If you’re a student of philosophy – your immediate response might be “why not?”
But in the home party world, it’s important to get some clarity about “why” you are thinking about starting and building your own business.
Take out a piece of paper and make your list. What will building a successful business do for you?
Will the flexible time schedule give you the freedom to attend your children’s sports events and after school activities?
Will the income help you gain financial freedom by getting out of debt?
Could it be that you have wanted to go on a family vacation for many years – and your business profits will help you make that dream a reality?
Or maybe your business will help you put your kids through college?
Perhaps you’re looking for ways to take advantage of the tax deductions that come along with having your own business.
Everybody has a different why.
Getting clarity about your “why” and reviewing your notes frequently will help you stay on track, should you run into a “speed bump” or two along the way.
It also might change as your business, and income, grows.
Being in business for yourself can provide many benefits…especially when you know “why” it’s important to you.
