The challenge of running your own business could be just what you need.
If you are unhappy with your current job or feel that your career has stagnated, running a small business from home can be a life-changing experience.
Of course, quitting a steady job with a regular guaranteed salary to start a small business is often a very daunting prospect. You will face financial risk and almost certainly work harder and for longer than you have in the past.
These negatives are balanced by the potential for great financial rewards and the likelihood of increased job satisfaction. If you are prepared to step outside of your comfort zone you may find greater happiness in your working life.
In the current economic climate no-one’s job is secure, so if you are offered voluntary redundancy it can be a great impetus to change your life completely. Another reason many people leave their jobs is to avoid the unpleasant expensive daily commute. Try to work out how much time and money you could save by running your own business closer to home.
