Thinking about a change? You can see it in your brain. Maybe it’s a lifestyle change… desire for a new job… or a passion to share with the world.
One thing’s clear: You want to be your own boss and office work is NOT for you.
Okay, so you know your end game. Now you’re wondering: can I achieve financial independence as an entrepreneur?
YES, you can. But don’t expect it to be easy. (you know what they say… what lasts won’t come easy). There’s a lot of planning and determination that goes into starting your own business. Create a clear vision for your business. How? Outline what you want to achieve, how you want to inspire customers and who your goals matter too.
You want a big goal (long-term goal) AND smaller goals (short-term goals) as you build your business. Mindset is everything. Make sure your goals align with your values.
Here’s the thing… You must be willing to put in the work to get the results — it won’t happen overnight. To help kickstart, create a definite plan (you do NOT want to jump in headfirst).
Once you have that clear plan, it’s time to take action.
Entrepreneurs build businesses around their professional & personal goals. Planning ahead allows you to strive for a certain number each year. Because you’re the boss, you get to make that choice. You get to be the decider of how your business will get there. How? With well-thought-out and strategic planning.
As an employee, the path to Financial Independence is usually a lot slower. As an entrepreneur, you’re the boss (more money in your pocket). You decide when to raise prices, sell more or expand all around.
Your options are endless. After you get past the initial craze of starting up and getting on your feet, you’ll get a taste of sweet freedom. The alternative? Being an employee and never being a decider.
Another plus of Entrepreneurship? Share your brilliant idea with the world. You get to watch your project (your baby) change the world. Your business becomes a living, breathing entity.
There’s so much more to being an entrepreneur than just financial independence (though that’s an important one). You get to impact on so many lives. You’ll do something you love every day. You become your own boss.
Follow that dream. Put in the effort and the time, and you’ll make it. Why am I so sure? BECAUSE your passion + your wisdom (you’re reading this blog after all) will force you to.
