Top 10 Reasons To Be In Business
Why don’t you fire your boss? Nah, I didn’t mean that. I don’t want you to fire your boss; I just want to encourage you to be an entrepreneur to help make a better and richer Philippines. Here are the:
Top 10 Reasons to Work for Yourself or Be In Business:
1. Salary. There is no salary, only profits. You decide how much money you make, and the sky is the limit!
2. Promotion. You own the ladder instead of climbing the ladder, so you don’t have to wait for anyone’s decision to get yourself promoted. You decide.
3. Balance. You take the day off when you want and spend it with whom you want. You can declare it a holiday today!
4. Job Satisfaction. You have no ‘job.’ You will have a business, and there is nothing more satisfying than to see that you are providing solutions, helping people through your business.
5. Training. You’ll practice real-life application of what you theoretically learn inside the conference rooms. You don’t learn swimming or riding a bike by reading and discussing about it; you go out there, get wet, fall flat on your face, and do it again! That’s how it’s done in business.
6. Travel/Location. Your commute can be 5 seconds from your bed to your computer. Out of all the business opportunities out there, the home-based business model, for me, is the easiest way for Filipinos to start building a business.
7. Rewards. Unlimited rewards await you in being an entrepreneur.
8. Recognition. You will not just get recognition but personal fulfillment from your and other people’s accomplishments.
9. Loyalty. To your loved ones, not your boss.
10. Self-Development. As Robert Kiyosaki said, “Leadership is not optional in business.” You will bring out the best in yourself as you bring out the best in others too.
I therefore tell you not to seek job security but to seek freedom instead, for the MORE you seek job security, the LESS control you will have over your life. The more you give up control (control over how much you earn, what time you sleep or wake up, how much time you can spend with loved ones, etc.), the more you give up your freedom.
Your job will always demand more from you and will ‘dictate’ how you live your life. You can’t finish your work, but your work can finish you!
So how come with all the business opportunities around, few Filipinos are actually in business and most would prefer to stay in the rat race? Risky? Sharon Lechter said, “Our definition of risk is allowing your financial destiny to be under someone else’s control.” I couldn’t agree more.
Business is a totally different world from employment. There might be risk if you apply your employee mindset in business. In sports, they say every great athlete has a coach. To eliminate the risk in business, simply get a business mentor, someone you’re willing to learn from and go from there.
