It seems every youth in Africa these days is branching out on their own. Could it be that they’re seeing some great advantage in it? Let’s examine five advantages.
1. 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥
Let’s face it, jobs can be constricting and sometimes don’t allow you to maximize your knowledge and skill.
When you build your own business, you do what you want, how you want, when you want and if you need a powernap in the late morning or afternoon to boost creativity and productivity, you can take one.
Running a business can work well for many different lifestyles especially for people who want to work and still do other things. For a family oriented person, owning your own business can give the lifestyle flexibility necessary to raise a family and still have a successful career.
3. 𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡
Small business owners can easily grow as they have little or no resistance to their ideas which can be the case when they’re working for someone. You can also promote yourself!
4. 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐨𝐦.
As a business owner, you’ll be able to work in a field that you really enjoy. You’ll also be able to put your skills and knowledge to use, and you’ll gain personal satisfaction from implementing your ideas
5. 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬.
As a business owner, you’ll be involved in all aspects of your business. This situation creates numerous opportunities to gain a thorough understanding of the various business functions.
