Why do people start businesses?

New Business Success

Due to the bad economy and not a lot of jobs out there, people are now taking the opportunity to build a business and develop a clientele.  A lot of individuals take the plunge and take advantage of the many opportunities and resources available when starting your own business.

Starting your own business gives you the opportunity to follow a dream or interest. Pursing a passion as a career by starting a business can increase your motivation to work and overall job satisfaction.

Many people like the idea of not being restricted by the rules and regulations of a job. When you have your own business, you set your own hours and come and go as you please. Initially, many owners may need to work more hours per day than a standard job. But when the business is established, they may be able to take time off and hire help to run the business.

To better understand why people start their own business, we asked many new business owners what motivated them to start it.

69% Of them answered “Be my own boss”
20% Of them answered “Follow a dream”

11% Of them answered “For Financial Stability”

It’s interesting that the desire not to have a boss is the primary motivator of entrepreneurs because “being one’s own boss” appears to be the prime source of entrepreneurs’ job satisfaction.

While there are many answers to the question why start a business, the best answer is the one that motivates you to take action. If you encounter any obstacles along the way, reminding yourself why you became a business owner in the first place can help you regain your focus and enthusiasm. The rewards of starting and operating a successful business are unparalleled in the world of work so start brainstorming and come up with your own answers.
