5 Reasons to LOVE being in BIZ for yourself

It’s all too easy to focus on “clients from hell” and the daily little frustrations that we encounter.  I have come up with my top reasons of why being in Biz for yourself is so much better than working for someone else.

1. You’re your own boss!!!!!!

When you’re in into Biz for yourself, you no longer have someone else deciding your every move.  You control how your work is doneYour client has a say in the final product, but that’s it, how you produce it, is completely up to you and that is awesome.

2. Say goodbye to frustrating commutes.

When was the last time you were stuck in traffic on your way to work? If you perform your professional duties from a home office, it’s most likely been a very, very long time.  Even if you work outside of your home, you were able to choose the location, and I’d be willing to bet you chose somewhere convenient to you.

3. You enjoy variety.

When you’re in Biz for yourself, you’re forced to think, be creative and you love it, don’t you?  I love knowing that my skills are being put to good use and that those skills are going to continue to grow as my business grows.

 4. No co-worker drama.

Many of us work alone (or work remotely) and that isolation can be a bit daunting at times. But do you really, honestly, miss your co-workers? Your favourite co-workers became your friends so naturally become part of your life.  But now you get to choose who, when and where you spend your time with, and I LOVE THAT!

 5. You set your own schedule.

If (like me) you’re not a morning person, you can rest easy knowing that you no longer have to set your alarms several times in order to just barely make your morning meeting. Or, if early is your style, you can set your hours early and have a full day’s work done before your kids get up for school.

So when the stress of everyday life starts to wear thin on you, it can be hard to remember how amazing your life and your business really is.  Remember being in Biz for yourself is a amazing lifestyle choice.

Be thankful.

Or if you forget why you chose to be your own boss, think back to what you were doing before, remember those long commutes, the monotonous work, repetitive duties.
