Why You Should Go Into Business?
Lian, who introduced herself in her e-mail to me as a Chinese would-be entrepreneur from Nanning City, Guangxi Autonomous Region, China, asks: “Is going into business better than being employed in an office?”
As a business owner myself, my answer is “It depends”.
What are the reasons why people go into business?
The reasons are many, as there are many businessmen and women.
I myself am into business to diversify my income from my profession.
In addition, based on my random interviews with businessmen and entrepreneurs who are my friends and clients, they told me the reasons why they went into business are:
2. To be the boss and call the shots, instead of remaining as an employee.
4. To fulfill a childhood ambition of being the owner of a business.
5. To make money or lots of it.
Indeed, most businessmen said making money is one of the important reasons for their starting their own business.
This includes making money to be financially independent, to be free from financial worries, to provide for a decent living for the family, to travel to other countries, to help other people by providing them jobs, are some of their motivating factors.
The late famous American businessman and billionaire J. Paul Getty once said:
“Almost without exception, there is only one way to make a great deal of money, and that is to own your own business. You’ll never do it working for someone else.”
So, if you want to make money and don’t want to work for someone else, my advice is: Go into business!
