Have you ever imagined a life where you are free to live on your own terms? Free from boss? And free from certain kind of rules?
Where you call the shots and have the ability and opportunity to make as much money as you like?
You most probably have.
This is almost everyones dream, don’t get me wrong, working for yourself comes with it’s own set of problems, headaches, and set backs but there’s nothing quite like knowing that you are in control.
Here are 10 reasons why you should work for yourself:
1. You can work from anywhere
Tired of having to dress up every single day in formal office attire? I would say that one of the perks of being able to work for yourself is the ability to work from literally anywhere in the world. This is especially true for internet entrepreneurs.
2. You can do work you actually enjoy
Probably the main reason why most people decide to work for themselves. 90% of people dislike the work that they do at their jobs, which makes getting paid to do something you like a pretty sweet deal.
3. You have the opportunity to create jobs
Nothing feels better than being able to support and give others opportunities to shine. By working for yourself, and assuming you are successful, you will eventually hire others to take on the roles you don’t have time to do. You will be helping others to pay their bills, feed their families, and make a decent living.
4. There is no limit on how much money you can make
Really! When you work for a company, you are limited to a certain amount of money each month… a salary. And if you’rereally good, you’ll probably get a 10% or 20% increase. By working for yourself, the harder you work, the more money you will make for yourself. There’s no limit.

5. You will become more mature and self-disciplined
As fun as it might sound, working for yourself can be extremely stressful at times. No one will force you to come to work, you can work in your pyjamas, and can wake up at any time you please. This can be dangerous, and getting too comfortablemight not be a good thing. If you’re smart though, instead of crashing and burning, this will teach you self-discipline and maturity.
6. You can live out your true purpose in life
Ultimately, this is what we are all aiming for. For our lives to have a true purpose that is greater than ourselves. To know that we are creating meaningful work that is actually making a difference in this life. Working for yourself will allow you to live out your purpose.
7. You skills will grow at an astonishing rate
I have a friend who’s corporate job requires them to write 50 – 100 campaigns a day. This is cool and all, but it won’t really teach them any other valuable skills in the market place. Doing your own thing, at least at the start, would require you to get out there and wear 10 hats at a time. Product development, marketing, sales, accounting – these are all things you would have to learn and implement on your own.
8. It will give people a reason to remember you
And finally, my favorite one of all. Working for yourself will give you the adventure of a lifetime, a great story to tell, and most importantly – a reason for people to remember you. Nothing drives us more than the desire for a great legacy.Karim Boubker
