Being your own boss, in this article will not only talk about owning a business but will also talk about being your own boss… emotionally, mentally and psychologically. There’s nothing worse than being mentally kept hostage. These are 6 ways you should become your own boss.
6 Reasons You Should be Your Own Boss
You Become Free
This goes without saying that when you are your own boss, you feel free, you feel in charge of your life and for the first time, equipped with positive attitude and emotional intelligence, you feel like you can do anything in the world. That’s a good feeling.
You Become Financially Independent
Creating your own business is a very rewarding adventure you will love to get on. Granted, not everyone can become a millionaire but if you are reading this it means you are one of those fed up of living paycheck to paycheck and would like to be in control of your own finances and life for the first time. Congrats.
When you have your own business, and are determined to make it work, you get the ultimate result.
The great thing is that once your business starts making money, you can put someone in charge and go have the best time of your life without worrying about money.
That’s financial independence and freedom rolled into one.
You Create a Legacy
Any business you create, having done it well, will outlive you and create a legacy for you, your children and the world. People will remember you and your name will outlive you.

You Will Become Fearless
There’s something about being in charge of your life, you have nobody to blame for anything that happens to you and as you make certain individual decisions, even though they scare you to death, you will become stronger in the process.
As you make many other decisions like this you will become really brave and will have exactly what it takes to be your own boss.
You Recognize Your Strength and Weaknesses
Due to the fact that you are now making your own decisions and acting on your own, you will know what you are good at and what you should delegate to others. It will bring out your strengths and weaknesses to you and you become a more effective and productive person in the process.
You Gain Respect and Recognition
Owning your own business is not an easy thing. This means when your friends and colleagues, at your re-union, ask what you do and you say you are an entrepreneur, they will have more respect for you and some of them will secretly envy you because like I said earlier on, almost everybody wants to be independent but fear holds them back.
