The dreams of many people is to earn a good academic degree and then secure a good paying job, but the hopes of most others is to own their own private businesses as entrepreneurs. Many people are now dumping paid jobs to set up private businesses even though they understand the challenges of entrepreneurship. But then, the following are just some reasons why people love private jobs over paid employment:
a. Creativity and ingenuity: Entrepreneurship brings out individual creativities and business ingenuities in people and these are what many people treasure most – the ability and freedom to express what is inside of you. Paid employment sometimes kill initiatives, and for an individual bubbling with ideas without the leeway to express them, he will think he’s better off with his own business where he could express his intellects to promote his business values.
b. Manage multiple businesses: Most entrepreneurs often manage two or more businesses simultaneously with great successes, and this opportunity encourages many people to go into private businesses. As a paid employee, you are tied down between 8 am-5 pm to work for another without any chance to even get to do anything for yourself, but as an entrepreneur you have the time and the opportunities to invest your time and resources in multiple businesses without reverting to anyone.
c. Free to take decisions: With your own business, you have the liberty of taking quick and instant business decisions without necessarily reverting to anyone for endorsements. Personal businesses give you the responsibility of making decisions that impact upon other people, the business and your staff. You agree to what should be and what must not be, and you give final approvals to decisions made by other people or staffs.
d. Have time for leisure: A personal business gives you the opportunity to use your time as you with, and you can even decide to take out a holiday and go on vacation anytime you like while you delegate duties to your staff to carry on. With entrepreneurships, the business can still do well without you in attendance and this helps you to mix business with pleasure without any serious effects on the business.
e. You work harder than anyone else: If you are an individual that loves hard work and challenges, then entrepreneurship is the line to toe. Many people may not know this, but business owners apparently work harder than anyone else because of the responsibilities and risks they bear for the business’s success and longevity. In fact, many entrepreneurs actually left their former paid employments because they were not appreciated for the hard work they put in, and they imagine they might as well put in all the hard work into their own private business and reap the rewards.
