Imagine getting up at 10 a.m, and leisurely making your way to the office. You enter, and everyone looks up at their ‘boss’. A secretary then informs you of your appointments and engagements throughout the day, and you go about your work. Suddenly, while interviewing a few students for a role you might have opened up, you get a feeling of deja-vu. It feels good to be on the interviewer side of the table isn’t it?
Starting your own business, is a dream of many. Millions of people all over the world, want to throw off the yoke of salaried employment, no matter how lucrative it might be, and start something of their own. And why not? If one has the talent, vision and a reasonable amount of common sense, realisation dawns that success doesn’t require too much labor.
Running your business sounds great. Everyone wants to be a sole proprietor, not answerable to anyone above you. But, a lot of people forget that to get an enterprise off the ground, you need to do a lot of background work. You need to be patient in case the company doesn’t post profits for a while. You need to wait till you break even. But once you do, the rewards are endless. Here are some of the reasons why you should start your own business.
- Flexibility:- Not only in terms of hours, but also in terms of location. You can now choose where you want to work out of. Are you just a 2 man team using the living rom of your house? No problem! Since its you who is your own boss, you can let things be the way they are.
- More downtime:- Well, in the beginning, getting the enterprise off the ground is a lot of hard work. But, once you’ve gained a reasonable amount of success, you can look to put your business on auto-pilot mode, and devote more time to your family/loved one’s.
- Your own deadlines:- Your timelines, and your promises cannot be altered by anyone from anywhere or questioned. You’ve set them, so going through with them is absolutely imperative.
- Pursue your passion:- Even if you are the business owner, you’ll need to work on the skill that you aim to bring to the table. Be passionate about what you do. No one wants to work with a person who exhibits laziness and procrastinate behaviour.
The biggest advantage of running your own firm, is the ability to run it from anywhere, literally. In India’s major metro cities, there are office spaces available for rent. For example, those based in Mumbai, will prefer a business enter in Mumbai or a virtual office in Mumbai.
