Are you tired of working for the man? Are you tired of clocking in at 9 a.m. and clocking out at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday? Are you simply not satisfied where your life is going, what your legacy is becoming? If you can relate, then you might want to consider becoming an entrepreneur.

3 Golden Reasons Why You Should Become An Entrepreneur
- There’s No Limit To How Much Money You Can Make
- You Get To Follow Your Dreams … Every Single Day
- You Control Your Destiny
There’s No Limit To How Much Money You Can Make
While life is so much more than making an endless amount of money, entrepreneurship doesn’t have a limit when it comes to how big your bank account can become. Let us explain why this is so important outside of the obvious fact that financial security, freedom and independence are all very important.
Let’s say you are working for the man at Corporate America. More likely than not, you are given a salary, which is great because you have security when it comes to a paycheck. However, the moment you go into extra innings (the moment you start working more than 40 hours a week), the moment you start making less per hour. In a sense, you are working for free. Side note: If you get paid by the hour, then working more than 40 hours per week could be very beneficial.
There are even caps on how much raises can be, so it’s hard to climb up the totem pole.
As an entrepreneur, there is no limit on how much money you can make, which is perfect for the person who is not afraid to hustle and put in the long hours. You could make $1 million on one business deal alone … or more.
As an entrepreneur, you get what you put in. As an employee of a huge company, well, you get what your salary states.
You Get To Follow Your Dreams … Every Single Day
Are you tired of dreaming of a different job? As an entrepreneur, you get to follow your dreams … every single day.
Not only do you get to pick your own hours to work, which is likely a dream to many people on its own, but you typically get to pick where you want to work. Plus, and this is the biggest thing, you get to pick which projects you work on. Reminder: There are many different kinds of entrepreneurs. Artists are entrepreneurs. Food truck owners are entrepreneurs. If you own your own business, then you are likely an entrepreneur. The point? There are many different kinds of entrepreneurs, meaning there are an endless amount of paths one entrepreneur could take.
“Choose a job that you like, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” — Confucius
Here’s one thing all entrepreneurs have in common: They follow their dreams on a daily basis.
You Control Your Destiny
In every sense of the word, an entrepreneur controls his/her own destiny. Entrepreneurs pick when they want to work, where they work, and they are also in control of how much money they make.
When you work for someone else, you are at their mercy. You have to do what they tell you to do. You know, if you plan on impressing your boss and keeping your job.
The best part about being an entrepreneur? The freedom. If you want to take a vacation/weekend getaway on any given weekend, then, well, you can. You hold all of the cards. You control your own destiny.
At Corporate America, everyone is replaceable. As an entrepreneur, you cannot be replaced when it comes to your own business ventures. You are invaluable.
“An entrepreneur is someone who jumps off a cliff and builds a plane on the way down.” — Reid Hoffman
