The Benefits of Being Your Own Boss
At one point in time, the American Dream was bold and ambitious — it was the idea of freeing yourself from the yoke of others, being your own self-made individual, and taking your destiny into your own hands.
Unfortunately, in today’s climate, that’s not as easy as it once was. For many, it’s everything they can manage to simply land a full-time job that pays enough to provide the bare essentials. That doesn’t mean the dream isn’t dead though — there are millions who are still working tirelessly to secure a future for themselves where they can run their own business and be their own boss.
It can be easy to lose sight of this goal when you run into the challenges that normal wage employees don’t face — staying up late, working endlessly, giving up time that could be shared with friends and families, and so on. But when you can make it happen, it’s worth it. If you’re ever doubting your journey to run your own business, keep in mind these perks that come from being your own boss:
You Decide Your Own Schedule
For countless people who are seeking self-employment, this is no doubt one of the biggest draws. For some, having a consistent schedule provides security and a sense of routine. For others, it feels like a ball and chain that suppresses their free spirit. If you fall into the latter group, you’ll love the independence that comes from being your own boss.
Gone are the days of waking up at 5:30 every morning. Gone are the days of stressing out if you stay up past 9:00. Gone are the days where you have to decline going on a fun family trip or doing something spontaneous because you’ve run out of PTO time. You are truly your own master when you can dictate your own schedule, and that can be extremely liberating.
Of course, everything must have balance, and it can be easy to see your work ethic decline if you’re too cavalier with your new unhinged schedule. Luckily, our new business opportunities such as OrdersIn, Motiply Partners, and Daily Deal Hub will ensure that you always have things to do!
You Can Work From Home
Anyone who has ever had a lengthy commute knows just how stressful and tiring it can make your workday. As an adult, free time is extremely limited, and this is only compounded if you have a spouse and/or children. The eight-hour workday is, in fact, a nine-hour workday when lunch is taken into account, and getting to and from your workplace can easily add another hour to that, or more if you’re unlucky enough to have a long commute.
Things get even worse if you don’t have your own vehicle — Uber and taxi costs can quickly add up, and taking public transportation takes even more time out of your day. Even if you are the one doing the driving, you also have to account for gas costs in the long run.
With all this considered, doesn’t the prospect of doing business at home sound nice? Being able to wake up, eat breakfast, and immediately get to work is an empowering feeling that also allows you to be much more efficient with your time.
Worried about going stir crazy? There’s no need to if you start your own business with BizOpp Zone. Our business opportunities will have you selling to local business and working with them. Whether you’re selling an online ordering platform to nearby restaurants with OrdersIn, or creating apps for small businesses with Motiply, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to hit the town.
The Sky is the Limit
There’s something to be said about a full-time job with a firm pay rate and reliable benefits. For many people, this provides a sense of security. You’re being cared for by a larger, more powerful entity that has strong and solid foundations. The only problem with this model is that there is a limit to how much you can earn — most jobs have a salary cap, and even if you’re making enough to reasonably sustain yourself, you’re not going to be getting rich.
When you run your own business, there’s an amazing feeling of knowing that your only limitations are the ones you set for yourself. Using our new business opportunities such as Daily Deal Hub and OrdersIn, your “book” can be as big or small as you want it to be. Want to have a small book that provides you with some nice money on the side? Go for it. Want to set a goal of selling to every single small business that exists in your city? No problem!
The point is, you’re the one who decides how much you earn, and there’s also a sense of optimism that comes with knowing there’s no true limit to your earnings. Subconsciously, you may be compelled to work harder knowing that you carry your own future in your hands.
You’re In Charge Of Your Own Team
Even a dream job that you’ve wanted for decades can be ruined by horrible coworkers or bosses. That is yet another beauty of being your own boss — your team isn’t decided for you. Every single person you work with will be hand-chosen by you, allowing to have harmonious relationships with your employees and work together in synergy.
If you want to bring on your spouse, younger brother, and your father’s cousin’s nephew twice-removed, there’s nothing stopping you. If you’d rather stick with the ol’ “don’t run a business with your friends and family” adage, you can always opt to seek out the best and brightest employees yourself.
And, of course, there’s the third option — not having a team at all! If you want to “lone wolf” your business, no one’s going to stop you. The good news is that this is a totally viable option if you sign up for any of the new business opportunities that we provide at BizOpp Zone. OrdersIn, Motiply, and Daily Deal Hub can all be run completely independently if that’s your wish. But who knows — you might just have such runaway success that it becomes expedient to bring on more people!
