- Me? An Entrepreneur?
I would like to have my own business as a freelance consultant for organizational development or as a freelance Spanish translator. Having my own business would give me the opportunity to be my own boss, to set my own schedule, and to seek out my own opportunities.
I want to be my own boss because I don't want to answer to someone who doesn't have my best interest in mind. I'm an independent person and I want to make decisions for myself about my career. If I were my own boss, I could manager my career more effectively and not have to concern myself with all of the issues that one faces when working for a company such as office politics and favoritism.
One of the benefits of being my own boss would be that I would have the freedom to create my own schedule. This would give me more time to enjoy my hobbies and to pursue new interests. I also feel it would be easier for me to take vacation time.
Another benefit would be that I would have more control of which opportunities I'd participate in. I could choose my own projects and professional development programs that would benefit me the most.
I don't feel that being my own boss would be easier. I think it would be more work since I'd be responsible for everything. However, I believe that being in control of my own destiny would be worth it.
