Wayne Hurlbert, over at Blog Business World, has a fascinating post up this morning on the rising rate of entrepreneurship in our society.
Entrepreneurship has made a resurgence, in recent years, as a viable career option for many people. While starting, operating, and managing one’s own business isn’t for everyone, the pride of independent business ownership appeals to those individuals who want to be their own boss. Making one’s own decisions about the current and future direction of a company, and one’s own future, is both thrilling and satisfying.
For most of the Twentieth Century, the stress was placed on getting a good job that led to a lifetime career with a single company. Somewhere in the 1970s and 1980s, that idyllic concept flew right out of the window. By the end of the century, it was well established that everyone would have multiple careers with several widely differing employers. During that realization that careers in the traditional sense were fading into history, the older ideal of entrepreneurship made a triumphant return to glory.
Wayne has summed up many of the reasons why I’ve decided to start my own business, rather than go to work for someone else. Read the whole thing, and let me know in the comments section of this post what you think of becoming an entrepreneur!
