5 Great Things about Being a Business Owner

5 Great Things about Being a Business Owner


Across the country there are around 28 million businesses. We have quite a few right here in the Rocklin and Sacramento area and throughout California. Ask any business owner if they love what they do and you may get a few who are burned out and feeling stressed. But overall you will find that most business owners love what they do. They love being a business owner, and for a lot of good reasons!

Being a business owner is not only something that millions of people around the nation are doing, but it is something that millions more aspire to. Whether you are a business owner who is feeling burned out and need a reminder of the many benefits, or you are considering becoming a business owner, there are many great things involved. Here are 5 great things about being a business owner:

  1. Calling  the shots. Being able to be the boss and call the shots is a good feeling. It is one that most people will enjoy, even on the days they find it challenging. There is just something about being the boss that makes even a bad day seem a little bit better.
  2. Doing what you love. While being a business owner may put you in a position to follow your passion, it may not. But it may give you an opportunity to do what you love anyway,      such as leading and managing. If you do have a passion it is a good idea to see if you can make a business venture out of it, because it will not seem so much like work when you love what you do.
  3. Choosing your co-workers. One of the most difficult things for people is dealing with others at their place of employment. For many people it can be hard to get along with their      co-workers. This is something that you don’t have to worry about as much when you own the business. This is because you determine who your co-workers will be, so hire wisely.
  4. Wearing sandals. For those who don’t like to have to dress a certain way, being the business owner can be a real benefit. Owning the business means you can set the dress code. If you want to wear sandals go ahead, providing you don’t put your toes at risk and violate any insurance policy or safety guidelines.
  5. Feeling proud. If we are going to be honest about it, most business owners would say it feels pretty darn good to own a business. You will no doubt feel a sense of pride as you tell someone what it is that you do. That is, unless your business has gotten into some legal troubles and the reputation has been tarnished.

Business owners also usually find their position rewarding when it comes to the financial aspect as well. Rather than working for a set salary for someone, as a business owner you have more flexibility in being able to make more as you grow your business. Of course it may be a struggle in the beginning. But as businesses get going and become more successful, it is usually a beloved profession whether you are in Rocklin, Sacramento, or beyond!
