Being an entrepreneur is the best thing I’ve ever done. It is a rewarding and challenging experience, and it helps you grow as a person. If you are thinking about starting a business, here are five reasons why you should be an entrepreneur.


1. To start a business that is aligned with your goals, values and personality, instead of a job you hate.

Starting your own business is a lot of hard work and it’s not always easy. You need to do a lot of research, planning, and you need to be patient.  When you’re building your business, make sure you’re doing something you love. If you love what you do, then you’re going to enjoy it every single day. 

One of the biggest decisions I made when I left my job was to become an entrepreneur. I didn’t know what I wanted to do or what I was going to do, but I knew I wanted to be a writer, a speaker, and an entrepreneur.

2. To make money.

The idea that it takes years to build a successful business is a myth. You can make a lot of money in a short amount of time if you’re willing to put in the work and work hard. It’s not easy, but it’s not as hard as people think it is either.

If you have a great idea for a business, and you have the determination and the drive to see it through, you can make a lot more money through entrepreneurship than you can in any other job. 

Elon Musk is a great example of a rich entrepreneur. He’s worth more than $21 billion. He started his first company, Zip2, when he was in college, sold it for $300 million, and then started another company, PayPal, which he sold to eBay for $1.5 billion.

But it’s important to know that most rich entrepreneurs didn’t get rich overnight. They’re usually the product of a lot of hard work. It’s also important to know that most of them are extremely generous with their time and their money. They often give back to their community and to causes they believe in.

3. To build a business that makes a difference

If you’re an entrepreneur, you have the power to make a difference in the world. You have the power to create something new and disrupt the status quo. You can create jobs, you can solve problems and you can change people’s lives. Every single entrepreneur can make a difference in the world. You may not be a doctor, but you can give back in other ways. You may not be a soldier, but you can still help the men and women who are fighting. You may not be a politician, but you can still go to the polls and support the candidates you believe in.

Entrepreneurs can make a difference in the world by creating products and services that make people’s lives easier, more productive or more enjoyable. The impact you can have on the world is limitless, and you can make the world better in any way you see fit.

4. To become self-employed.

You don’t have to report to anyone else, it’s just you and your business. You can be your own boss, and you don’t have to put up with anyone else’s bad behaviour. If you’re an entrepreneur, you’re self-employed and that’s a great thing. You can set your own schedule, you work on your own terms, and you’re the one who’s in charge. It’s good to employ yourself as an entrepreneur as it gives you the freedom to work on the things that you love. But self-employment isn’t always easy because you’re probably not going to get rich doing this, but it’s a great way to work on projects that you’re passionate about.

5. To be your own boss.

There’s an old saying, “If you want to eat a frog, first you have to swallow it.” That’s what it feels like when you start a business. Being an entrepreneur means you have to be your own boss. This means you have to be able to take criticism and to make your own decisions about what you want to do and what you want to create. I’ve been on both sides of the fence now. And my learning is that, you can be an entrepreneur and still work for someone else, but the important thing is that you are your own boss. This means that you’re in charge of your career and you’re making the decisions that will move you towards your own personal goals.


If you’re thinking about starting a business, I hope the advice I’ve given you today has inspired you to get out there and make it happen.
