People are built different, they think differently, they talk differently, they work differently, and they want differently. People want different things from life. In the business world, where professionals can always be seen attracted to starting a business of their own as they that 9-5 routine doesn't provide them the feeling of contentment.
This Job Vs Business debate has confused many brilliant minds and would continue to do so if people fail to realize what do they want along with what works the best for them. In this article, we will discuss some of the reasons why entrepreneurs leave their businesses to go to work for someone else. So, keep an open mind and try to understand the sincerity of the words.
A Job Provides An Enriching Experience
People often start their businesses thinking that they know enough to be starting an empire. But as time goes on, they realize that they do not know enough to make their business reach their maximum potential. This is the time they realize they need to join or work for someone else who has the expertise and could provide them with the relevant experience. It is almost like paid education.
Acknowledgment And Motivation
Some people who abruptly make the decision to start their own business do not really realize the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to build a business. Many times this hard work is not thanked enough. This causes a sense of hopelessness and a lack of motivation and drives to keep doing better. When you are in a job, you are time and again acknowledged, incentivized, and rewarded for the great work that you do. This motivation and appreciation is a very important factor for some of the businessmen to quit their business and start working for others.
ALthough People know that a business goes through all kinds of phases and ups and downs are the only constants in a business. However, some fail to take the pressure that tough times cause and they give up by quitting the business to go work for someone else. The regular paychecks and stable income is something that lures some of the entrepreneurs to go back to doing what used to do earlier. One can not deny the sense of relief that tags along with stable income especially if you have a family to provide for.
To Make A Difference
People may be impeccably good at what they do but still might not get the desired results. Some people are ambitious which is not at all a negative trait but sometimes leaves a person less fulfilled with the difference they are making with their business. Some people do not have the required patience to wait and see a business grow eventually, hence they leave to join a bigger organization to make the most of their skills and make a bigger difference with the help of a bigger platform.
The reason behind explaining all this is just to make you aware if you are ready yet to be starting your own business and not at all to discourage the entrepreneur within you. It is all about taking your own time, learning all that you need, and gaining enough wisdom to be enduring all that it takes to build a successful business so that you do not see it as a mistake midway.
