Several reasons to make a life changing decision!
There is a long list of reasons for you to look at starting a business. I’m sure you have heard several of them, like “I want to make more money” or “I’ve always dreamed of being my own boss” but the reality is different people start businesses for different reasons.
Reasons to start a business

Owning your own business means being your own boss, deciding when you work, how you work, and what you work on.
Of course, business owners still do need to do their research and look at the market demand. But when you become the business owner, you choose how to do that. It gives you greater autonomy.
