I’m sitting here preparing for hurricane Matthew. Perhaps I should be worried, but instead, I’m writing this blog post.
In it, I’m going to be discussing the Benefits of Becoming an Entrepreneur, but before I do, I want to share something with you.
I’m not one to worry about things I can’t control. Sometimes I worry, and like now, not so much.
Actually, I’ve had quite a productive day!
I’ve created two videos, posted them to Facebook and Youtube, and I did a LIVE Facebook video, downloaded it, edited and uploaded it to Youtube.
The topic of my LIVE Facebook video was the same as the topic for this blog post.
So instead of sitting here all day being worried, I’ve chosen to learn something new, which got me pretty pumped!
patting myself on the back…
I learned how to add captions to my Facebook videos, which meant having to create a SRT file.
I went into my video editing software and learned how to distract the SRT file, upload it to Facebook, and viola – captions.
Taking it upon myself to learn something I wanted to know along with it being something new is an amazing feeling.
It’s one of the reasons I love being an entrepreneur.
Benefits of Becoming an Entrepreneur
Mind you, this isn’t a conclusive list. I’m sure others could add with what they feel are beneficial.
I’ll briefly share some reasons and if you have the time, you can watch my LIVE Facebook video where I share more details.
No More Daycare
I was a Nanny for nine years and I got to witness a lot of “first time” moments that only happen once in a lifetime. I often felt bad that the moms I worked for didn’t get to share in those moments.
I also become a step mom to a 6-year-old boy when my husband and I remarried. The expense of before and after school care, along with summer camp during the summers became very expensive.
Thank God he was a healthy kid and I didn’t have to ask my boss for time off.
Becoming an entrepreneur will allow you to save money, free up time from dropping off and picking up, and you get to share those magic moments with you little one that only happen once.
I used to think that money was the most valuable thing I needed, but I’ve learned the most valuable thing in life is time.
Time is something we can never make up or get back. When it’s gone it’s gone!
Becoming an entrepreneur allows you to spend your time the way you desire to.
Can you image? No more living paycheck to paycheck!
No more worrying about how you’re going to pay the bills. Nor will you have to go into debt using credit cards when something breaks or needs replacing.
Time is precious, but money is necessary! It really is something we can’t live without.
Becoming an entrepreneur allows you to write your own paycheck.
You decide how much money you want to make. Taking in more money than you’re handing out allows you to build a solid savings account, save for college, retirement, family vacations, and for investing.
Living a life of financial abundance also allows you to help others. It also serves as proof that being an entrepreneur is the ideal way to earn a living.
Imagine flying across the country to visit your bestie. Then imagine being able to write it off as a tax expense. Man! I intend to fly somewhere every month. 🙂
Becoming an entrepreneur will afford you multiple tax benefits. If you use a room in your home solely for the purpose of business, you can write off a portion of your utilities.
You can also write off any training you take part in, which includes online courses and business training programs that require a monthly fee. You can even write off printers, ink, new laptops, and so many other things!
Some people actually start a home business for the tax benefits alone.
Earn Cash Back
This applies to people who’re involved in a network marketing business opportunity. I’m with a health and wellness company and when I purchase a certain amount of products, I accrue what are called BVs (business volume).
When I have a certain number of BVs, I earn a commission. I’m actually getting paid for using products.
You might have heard that you can get “cash back” on one of those Captial One credit card commercials. Well, the same thing applies when you earn money for products you buy and use everyday.
This is why the Network Marketing business model is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to become an entrepreneur. You won’t have to invest thousands of dollars or take out a loan to start a business.
And you earn cash back on the products you buy and use – win win!
The Power to Change Lives
One of the greatest benefits to becoming an entrepreneur is having the ability to impact someone’s life!
Right now as you’re reading this blog post, I’m impacting your life. It might not be in a major way, but then again it could.
Perhaps you’re someone who wants to start an online business and you decide to work with me.
And let’s say you joined my business opportunity and training system and within 6 months to a year, you were able to pay off all your bills.
Don’t you consider that an impact? I think it’s amazing! It’s also why I do what I do. It is my goal to impact as many lives as I can.
I want people to know they have another choice. I want them to know they too can learn and develop the skills they need to become successful.
Do Work That You Love To Do
Let’s face it, most of us go to our jobs for the paycheck. While some people really do love what they do and are satisfied where they are, most people aren’t.
To me, the biggest benefit of becoming an entrepreneur is that I get to learn new things all the time. Just like I explained in the video about how I learned how to add captions to my Facebook videos.
I was so proud and excited. It was taking it upon myself and learning this new skill that had me so pumped today!
No one made me do it. I didn’t have to do it, and honestly, it might not help me earn any money, but being able to do what you love is – priceless!
Just think of waking up each day and being able to choose what you do each day. You get to decide how your day will be. You get to do work that’s fulfilling and meaningful to you.
And when you do what you love, you’ll never work again!
