Now that the tide is turning on credit, due to lender competition in the form of crowdfunding, online alternative lenders, and bank financing programs, it’s becoming easier for small businesses to borrow money. So, with the financial backing “in the bag”, do you think you’d like to own your own business and be your own boss?
Here’s five reasons to start your own Minnesota business:
1. Be your own boss
When you own your business, you get to tell yourself what to do, make your own rules, implement your great ideas, say what goes, and run your business how you want to–all without asking for permission. You can learn from your successes and mistakes, making adjustments and fine tuning as you go, without wasting time getting approval.
2. Follow your passion and be a happier person
Wouldn’t you rather spend your precious days doing something you genuinely enjoy? Operating your own valuable and unique business gives you the opportunity to use your skills and talents to make a difference in the world. It may sound cliché, but think of an entrepreneur that you admire, and you’ll see how this is true.
3. Enjoy not commuting (if you start out in your home office or basement)
…Especially during the coldest of Minnesota winters! Also with fluctuating gas prices, owning your own business and working from home can also save you money. Not to mention you won’t waste any more of your life stuck in rush hour traffic.
4. Inspire and connect to others in your Minnesota community
You will be surprised at the amazing connections you can make when you take the leap and start living your dream. You will also provide a huge dose of inspiration for those around you. Not to mention, once you start bringing in revenue, you can give back to your community by donating to charities and even creating jobs for people in your area.
5. Financial independence
Last, but definitely not least, starting your own business could be the recipe for your financial independence. Financial success / independence as you define it -having the money to buy what you want, a retirement stockpile, unlimited cash potential—taking the leap into the wild world of being your own boss can allow you to achieve it.
