I know what youíre thinking. ďWith the recession, no one is going to support my small business.Ē ďI need a steady income.Ē ďNow just isnít the right time.Ē Stop procrastinating, stop making excuses, and get it done already. You may think with the economy in its current state, itís not the right time. Itís actually a great time to start your own business. Some of the biggest names youíve ever heard of in business started during a recession. FedEx, General Motors, General Electric and Proctor & Gamble just to name a few. These are household names and operate worldwide! Maybe you donít want to be international, but you just want to be successful. It can work!
Why Now Is the Best Time to Become an Entrepreneur
* Thereís no such thing as job security anymore: Okay, maybe Iím speaking in hyperboles. There are some ďrecession proof careersĒ but not like there used to be. Thereís hiring freezes, thereís layoffs, thereís pay cuts, and departments shutting down for good. Your job isnít as safe as it used to be. You have to create your own stimulus package, and plan for your family. One day you may find yourself out the door with a box of things that used to be on your desk, when you had a meeting planned for 2pm. Why wait to get the boot when you can make things happen for yourself?
* Leave a family legacy: Your last name isnít Hilton, Johnson, or Rockefeller. If you work for the likes of these legends, you may not get to see the corporate office if youíre not sitting in it right now, and there definitely wonít be room for your sons, daughters, and their children. Becoming an entrepreneur leaves a family legacy, where your children and grandchildren can brag that you became a businessman or businesswoman despite the having the odds against you. You can hire them to help you and work by your side.
* Make your own rules: Letís be honest: who really enjoys authority? Do you like having to answer to someone? Do your enjoy having to ask for permission before pursuing a brilliant idea? Being an entrepreneur, youíre running things. If you want to try out some crazy marketing campaign, you can! If you want to take vacation for a week, you donít have to apply for it and wait for it to be approved. Your sick days are yours and you can take as many as you want. You make your own rules. How amazingly free does that feel?
If you have been having the itch to go out and do things on your own, stop waiting. Get up and make your dreams come true. Stop waiting for the ďperfect timeĒ; now is the perfect time. If you donít act now, something is going to get in the way, and youíre never going to do it. Youíll be kicking yourself and wondering what if for years to come. Do it now, or hate yourself later.
