I started this series with the first wrong reason , which is “Because I’m broke”. You may want to look for it.
Permit me to bring to you the second wrong reason to start a business
WRONG REASON 2: BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO WORK FOR ANYBODY
My mum told me that my grand dad use to tell her that if a pot is leaking in my village, taking it to the next village will not prevent it from leaking unless it is repaired. Why do I start with this. If you can’t work for somebody’s business, you will most likely not be able to work for yourself. If you are lazy about working on someone, chances are that you will transmit the same laziness into your own business.
Laziness is not the function of the task or the task master but your attitude. If you don’t deal with it, it doesn’t matter what or who you are working for, you will continue to be lazy.
Business requires hard work, if you are looking for how to run away from work, starting a business is not an option.
I can authoritatively say that business owners work more than employees. There’s nothing like weekend, public holiday and off -office hour for those who have businesses, especially when the business is still at a start up phase.
Whether it is another person’s business or your own business, you are still working for somebody anyway. Either your employer(s) or your customers.
What if my Job is too demanding, what should I do? Well, I don’t know. But what I do know is that if you are going to build a sustainable business, it’s going to be demanding as well.
If you have a clear solution to a problem and you think people will pay you for solving it, then you are good to start a business.
