Why Pursue Entrepreneurship?

So, why should anyone engage in the pursuit of becoming an entrepreneur?  Why would someone be willing to put it on the line instead of accepting the security of a regular job?  Now don’t get me wrong, if you are content with the regular routine of going to a job and getting a paycheck as a result, that’s great!  But what if you aren’t content with that type of arrangement, what are the options?

As with anything, there are the “pluses” and the “minuses.”  If you are working for yourself, you don’t have the constraints of having an employer.  This in turn leads on to other things such as determining your own work hours, developing your own work environment as well as having a bigger hand in how your run your affairs.  You also end up having more of a commodity that cannot be replaced – time.

Having this extra freedom can also coincide with the risks of not having a regular income that could lead to other difficulties (like meeting any financial obligations that you may have).  But with the risks come the potential rewards.  If you try something, you won’t have the nagging feeling of “what if I…..” that could ensue.  You would have the satisfaction of knowing that you at least made the attempt.  With this satisfaction, you stand the chance of feeling that you have been living a more fulfilling life.  What you end up doing could make a difference in the lives of a great number of people.

Either way, you decide!
