The Remote Life
This is a major benefit of being an entrepreneur — the remote life. Typically, an entrepreneur can work wherever he/she wants. On top of that, most entrepreneurs get to work whenever they want. There are, of course, some restrictions.
For example, some entrepreneurs still might have to go into an office. Some might have to live in a certain state to be close to business partners/investors. For the most part, entrepreneurs not only get to pick where they want to work but when they want to work as well — it’s a beautiful thing.
Needless to say, entrepreneurs have a ton of freedom. They need to hold themselves accountable, though. After all, they are the ones who are typically risking their own money on a certain business venture, so if their business doesn’t succeed, then they could lose a lot of money. Nonetheless, it’s easy to stay motivated when you can pick your own hours, where you work and live the remote life in general. If you are not an office person — and there are plenty of folks who aren’t — then this might be reason enough to throw your hat into the entrepreneurial ring.
You Get To Follow Your Dreams Every Single Day
Being an entrepreneur is great for the simple fact that you get to follow your dreams every day. You literally get to pick your work, which means you get to work on projects/businesses that you are passionate about. Not everyone can say that.
If you wake up one day wanting to take on a different business, work on a different project or whatever it might be, then you can. Of course, you don’t want to — and shouldn’t — drop a previous project or business just because (it could cost you a lot of money, among other things). However, you still have the freedom to shape your job in every sense of the word.
Here’s the deal, there are many types of entrepreneurs. There are culinary entrepreneurs, fitness entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs who specialize in a certain craft, such as writing or painting, and the list goes on and on.
Sure, the typical entrepreneur might wear a suit and tie, but that does not mean every single entrepreneur is doing the same thing, working on the same projects, tackling the same industries. This is huge, because it means entrepreneurs, thanks to all of the freedom they inherit, if you will, can follow their dreams every single day.

You Get To Be Your Own Boss
How many times have you said (or heard someone else say) that you hate your boss? Well, if you are an entrepreneur, then you get to be your own boss. Gone are the days of dreading going to work for the simple fact that you dislike your boss. Gone are the days of working for the man.
Now, you get to be your own boss and you also get to work for yourself. Just remember, being your own boss comes with a good amount of stress, responsibilities, etc. If you have employees, then you need to set the tone. You have to motivate these employees, keep them happy at the office, make sure everything is getting done and the list goes on and on.
If you work for a company of one, then it’s just you against the world. This can be a bit challenging from time to time, though. You are the only person in the office (metaphorical or not), which means you have to have a ton of self-motivation. You have to hold yourself accountable to a schedule that is flawless.
But hey, at the end of the day, you are your own boss, which means you get to call all of the shots.

There Is Essentially No Cap On How Much You Can Make
So many people decide to become entrepreneurs for this reason alone. When you are an entrepreneur, there is essentially no cap on how much money you can make. Let’s break this down a little further, shall we?
While it might be reassuring for an office warrior to receive a salary, said office warrior typically is capped out when it comes to how much money he/she can make. Yes, this person might earn raises year after year, but this person makes the same amount every single week. That means said person can work 40 hours or 100 hours and they will still receive the same amount of money during a given pay period.
When you are an entrepreneur, you get paid for the amount of hours you put in. In a sense, you get paid for the work that is being done, the service that is being provided or whatever it might be. This means you can delegate work (give work to other employees), work less and still make the same amount of money. Of course, you will have to pay said employees, but the time saved is usually worth every penny.
There is no limit on how much an entrepreneur can make. If you hustle, create good business plans, have all-star employees, etc., then this means you could make a ton of money in no time. How exciting is that?
