Have you even woken up on a Monday and dreaded your workplace, and annoying boss? If your life has fallen into the pattern of dread on a Monday morning, and also hurrying out of the office at 5:30pm, it could be time to consider being an entrepreneur! Starting your own business is very rewarding, challenging and exciting. Our team at Kudos PA are from diverse backgrounds, but we are all entrepreneurial, so we have compiled a round-up of benefits of running your own business!
Be your own boss
Being your own boss is a dream for many, but a reality to only a small number of people. We don’t know why this is the case, as it is a great path and you are the master of your life and time. You decide everything, from your business idea, marketing, branding, who to hire etc. You have the power to decide how you spend your time every day, and every reward comes back to you. Some of our clients are parents and running their own business means they have a lot more freedom and flexibility to also spend time with their children.
The only downside we can imagine is being your own boss can also mean having to be a jack of all trade and doing everything yourself. The best way to avoid being overloaded is to delegate, whether to in-house employees or to virtual assistants like Kudos PA.
Doing something that you love
One of our clients, a high flying director, always dreamt of running his own business, but for years he didn’t know what to do. Then one day he realised that he loves cycling and fitness, so combined the two together and his business was to be a cycling coach! He is now running a successful business which is also his passion.
It is so important to do something that you feel passionate about, because when things in the business are not going smoothly, it is the passion and drive which will see you through any rough patch. Life is also too short to not follow your dreams, or to let fear stop you from even trying to do something different in your life.
Do you remember when you were in a job and you felt trapped and forced to fit in to a corporate culture that you didn’t identify with at all? It felt as though you were not being true to yourself? Being your own boss means that you can be yourself, because the business is a reflection of you. You can bring your personality to the business marketing, blogging and customer service. Your authentic voice can be heard. Customers love this and appreciate the human touch of a company. Be your authentic self!
Are you persuaded yet? Go on, take the plunge and be your own boss.
