You know that saying, “If you don’t chase your dreams, someone else will hire you to chase theirs”? Well which side of this quote are you on? If you aren’t on the hiring side, maybe you’re tired of being micromanaged and underpaid because your worth isn’t recognized? If so, get inspired by just of the few perks of being an entrepreneur:

You have the ability to build something of value.

Beyond the financial benefits, owning your own business gives you the ability to create something that adds value to your community. This can be an incredibly rewarding experience.

You not only have the ability to help others, but you also can create jobs and give people a chance to learn and grow.

You have the ability to grow exponentially.

Climbing the corporate ladder is incredibly slow. Think about all the hoops you have to jump through just to get a raise or promotion.

Now, imagine you could give yourself a raise or promotion.

When you own your own business, there is no ceiling to how much you can make. It’s literally up to how hard you work. It’s no wonder three out of four millionaires in America are entrepreneurs.

You have all the control.

One of the biggest issues I had with getting a “real” job was being managed. It made me incredibly anxious knowing someone was constantly looking over my shoulder, critiquing my work and telling me what to do and when to do it.

As an entrepreneur, you set the rules.

Feel like sleeping in? Do it. Want to work on a passion project? Go ahead.

The control and freedom entrepreneurship gives you is what most of us work our entire lives for.
