How to Be Your Own Boss in 2022

Be Your Own Boss in 2022

After the great upheaval spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans in record numbers are leaving the corporate world to be your own boss. In a recent survey, nearly 35% of Americans said they were quitting their job to start a business.

Why, you ask, are so many people uprooting their lives and career paths? Quite simply, people want more flexibility in their lives and control over work-life balance. People want to work in a field they are passionate about and invested in. They want to build real wealth they can pass onto family or sell for profit, and they want to give back to their communities.

Pros of Being the Boss

The perks of running your own business are many, but let’s just name a few.

For one, you can pursue your passions, making sure your business not only makes money, but also feels meaningful. You’re also able to set your own hours, and ensure you have a work-life balance that works for you and your family.

There’s also an incredible sense of self-worth and empowerment that comes with running your own business. You call the shots, you make the tough decisions, you hire the team, and when all is said and done, you get to see the amazing product and benefit of all your hard work and effort. There’s just nothing like it.

Scheduling flexibility

If it’s one thing the pandemic has taught us, it’s that Americans value more than ever their work-life balance. As a business owner, you are solely in charge of when and how much you work. Truly, no one knows better than you what needs to be done to be successful, and just how many hours it takes to get there.

That’s not to say hard work and time isn’t involved – because it is. The difference as a business owner is that you aren’t subject to anyone else’s idea of how to get your work done. That’s on you.

No Corporate Ladder

One of the great false beliefs of our time is that the only way to succeed in careers is to get a big corporate job and climb the corporate ladder. But that just isn’t so, and an increasing amount of American workers are coming to this realization and discovering there are so many paths to success – being your own boss ranking among the top of the list.

As your own boss, you don’t have to be subject to heady corporate rules or regulations. Sure, this puts a lot of responsibility on you, but for the right candidate, the opportunity to run your own business is an incredible chance to realize your full potential.

You Make The Rules

How many times can you remember complaining that your boss made a questionable decision or hired the wrong person? How many times have you thought you could create a better work culture or more efficiently run the show? Well, as a business owner, you’re given that opportunity.

For those with a strong faith and belief in themselves, the freedom of being your own boss brings so many chances to run things the right way, whether that’s setting work hours, creating a culture, hiring the right employees or bettering the workplace.
