If you have an idea for a product or service that you want others to be able to use or take advantage of, why not start a business around it? Sure, starting one can be nerve-wracking; no one starts a business of their own without being willing to take the risk behind it. That doesn’t mean the risk always outweighs the reward; if you take the leap, you could find yourself the Founder and CEO of something truly incredible. If that doesn’t convince you, here are some other reasons to start your own business.




Have you ever gone to work completely unmotivated? Working under someone else is difficult, and it can be hard to find the motivation to do your work if you two don’t mesh well. There’s not as much personal reward when you work for someone else either—no matter how much work you put in, the owners of the business will ultimately be rewarded most. When you’re the owner of your own company, the opposite is true: you’ll be motivated to do the necessary work and be rewarded properly for what you put into the company. It’s an absolute win when you’re your own boss.




Not only will you have motivation for your job again, but you’ll be passionate about what you do. If you want to make sure your job is something you truly love, building a business around your own business idea is the way to do it. You’ll be following your dreams rather than the dreams of someone else, and you’ll be personally invested in seeing the company you’ve created succeed both now and in the future.




As the owner of your own company, you’ll have complete control over your schedule and lifestyle. When you work for other businesses, you need to make sure your life is flexible around your work schedule; as your own boss, your schedule is yours to make. You’ll have an easier time finding that work-life balance than you would while working under someone else, and you won’t have anyone peering over your shoulder to make sure your work is getting done their way. This will take longer to achieve, but once you’re out of the initial startup stage, the world is your oyster.




One of the worst things about working for someone else is wondering about job security. When will you be promoted? Will you be demoted? What if you make a mistake that gets you fired? Owning your own business gives you job security that working for others simply won’t provide because you’re the one investing in your job and its future, not someone else.
