Entrepreneurship is more of a passion than a profession. If you want to be an entrepreneur just to make money rather than solving a problem, you are on a wrong track. To be a successful entrepreneur, you need to stay focused and be passionate about solving a problem. The money is simply a byproduct of your success. However, here are 5 great reasons to start an entrepreneurial journey.
- Your job is not bound to nine to five.
Being an entrepreneur, you don’t need to (read you can not) live a nine to five life. You will have more flexible timing which also mean that you might need to work till 3 in the morning as well.
2. The adrenaline rush.
Building a successful business takes a lot of risk, and entrepreneurs love it. You are going to create something from nothing. There is no greater shot of adrenaline than the one you receive during the act of betting on an idea and watching it develop.
- You have the opportunity to change lives.
You can directly impact society by introducing a service or product that people use.
- It will boost your creativity
No idea is too crazy and no goal is too big when you are an entrepreneur. As explained by Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
- You will grow as an individual.
The growth and success of a business is often directly related to the personal growth of the entrepreneur behind it. Being an entrepreneur, you will be responsible for every single decision that involves your business. It is a great feeling when you look back and see how much you have grown as an individual.
