Life should be so much more than the 9 to 5 grind. If you want to ditch the corporate gig and spend your time doing something you can be passionate about (and have the potential to earn a great income) then it’s time to fire your boss and start building a business you can be proud of.
So take the plunge already - (you know you want to!) - and check out these five solid reasons to fire your boss:
1.) You want control over your destiny and how much you earn.
In a recent survey, business owners outrank 10 other occupational groups in overall well-being. The results of the survey reflect the importance of being free to choose the work you do and how you do it, the way you manage your time, etc. "Seeking out enjoyable work and finding a way to do it on your own terms, with some control over both the process and the outcome, is likely for most people to fuel satisfaction and contentment."*
2.) You want to love what you do.
Ever heard the adage, "love what you do and you'll never know a day's work?" Being happy and loving what you do isn't just a pipe dream anymore! Eight-seven percent of entrepreneurs report they are happy and satisfied with their jobs.*
3.) Life (and corporate America) isn't turning out quite how you'd planned it.
"For lots of boomers and Gen Xers, the recession has brought the old job uncertainty back and more people are looking to control their own futures by owning their own business. More then 50% of American workers are dissatisfied with their jobs and 80% fantasize about leaving their current gigs. which is a record by the way!
4.) You've got drive and want to be appreciated now — not 30 years from now. It's a different world today.
It’s a different world today. Previous generations worked for the same company for 25 years and had little to show for it. Some received stingy pensions; others were laid off. Young adults today want instant gratification and recognition.
5.) You want to get ahead — not just "get by" — on mediocre pay and anemic raises.
"Forget a raise. Some employees will actually be making less this year than they did last year."* The only real way to make money for yourself (and not just the company you work for) and be rewarded each step along the way is to work for yourself.
