“I work a 9-5 job and have always day dreamed about being my own boss – what has your experience been like working for yourself?”
Five years ago, I took a leap of faith and left a career I loved at a company I was proud to be a part of. Haven’t looked back…if anything, I should have done it sooner.
Here are two major benefits (that I have experienced) from making such change.
1. Building a business for ourselves and not for someone else. This means that we can do things differently and have the freedom to implement idea’s that align with our own vision and goals. Being an independent insurance broker, this simply allows me to work for my clients and not the insurance company. Gone are the days of the pressure to hit someone else’s target. Now are the days to always do what’s best for our clients.
2. We can choose how to spend our time. Gone are the days of being on someone else’s agenda. No more meetings just for the sake of having a meeting or putting energy towards a cause you don’t believe in. Now one can choose to take a day off if a child is sick, or maybe join some friends on the golf course. Now we can prioritize our time, allowing us to be there for our clients when they need us the most. Time is valuable, the freedom to spend it as you wish is life changing.
