There comes a point in just about everyone’s life when it’s time to make a big career decision. For many, that move is stepping down from the corporate ladder to become a successful entrepreneur. If you’re one of those individuals, your bold decision to leave the comfort and security of your day job may stem from any combination of personal and professional reasons to better your life.
Many of us spend 40 or more hours a week in some form of work. Here are five reasons you should consider spending that time on yourself and setting your inner entrepreneur free.
It’s YOUR business — so that means YOU get to call the shots! If you’re tired of the 9-to-5 daily grind, owning your own business can be just the boost you need to reinvigorate yourself while gaining control over your own career. Many entrepreneurs say they could never go back to working for someone else — if that describes you, then that’s pure motivation for working hard to make your healthy vending business a success.
2. Increased income potential
When you work for someone else, you’re probably making more money for your employer than you earn for yourself. When you own your own business, you get to keep the profits you earn. Whether you’re looking to improve your earning potential or ultimately achieve financial independence, owning your own business can offer unlimited possibilities — based on the amount of time and effort you’re willing to put in.
Work-life balance can seem like an oxymoron. But work-life balance is not about giving equal weight to home and work responsibilities — it’s about placing a priority on the things that are most important to YOU. Maybe you desire more freedom in your daily schedule or simply want to spend more time with your family. Whether it’s about finding more free time to do the things you love, or finding more time to invest in growing your future income, owning your own business can give you the flexibility you need.
4. Tax benefits
One of the greatest financial benefits of owning and operating your own business is the opportunity to write off legitimate business expenses. See your tax specialist to find out how to best maximize tax benefits.
5. Pursue your passion while making a difference
As the saying goes, “The only way to do great work is to do work you love.” Owning and operating a business in a field that you’re passionate about can lead to immeasurable personal and financial fulfillment. If you have a passion for health and nutrition, a healthy vending business can put you on the path to financial freedom while making a socially conscious contribution to wellness in your community.
Whatever the impetus behind your “aha” moment of starting your own business, it can sometimes feel overwhelming, so it makes sense to buy into a business opportunity with an established brand, an existing business model and a proven track record. Vending is a $42-billion dollar industry — and in a time when consumers are demanding more convenient access to healthier food choices, a healthy vending business just makes sense.
