As discussed in many of the successful case studies featured on our blog, there seems to be occurring advantages to starting up your own business... So, here are several areas of positivity you can discover from self-employment.
Flexibility- Flexibility can dominate the appeal of starting up your own business. Being self-employed gives you the freedom to decide when and where you will work. You can set a schedule that allows you to work at times that suit you and your needs. It is very rare for employers to set their own schedule, so this is an exciting aspect that many women have highlighted as the best aspect of business.
Passion- What is better than working in a job that you love? Employers who experience the same repetitive and unsatisfactory job may have a passion that they would love to turn into a thriving business. The more passionate you are about the field you are in, the more you will flourish as both an individual and a business owner. Our case studies demonstrate various women who all differentiate in their industries, but all find common ground in the passion rooted behind their business.
Income Potential- The potential behind your business can lift your salary cap and your income directly relates to your productivity. You can make as little or as much as you like, depending on the ways in which you promote your business. Rather than being capped at a certain salary through employers, you decide.
Confidence- Being self-employed forces you to test your limits. Taking the plunge into something you are completely unfamiliar with, will surprise you by how much you really are capable of. The initial daunting challenge of tackling finances and getting to grips with social media channels may knock your confidence. However, once you have overcome these small obstacles, the confidence developed is invaluable. Our most recent course, ‘Change it: Progress to Success’ works with many women who lack confidence to empower them with the self-assurance to build a better world for themselves.
Of course, self-employment may not appeal to everyone. But, becoming your own boss offers an element of freedom along with the satisfying feeling of achieving your goals.
