Are you sitting back on your couch wondering what do next? Are you at a crossroad in your life? Do you have the economic security and what to try new things? Just put in all that hard work in college and don’t what to feed the man? Here are some perks of being an entrepreneur.

1. Flexibility

Do you want to be able to go to Vegas, last-minute, for the big fight? Bachelor party in Mexico? Are you interested in only  working Tuesdays and Thursdays. Or do you have a sports career and you need to support yourself around the awkward hours. Maybe you just want to be able to take Friday off to go to your kid’s dance recital.  There are many  scenarios out there. Being an entrepreneur gives you the freedom and flexibility to do what you want, when you want.

2. Be your  “Own Boss”

Yes it is cliché, yes, you have heard it before but is it really true? Think about this, as an entrepreneur, you don’t answer to anyone (other than the contracts you have with your clients, but see above for time management). You don’t have to follow a dress code (comfort = productivity). You never get into awkward elevator conversations with your boss. You decide how much you are going to make. You choose the clients you want to work with. Really, all those things that you hate about working for your boss now are eliminated.

3. You will build huge self-worth

 There is nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishing great things.. When you are  able to see a project to the end you get an amazing adrenaline boost. You have the  opportunity to do something good for yourself and the client. You may also use your talents for the greater social good. The more you accomplish the stronger and more confident you become. This leads to overall great mental, physical and social health!

4. There are no limits to what you can earn

Of course, your level of involvement will dictate your salary so don’t expect money to magically drop in your lap. This is also is true of putting a lot of work in. There is no limit to what you can earn. You will get out of it what you put into it. Set the bar high and that new 2016 Acura NSX is no longer a pipe dream!

5. The technological landscape is ideal

Truth be told, we live in a day and age where entrepreneurship is optimised. Never before have we had such access to networking, social interactions, marketing platforms and general information. In a world where anyone can access just about anything, the dedicated and motivated entrepreneur is going to thrive.

With the advances in technology, the change in the general mindset of the population and the ability of mankind to adapt, entrepreneurship is the key to success. Allow yourself to earn what you deserve, rest when you want and
