Commuting, coworkers, bosses -- the odds are high that one of these familiar aspects of corporate life just doesn’t work for you. For many of those disillusioned with the corporate world, starting a small business of your own could be the breath of fresh air you’ve been looking for. If you’re thinking it’s time to make a change, here’s a look at what life could be life as a small business owner:
Working to live, not living to work
When you work a corporate job, sometimes it feels like you’re putting in so many hours that you don’t even have a life of your own. But, when you work for yourself, you get to decide how much time you put into your business. Instead of requesting to pull back on hours or go part-time, you can choose to modify your franchise or small business to produce or sell as much as you need, when you need to, allowing you to make choices about your life after-hours.
Working on your own schedule
At the top of your list of annoyances is probably the 9-5 commute. How much time have you spent in a car early in the morning and late in the evening, and how many times did you look longingly at the clock on the wall when 3pm and 4pm rolled around, wishing you could head home? When you own a small business, you set your own hours and your own expectations. Impromptu business lunch? Not a problem. Taking off a Friday for visiting family? You can move your workload to meet your needs. These are the perks of working on your own schedule.
Report to yourself, no one else. Whether you love your boss or have had your fair share of poor leadership, one of the best perks of owning a small business is reporting to yourself and no one else. You set your own expectations, you manage your own schedule, and you evaluate how well the job is done for yourself. It’s no longer about trying to please the latest in a long line of management, it’s about getting the work done your way and reaping the rewards.
There’s no better time to start planning your escape from the corporate 9-5 than by looking into small business opportunities today.
