It is our human nature to aspire to greater things. As entrepreneurs, we are very competitive and determined to achieve success. We covet to develop our small business into a big business, and to forever push our limits. But is a big business really that fulfilling?
Here are 4 reasons that will show you why it is better to have a small business
1. Your ideas are brought to life
One of the most breathtaking feelings in the world is seeing your ideas come to fruition. As an entrepreneur, owning a small business as a confirmation of your work is very empowering. And if we have to face and deal with failure, we can easily identify and fix our problems.
2. You gain experience
Before owning a small business, as an employee, you will never appreciate the whole mechanics behind running one. Being an employer means you will learn to deal with budget cuts, workforce, hard decision making, etc.
3. You become an entrepreneur
You will truly believe and feel like an entrepreneur, a person who knows everything about running a business, who organizes and operates one or more businesses and taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so. People will reach out to you to ask several things about your business, your products, and how you manage to keep it running.
4. You have freedom
Flexibility is a keyword when it comes to small businesses. It doesn’t matter if it’s a personal problem or just a decision for reinventing your business that comes out of the blue. While being an entrepreneur, you will be able to take time off anytime you choose to do so to deal with anything major that may come up. Your small business grows alongside your life, and you grow with your business!
