Just the thought of being an entrepreneur has crossed the minds of many. While some dare to go out and initiate the idea, many do not put the idea to practice.
Before choosing any profession knowing the pros and cons is essential. It helps make the right decision. And if you plan on becoming an entrepreneur, let me tell you, entrepreneurship is thrilling and intimidating at the same time.
The cons are always attached, but the tons of benefits that come along are what make me a happy entrepreneur.
So here are the advantages of being an entrepreneur:
Flexibility: Doing a job calls for timings. It is already a known fact that enough of people are tired of the same 9-5 routine. When you are an entrepreneur you have the opportunity to work at the time that suits you the best (Depending on the business you do). If you are a night bird stay up late at night or if you like early mornings wake up to do your favourite job.
Autonomy: Constantly being monitored and interrogated leads to a lot of emotional and mental tension. When you are an entrepreneur, you are not under the radar of instructions. You have the freedom to work at your own will, set your own targets and fulfill them.
Growth: An entrepreneur constantly meets new people. Professional meetings, discussions, brainstorming sessions etc are a part of the fraternity. Sharing space and ideas with great industry professionals leads to immense growth. Also taking up challenging projects is a great way of learning. All in all, the graph for individual growth only moves upwards.
Self-Confidence: Being independent and self- reliant are the foremost aspects of entrepreneurship. Nothing boosts your confidence more than a job that is completely dependent on your shoulders. Also with the amount of growth coming in, you only get to know yourself better and become confident each day.
Work Space: An employee has to work in the space provided by the employer. When you are an entrepreneur you can work at your favourite spot. Dust your area, set it up and get going!
Entrepreneurship is fun and challenging. Weigh the pros and cons before you make a decision and do what feels right.
