Advantages of Owning a Small Business

Owning your own business is fantastic but it comes with its fair share of stress and hard work. I know from experience! However, there are many advantages to owning your own business!


You are the Boss!
Statistics show that being your own boss is the main reason people start their own small business. You don’t have to be an unhappy employee anymore. You make all the decisions and are essentially in control of your own future. This makes any milestone that you achieve in your business very rewarding.


You can enjoy flexible hours
You have the freedom to pick your own working hours. This is extremely beneficial if you have a family because it means you can see them whenever you want and you aren’t restricted, especially with school runs and babysitters! It makes it easier for you to fit your work life around your home life and get the best work-life balance for you and your family.


My experience of owning a business
Like many other business owners when I set up my business 3 years ago I found that I worked very long hours initially and didn’t have the work-life balance that I desired. However, as my business has grown I now have the right processes and strategies in place to help me achieve my dreams. I spend more time with my family and friends, go running twice a week and even enjoy having my weekends free again!
