We’ve become a people within a perpetual groundhog day, the same activity Go Daddy!everyday. converted by Web2PDFConvert.com
  2. 2. Just do me a favor and read the following article borrowed from Inc. pertaining to the bestreasons to be an entrepreneur by Jeff Haden, June 4th, 2012.5 Best Reasons to Be an EntrepreneurSure, being your own boss comes with the territory. But here are some other perks youprobably haven’t thought of. Posts Look Who’s Telling Big Brother Enough Is Enough Is Philanthropy The End Result Of Wealth? Only For The Wealthy.. Ideas Of What Not To Do In Order To Have A Productive DaySure, when you start your own business you get to be your own boss, expand your earningpotential, and maybe change the world. You know all that. Online Shopping, Its Advantages And Why It’s Become So PopularHere are some reasons you might not have thought about:1. You meet fewer mummies. Ways to Obtain Money Fast With The Use OfWhen you work for a big company, you represent that company. When you talk to vendors, The Internet While At Homesuppliers, customers, etc., you must be more of a suit and less of a person. (I’m not criticizingcorporate employees; I was one. That’s just how it works.)The larger the company and the higher you climb, the more of a suit you must become.In short, you become a corporate mummy and your wrappings hide your personality. And, Get Started Now!because big companies tend to do business with other big companies, you tend to interact *Emailmostly with other mummies.Mummies are boring. start nowPeople who start their own businesses can remove most of their wrappings. They have no oneto answer to but themselves. For better or worse, they can be who they are.And they can be a lot more fun to work with. Some will even become friends.2. You don’t need an oasis.Here’s what happens when you work for someone else. You have skills. Your employer tells youwhere, how, and when to apply those skills. You rarely get to do what you want to do in theway you would like to do it. You’re a cog in a larger machine.The more cog-like you are required to be, the less “you” is expressed in your work life… andoften the more you might try to express yourself in your office or work area.Hence the photos, trinkets, knickknacks… all the stuff designed to remind you that you are a lotmore than just a cog.Run your own business and you may still be a cog in a larger machine–because no one doesanything worthwhile completely on their own–but you get to decide where, how, and when toapply your skills.And you won’t need to remind yourself that you are more than just a set of skills to be utilized atyour employer’s discretion.3. You expand “I would be doing this anyway.”A few entrepreneurs strike wherever they think the revenue iron is hot, with little regard to thenature of the business.Most start a business because of an interest.

Whether you start a software company or not, you’d still be tinkering withapplications in your spare time.Start a business based on an interest, hobby, or passion, and you get to do a lot more of whatyou would be doing anyway.Then work-life balance is a lot less of an issue. When you do what you enjoy, it’s just life.4. You beat the IRS at its own game.While the following should not be considered legal or financial advice and you should always seekthe guidance of a qualified professional–wait, that just sounded like the disclaimer thataccompanies all those prescription drug commercials–owning your own business lets you tapinto a lot more tax breaks and tax-advantages.In the right circumstances you can deduct things like entertainment, travel, education, vehicles,etc. Your business can pay any out-of-pocket medical expenses not covered by insurance. Youcan create your own retirement plans and profit-sharing plans. You can employ family members.You can… the list is almost endless.And if you’re smart you won’t see the process as a necessary evil–you’ll see it as another way toway to maximize your return on your business… and hang on to a lot more of your money.5. You porch is a lot more fun.Someday you’ll sit on your metaphorical porch looking back on your life. If you’re like me you’llonly regret a few of the things you did, because those mistakes helped make you the personyou are. Aside from, say, the night a few friends and I confirmed that 1) cows don’t tip, and 2)cows are less than appreciative of those attempting to tip them, I regret very few of the thingsI’ve tried.What I definitely regret is not trying things–especially if the reason for not trying was a lack ofconfidence or fear of the unknown.One of the worst porch sentences will start with, “I wonder what would have happened if….”Don’t look back and wonder. If you want to start a business, do it. There are ways to limit yourrisk.If you failed, at least you tried.And no matter how badly you failed, you will have done so on the only terms that matter–yourterms.

  4. 4. The best part of the article in my opinion is at the end when it states, if you failed, at least youtried. I was taught that a certain group of people make no excuses for it’s failures, they regroup,make corrections and try again. No one can imagine how many successful entrepreneurs havefailed on other business ventures. How many times has Donald Trump filed for bankruptcy?Failure is part of the process, everyone isn’t lucky on their first shot, it may take ten attempts &the eleventh explodes.Now is the time to display your creativity and writing skills, let us know what youthink pertaining to anything, click here.
