Employment vs Entrepreneurship
Does the current state of the economy have you rethinking how you derive your income? Many people are in a position where they are readjusting where their income is coming from and taking charge of their finances in a whole new way. There are pros and cons to becoming an entrepreneur. Economics and entrepreneurship have a direct relation to one another. The economics often drive new entrepreneurial ventures.
Deciding if you want to find employment working for someone else or if you want to start your own business can be an overwhelming decision. One reason to start your own business is to take the reins on your own financial situation. An entrepreneur can choose how they will earn their money and make decisions based on their own desires to develop their income. If you find yourself filled with determination and are self-motivated you will likely do very well as an entrepreneur. Understanding how economics and entrepreneurship work hand in hand is important to making the decision to start your own business.
For some employment is the better option. It allows you to let someone else deal with the decision making and lets you leave the work at the office at the end of the day. It also gives some the sense of security that they need knowing that they will get their paycheck every week like clockwork. This is important for many who have a family to worry about. Being an employee may also give you benefits such as medical and vacation that you may not have access to as an early entrepreneur. This is another area where economics and entrepreneurship work together to make major decisions in the business world.
If you have the ability to multi task, self-motivation to recognize and follow through with completion of necessary tasks and the drive to take the business to the next level as it grows then entrepreneurship is likely for you!
