decisions, but that’s good - isn’t it?

  • You get to do what you’re interested in – you can turn a hobby or interest into a profitable enterprise.

  • Your firm, your deadlines - meeting your own targets can be a huge motivation to work hard and drive the business forward.

  • Get creative – Being an entrepreneur gives you the freedom to express yourself and develop your concept in any way you choose.

  • It’s not hard to set up a business.

  • It can be very profitable - if you run your business well, the rewards can be huge. And, from a purely selfish point of view, you will keep most of the profits yourself.

  • It’s not boring – an entrepreneur’s work is not just busy, it is also extremely varied.

  • Cut the commute.

  • Your big dream really can become reality.

This may be old, but I'll still keep it in mind. I've been wanting to run a business for a while now. Anyway, lately I've been thinking about buying a business instead of starting one from scratch. I feel like that might be a better option for me. Do you, or anyone else, have any suggestions? Advice? Thanks.
