I work one full-time job, one part-time job and run my own business. Basically, constant chaos. However, being an entrepreneur has some major perks (besides free coffee in my case) that make taking the risking plunge worth while.
1. No Useless Meetings
99.9 percent of my meetings are done over email, phone or are 30 seconds or less. Win.
2. Tap In To Your Passion
If you were this cat, it would be tuna. For me, it's coffee.
3. Affect and Implement Change
The ability to be able to change peoples perceptions about how ‘this or that’ should ‘be’. Go crazy with it.
No matter what it is! Do the things. Make them happen.
No more. Whether it's the people you work with, the office you're stuck in, or the dead-end job your pretending with, you never have the control. Now you can.
1. The Sum of Hours
I think last time I checked, it was around 70+.
2. Employee By Day, Entrepreneur By Night
Unless your business/idea/model/etc. sells for big bucks right off the bat, there is a certain amount of stress to be found in working multiple jobs just to be able to be an entrepreneur. It seems a little crazy, right? Well, it is.
3. Life Motto: "What's Sleep?"
I'm more tired than not.
4. Always On Call
I often find myself "working" while supposedly "taking time off". Vacation? Hope they have Wi-Fi.
Being an entrepreneur is great. Hectic and tiring, yes, but pretty much the bomb-dot-com on all other levels. I get to meet and work with people from all over the country and even world, create meaningful work and relationships and bring people I love some pretty dang good coffee.
Are you passionate about something? Want to see a change implemented or solve a problem? Do it. Take the plunge and do it.
