My job is a necessary evil, necessary to survive each day until my own business is self-sufficient. Needless to say, I’m a very busy woman.
Like everyone else, life is about getting from one place to another in a very specific timeframe and everyone who has a job goes through this.
In general most people complain about going to work. Just ask anyone.
You will hear any number of people complaining wishing they could hit the lottery or something. But most of us have to work…not much to change that.
If you have to drive to work every morning it is a chore. I hate getting up and going to work, but it’s not the ‘having to go to work part that annoys me, that’s life.’
It’s the ‘getting’ to work that annoys the heck out me and my biggest issue is crazy people driving to get to a place called ‘work’ that they don’t want to be at anyway! Gheesh!
Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is rushing to get to a job they can’t stand or hate or complain about. It’s totally unbelievable to me! Let me explain why I’m writing about this. I believe each and every one of you should have your own business. Why?
Morning and evening commutes – every driver on the road is driving like they’re trying to get to the hospital when their wife is having a baby or some kinda emergency is imminent!
Everyone is claiming they hate their jobs, hate the commute, hate working, etc., yet they drive like maniacs to get there like they enjoy going to work – even putting life and limb in danger in their rush to get there!
I live in a semi-rural area where there are tons of deer and a lot of rural back roads. Most people take those roads to avoid the major traffic highways.
The roads are very, very small and narrow. There are ‘deer warning’ signs all over this place – all down this 5 to 7 mile stretch.
Not one day goes by that I don’t see a dead deer along this road…usually two or three. They are gone the next day, meaning that clean up happens overnight and then the next day there are 1-3 more. (We have a serious deer infestation in this area.) Ugh! Anyway.
Two lanes – one going each way. There are drop offs on the side. Deep ditches that if you have to swerve (just a little bit), you’re in a deep ditch that you will have to be pulled out of and most probably be hurt.
One road joins with Weston Canal Road which has a deep canal with just a tiny wooden fence between you and the water.
If someone ‘hits,’ the possibility of going off into this canal is a good one. That’s how narrow it is.
This morning, drivers were riding my car-tail, seconds from my bumper like they’re on a racetrack. I guess they thought this would make me go faster.
If a deer jumped out in front of me and I stopped, they’d be in my backseat or front seat with me. If the deer didn’t kill me, then the car in my backseat would!
This morning, on this narrow two lane road, I had 3 cars ride my bumper then speed by me into oncoming traffic to get in front of me to get to a job they most likely don’t want to be in the first place.
First of all, riding my bumper doesn’t make me go any faster. LOL! It will make me, literally slow down, just to piss you off! <teehee!>
All this to say, is I wish I could pull these guys over and ask them ‘why are you speeding fast to get to a place you don’t want to go?’
You see, some of us are smart. We’re right here, reading this blog. We may be entrepreneurs already, struggling or not, we’re working toward a goal of financial freedom and independence.
Maybe you want to start your own business so you can relax a little and not be so stressed out that you drive like hell and want to kill yourself (or others) for a job you don’t like.
So here are 5 reasons it’s better to have your own business.
You’re the Boss!
It’s yours and you work for you. All proceeds go to you …no one else and you only have to answer to YOU.
Work From Home Or Work Where You Want To Work
You’re free to work where-ever and whenever you want. One now famous blogger, Ryan Biddulph is traveling all around the world and blogging for a living and making money.
His e-book, Blogging From Paradise will take you to a whole different level with blogging. I want to be like him when I grow up! 🙂 I love that he is traveling the world. We’d all like to have our own business and travel so, right?
You Won’t Be Unhappy
You won’t be so unhappy and drive like a maniac to get to someplace you don’t want to be. And you’ll probably be safer for it!
Setting Your Own Schedule – Working from Anywhere – No Commuting
Aha! Won’t have to worry about getting to places you don’t really want to be….like a job! No stressful running from one place to another.
You can work your own schedule and your accomplishments will be based strictly on your own work, efforts and merit.
Why Should We Work From Home?
Besides the reasons above, successful entrepreneurs are happier, less stressed and more content.
Hard work yes, but your goals and your desires are your ultimate goal. Not working for someone else every day.
I think these are 5 great reasons to have a business of your own.
Doesn’t matter what the business — brick and mortar, online business, network marketing company….whatever rocks your boat!
Most entrepreneurs find it satisfying and that’s what is important! Optimistic – yes, that’s me! Just my two cents.
Do you want to be an entrepreneur and make money for yourself? To have your own business should be an ultimate goal of everyone.
