Claim Your Freedom Through Entrepreneurship

Freedom is generally defined as being free to do whatever it is you want to do. While the definition itself may be simple, the reality behind it looks a little different for every person. Our views on what freedom means are built on our life experiences, and they change with time as we move through different stages of life. 

Some of us view freedom as the ability to have a say in the way our country is governed. Others believe our right to express ourselves both verbally and in writing is what makes us free. And still, others view freedom as the ability to choose every morning what activities you are going to partake in and when you will do them. 

This latter definition of freedom is the one that drives the spirit of entrepreneurship. The freedom of entrepreneurship is so much more than just breaking away from the monotony of the 9-5 life. It is also about being the writer of your own destiny, reaping all the benefits of your hard work, and finding a place where your passion and purpose collide. As we’re sure you can imagine, diving into the world of entrepreneurship comes with a variety of freedoms. 

The Freedoms of Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurs are one of the main driving forces in today’s economy. They invest in their communities, create more jobs, and help to raise the standard of living for everyone else, and they get to do it all while experiencing a number of personal freedoms. 

The Freedom To Work On Your Passion

We’ve all heard the saying, “find your passion and it’s no longer work.” While we all have the opportunity to pursue a career path that we are passionate about, being the owner of your own business gives you even more freedom in this regard. You’ll get to tap into the ideas that make you happy without needing the approval of anyone else. You’ll get to improve on the skills you care most about and put them to work to help you earn an income. And you get to do it all without the restrictions of anyone else. 

The Freedom To Choose Your Work Space

What if you didn’t have to take time off of work whenever you wanted to travel? What if you could wake up each morning and decide to work at the coffee shop down the road instead of the office? As a business owner, this is exactly what you will be able to do. You will have the freedom to choose where you want to work. You will be able to work from the comfort of your own home, from the coffee shop down the road, or from the beach home you rented for a family vacation. 

The Freedom To Choose Your Own Goals

In a traditional 9-5 job, you may or may not have a say when it comes to your monthly, quarterly, and yearly goals. At the end of the day, those decisions would come from your boss. But as an entrepreneur, you’re the only person who makes the decisions. You get to choose how many sales you should make each month, how much revenue you should make each quarter, and how large the business should become within the next year. You have the freedom to make these goals however large or small you want them to be. 

The Freedom To Be Your Own Boss

When you work for someone else, you have to plan your days around that job You won’t be able to plan appointments or events during your usual work hours, you’ll have set times when you can take a lunch break, and you’ll have to request time off whenever you want to go on vacation. When you are running your own business, you get to choose your work hours and plan your days according to your lifestyle. If you need to take an afternoon off to visit with family or start later one morning because you overslept, you have the freedom to do so. 

The Freedom To Explore Opportunities 

Going into business requires one to be brave and ready to take on any challenges or opportunities that may arise. In entrepreneurship, you have the freedom to explore other opportunities to grow your business. You never know when opportunities from partnerships, business expansions, or new market trends will pop up, and as they do, you’ll be able to quickly evaluate them and adapt accordingly.  

Types Of Entrepreneurship

This all sounds great! So where do you begin? The first step is to decide which type of entrepreneur you want to be. Here are just a few of the ways you can become an entrepreneur. 

1. Start a Small Business 
Small business owners often pursue entrepreneurship as a way to embrace their own freedoms while supporting their family and sustaining their current lifestyle. Typically, small businesses are started by a single person without any goals to expand or dramatically scale the business in the future. Because of this, small business owners usually don’t have a large staff; although, many of them do hire a few employees to help with day-to-day operations. Some common examples of small businesses include local boutique shops, restaurants, catering services, and ecommerce stores. The main advantage of a small business is that it doesn’t take much to get started—you usually need minimal capital and a few family or friends to help you get things going. On the flip side, small businesses often come with a lot of unknowns. The most obvious one is whether or not the business will make money. After all, small business entrepreneurs only profit if their company does.

2. Buy a Business 
You’ve got to spend money to make money, right? For buyer entrepreneurs, that is definitely the case. While most of us think of entrepreneurs as people who started their own business from the ground up, buyer entrepreneurs get in on the action after a business has been established or while it is developing. They do their research to find a promising business, then proceed to purchase it and takes steps to help it thrive. Soemtimes, this means stepping up and running the business yourself, and other times it requires finding a more suitable person to run it for you. Purchasing a company that is already established greatly reduces the risk involved in becoming an entrepreneur; however, it also requires a lot of money upfront, which isn’t feasible for most of us.   

3. Get Innovative 
Innovative entrepreneurs are passionate about coming up with the next big thing, and they often change the way people do and think about things. They are motivated by their idea and often find unique ways to bring it to the market. The beauty of innovative entrepreneurship is that you are selling something no one else has, which makes it special and appealing when it hits the market. However, the fact that your product is unique means that this type of business often requires a lot of capital up front for a product that isn’t guaranteed to be a success. 

4. Be Social
We all want to leave this world better than we found it, which is exactly what social entrepreneurs are on a mission to do. With this type of business, the main focus is contributing to the greater good of society. This can look like a lot more than just starting a non-profit organization. It also encompasses for-profit organizations or hybrid companies that are committing to contributing to environmental or social change. Furthermore, this type of entrepreneurship can be combined with the others to help you create the business of your dreams. You could come up with an innovative way to bring fresh drinking water to third world countries. You could purchase an up and coming ecommerce store that donates a portion of it’s proceeds to a particular cause. You could even help others improve their own health and wellness as a physical trainer, nutritionist, or Wellness Entreprenuer. The possibilities are endless.
