The Enjoyment of Being an Entrepreneur

 

Being an entrepreneur is hard work in some ways. As a matter of fact, it is a bit harder to make money as an entrepreneur than it is to work for someone else. For some entrepreneurs, even making mere pennies a day is much better than working for that boss who hates his guts and would do everything he can to hurt him. There are actually many reasons to enjoy being an entrepreneur as listed in this article I found on Chris Ducker’s site. I didn’t agree with all of them listed. For instance, “sticking it to the man” was not what I was thinking about when I became an entrepreneur. As a matter of fact, I became an entrepreneur because the man “stuck it to me” and I had no choice.

One advantage I do like is the ability to work my own schedule. This is quite an advantage to have. However, the downside to that is that one often has to work long hours. Another advantage is that one could work from wherever he wants. Many entrepreneurs work from home, a coffee shop, or a fun hangout spot. One can also choose the type of people he can work with. Being with the wrong clients and workers can make even the entrepreneurial life a living hell. The right clients will make work like a great dream.

One major advantage to being an entrepreneur is that the entrepreneur can create his own opportunities. This can be done by networking with people who share similar interests which will in turn help him create his own destiny.

One person that has created his own destiny is Marc Sparks. He understands the struggles that come with being an entrepreneur, especially at the beginning. He is starting a program by the name of Marketing Sparks with the purpose of helping other entrepreneurs get through the tough stages of starting their own businesses. His business has been met with a lot of support from his community of entrepreneurs. With marketing sparks, he works with other entrepreneurs to develop their businesses. He knows the advantages and disadvantages of being an entrepreneur.

Many of the advantages that come with being an entrepreneur come after the trial and error phase. This phase could take a few months to years. After one starts to profit, then he will have a little more freedom to do what he wants. This freedom will accompanied by a greater since of joy. This is the reason why entrepreneurs became entrepreneurs in the first place. Also, there are different types of jobs that entrepreneurs could do which could take a different amount of time to profit from. Some opportunities bring faster profit than others.
