Starting a business can be both challenging and rewarding.

1. You are your own boss.

Being your own boss gives you the freedom to do things your way and implement your own plans.

2. You get to do what you’re interested in.

Providing that you’ve done your research properly and there is a gap in the market, you can turn aan interest into a profitable enterprise.

3. Your business and you can work to your own deadlines.

Meeting your own targets can be a huge motivation to work hard and drive the business forward.

4. You can be creative.

Being an entrepreneur gives you the freedom to express yourself and develop your concept in any way you choose.

5. It might not be as hard as you think.

You can secure the help and funding needed to get you started.

6. It can be very profitable.

You will get most of the profits you make yourself.

7. It’s varied.

If you want a career where every day is different, going it alone could be for you.

8. You can have a second career.

Initially you can always get the best of both worlds and stay as an employee while running your own business.

9.  No more commuting.

Although most small businesses operate from offices, many entrepreneurs find that operating from home reduces costs dramatically in the early stages.

10. The big dream really can become reality.

You may feel that starting up a small business won’t lead to anything more than having your own desk but great ideas can grow.
