Be Your Own Boss
We are heading into a new year, and it is time for a new year resolution. We believe in small business and independence. Here are five reasons why we think you should become an independent, small business owner in 2019.
You are in the driver's seat.Taking on the role of small business owner comes with many challenges, but it also has some pretty great advantages. For one, you are in control of your destiny. You determine how you will manage your crew, how you will manage your time, and your agenda. This should give you a sense of freedom that will help you stay positive and productive.
You get the chance to grow something of your own.
One of the fun things about starting your own business is watching it grow. Just like a puppy or child growing up, you should take pride in watching your business grow and hitting new milestones. It maybe hitting your first ten employees, or it maybe hitting your first million dollars in sales. Both, should give you a feeling of accomplishment that would not feel the same if you were working for someone else who reached those goals.
You can help your community by providing jobs.
Many business owners realize their most valuable asset is their crew. Providing jobs to your community is something to smile about. The average Ark employs between 10-20 crew members. This is not only helping your business function, but it is also providing your community with rewarding and competitively compensated careers.
You hold the power to control your work/life balance.
Growing a small business can take a large amount of work and time at first, but the wonderful thing about owning your own business is you have some control over your schedule. If you hire properly and create a strong crew, you maybe able to take some time away from the day to day tasks, and focus on you and your family. Also, sometimes you just need to take a step back to look at your business in a strategic way that you may not be able to do if you are in the trenches day in and day out.
You are not putting profits in someone else’s pocket
If you are sick and tired of working for someone and putting profits into their pockets you may be ready to start looking into starting your own business. Again, you will be in charge of your own destiny. By opening your own business you are taking on a financial risk, but on the other side you may see a significant financial reward.
If you are curious about opening your own business in 2019 please feel free to reach out. I would love to help out in any way I can. If you want to avoid some costly mistakes new business owners make you may want to look into franchising. Franchisors will guide you through the start up phase and give you continued support throughout your journey!
