G10 Answer The Question: Why Entrepreneurship?

GLASGOW, UK, September 2014 – If you’re an entrepreneur you have heard the million reasons not to go into business: it’s too risky, you might go into debt, you’ll probably lose sleep, your social life is kaput, and the list goes on. But even with all these uncertainties, people are still attracted to it. There are just as many, if not more reasons to take the leap and go into business for yourself.  Here are just a few from MANA Group:

1. Spare time. This one can take some time. Initially you’ll work longer hours for less pay. But if you do it right, you could start to master your schedule and the freedom that being an entrepreneur provides is awesome. 

2. Pride. When you build something successful, it’s a great feeling. 

3. Job security. Have you ever been laid off, downsized, or fired? If you have, you get this. With entrepreneurship the security lies in the fact you are your own boss. You run the show and don't have to worry about getting let go.

4. Doing good. While this isn’t exclusive to entrepreneurs, it’s definitely a perk. You can sponsor a charity, a non-profit or just personally give back to the community.  This is quite honestly one of the best parts of being an entrepreneur.

5. Novelty. Starting your own business will ensure you’ll always be facing new challenge and experiencing something new.

6. Mentorship. Having mentors and getting to be a mentor may be some of the best experiences of your life.  Learning from the masters and getting to help those less experienced than you gives you such a sense of satisfaction.

7. Becoming an expert. This point goes along with mentorship. Regardless of what you do as an entrepreneur, if you stick with it, you’ll probably become very good at it. 

8. Skills. While developing new skills can be tough and takes times, it can pay off in spades.  These skills will be invaluable throughout your life.

9. Financial independence. Let’s be honest, this is probably the biggest reason people get into business for themselves. And that’s a good thing!  You should want financial independence.  However you define financial independence – retirement stockpile, unlimited cash potential or having the money to buy what you want -- entrepreneurship can allow you to achieve it. Trust me, money doesn’t buy happiness, but it does make finding happiness much easier.

10. Create jobs. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of knowing you’re responsible for the success of your team. Your ideas provided them the opportunity to earn a living, provide for their family and fulfill their own dreams.

11. Your reason. This is MANA Group’s list of why you should get into business. But all that really matters is your reason to start your own business.  So, what is it?
