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

Here are 5 Secret to Be a Successful Fashion Entrepreneur

The Secret to Being a Successful Fashion Entrepreneur
It’s very much a people-centric business, so you’ll need to create and maintain a good reputation for your brand and yourself

The allure of the fashion industry draws many budding entrepreneurs, and as such, fashion is a competitive arena to break into. Hard work and industry connections are both vastly important, but what else will you need to create your own enterprise?

While there’s no blueprint for success, here are certain characteristics that are a must.

Passion And Ambition

Without the burning desire to carve a niche for yourself in the fashion industry, any plans you make are liable to be lacking a vital ingredient. A passion for fashion and a drive to succeed are arguably the most important elements.

If you are in the fashion industry, it’s likely you already have passion and ambition in spades. Let it keep you motivated; your love for the industry will be the most effective incentive to keep pushing forward.

Communication Skills

As the founder of your own fashion venture, you will be the one making strategic decisions about the direction your business takes. You’ll need people in your corner to help you achieve your goals, be they team members, suppliers, stakeholders and/or business partners, so great communication and leadership skills are a must.

The best entrepreneurs in any industry are the ones who can clearly communicate their vision, get others to buy into it and build positive relationships with the people around them, and fashion is no different.

It’s very much a people-centric business, so you’ll need to create and maintain a good reputation for you and your brand, as a manager and within a wider network of industry associations, such as designers, manufacturers, distributors and publicists.

Confidence Counts

Any entrepreneur needs a healthy reserve of self-belief. After all, if you don’t have faith in your own brand, how can you expect others to buy into it? However, too much confidence can be as detrimental as none.

Confidence can be difficult to sustain, and while it’s natural to have moments of self-doubt, you’ll need to fall back on an in-built sense of confidence when times get tough.

Risk Taker

Following on from self-confidence, to create your own fashion business you’ll need to be comfortable taking risks. That’s not to say you should make rash decisions, but that you will need to be able to assess business situations as they arise, and identify and mitigate risks worth taking.

Waiting for the “right” or “perfect” set of circumstances can mean waiting forever, and “perfection paralysis” can stop many budding entrepreneurs in their tracks.

By understanding how to use data and business intelligence to inform your decisions, you’ll gain the confidence you need to identify which hunches to follow.

It’s the nature of setting up your own enterprise that not everything you do will be sure to succeed, but without pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, you’ll be unlikely to reveal new opportunities.

Understand Business

Of course, even if you embody all of these qualities, you may not get far without a thorough understanding of business. As cutting-edge business tactics continue to shape today’s fashion industry, fashion entrepreneurs must be able to employ strategies that will help them negotiate this commercially-driven sector.
