Starting a business is an exciting journey. Many new start-up owners say that nothing beats owning your own business. Here are some of the great benefits you’ll likely find as you take the steps to start-up.
Set yourself free
Imagine only having to answer to yourself, with no-one telling you what to do. As a small business owner, you call the shots. Your business, your decisions; you’re the boss.
“There are three types of people in this world –people who make things happen, people who watch what happens and people who wonder what happens.” – Joanne Paul, Waiheke Movers
You’ll be amazed at the things you can achieve when you put your mind to it and step outside your comfort zone. Start on the journey and you’ll discover you’re capable of things you never thought possible.
“Acknowledge that the start-up journey is a rollercoaster of highs and lows, and learn to ride it.” - Ryan Sanders, Haka Tours
Love your work
Small business owners often enjoy work more than regular employees. That’s because when you’re invested in what you’re doing, the mental and financial rewards are all the sweeter.
“I love being creative and working with my hands and I really love working with people as well, seeing their expressions when you deliver the flowers and just being part of those people’s special moments.” – Kathryn Fleming, The Flower Project
“In a short period of time we've seen our concept go from being just an idea to a viable start-up business and we've worked really hard to grow that into an export operation that showcases the best of our Kiwi innovation.” – Fiona McIntyre, Passionberry
