5 Inspirational Reasons for Starting a Business

If you’re stuck on the fence, looking for inspirational reasons for starting a business today, we’ve created the best list from other business owners for you that will make you want to leap!  Or, maybe even remind you why you did start a business in the first place…

Reason #1 for Starting a Business: To be in control of your own destiny.
There is just something about being in control of your own destiny that is one of the biggest reasons for starting a business.  It’s about living life the way you imagine, not the way others imagine you to live.
“It’s choice–not chance–that determines your destiny.” – Jean Nidetch

Reason #2 for Starting a Business: Because there is no such thing anymore as social security.
The reality many younger generations are facing, is growing up with the knowledge there is no longer anything close to security.  I know my generation watched our parents do the 9-5, only to go into retirement loosing half their money in the stockmarket.

Reason #3 for Starting a Business: To manage yourself.
There is nothing greater then managing yourself.  But the catch 22 here is, you must also be able to discipline yourself (note to new entrepreneurs: this is ALOT harder then it sounds).
“If we don’t discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.” – William Feather
Reason #4 for Starting a Business: To finally do something greater then anyone who have ever guessed you could.
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained”. – Marie Curie
Reason #5 for Starting a Business:  The freedom to make your own choices in your own business.  But, new entrepreneurs should know with freedom to make decisions, comes a heavy burden.
“Heavy is the head that wears the crown”.
