7 Reasons Why You Must Start a Business Now

Everyone needs to start a business now. Here are 7 reasons why this is true:

  1. You won’t get fired from your own business.
  2. In your own business, if your boss turns out to be a jerk or an idiot, you can make him (or her) change.
  3. Despite government meddling, owning a business is the best tax strategy going.
  4. It’s more fulfilling than working for someone else.
  5. Every day you get to start over.
  6. You literally write your own paycheck.
  7. You help others while helping yourself.

Here’s a bonus reason that addresses the “now” part: “now” is the only time you have. “Someday” is just code for “never”.

Please note: I reserve the right to delete comments that are offensive or off-topic.

  • “Someday is just code for Never”. That line was in the new movie Knight and Day, good stuff, Ray.

  • “Someday” is just code for “never”.

    Love that, regardless of where it comes from!

    It made me think of procrastination habits. If you have something to do, why not just go and do it? That's exactly what I shall do.
