There are always at least one or two things that we hate about our jobs and sometimes, those little things can build to the big reasons that lead to creating an online company that takes those issues away. While it feels like it could be a daunting task in a tough economy, there are plenty of ways that you can reduce your depression from your current office and become a happier person.
Of course, you’ll have to put in a lot of planning, developing a financial budget to afford everything you need from office space to office supplies to accomplish daily tasks. After that, there are a lot of ways that starting an online business can make you a much happier person with a lot less stress in your life.
Being your own boss
Depending on the level of hate, or at the very least a large feeling of dislike, turning in a two-week notice to your supervisor may cause so much excitement that builds through the final days that you countdown in your head. You may even run out of the office yelling “freedom!”
Freedom from having someone give you a long list of demands that, depending on the type of industry you work in, can be draining both physically and demanding. Everyone can relate to having a boss that can make even one of the most enjoyable jobs feel unbearable at times – which is what has led you to begin thinking about even wanting to start your own business.
And with the perfect outline, you’ll have a successful business where you can put yourself in a job that gives you as positive a work environment, as long as you make it that way – odds are you probably won’t make your job too tough otherwise there’s no point in creating an online business.
Doing what you want to do in life
In addition to having freedom from what could be a soul-draining and negative work environment that’s making you want to leave, you can focus on doing what you’ve always wanted to do in life.
Okay, maybe you aren’t going to be the astronaut you wanted to be when you were in elementary school. But finding your dream job can be done in your online business where you have full creative control and can market the business the way you want to base on your personal tastes and preferences.
Setting your own schedule
Are you not a necessarily a morning person and prefer to work in the afternoons and evenings? Or maybe you want to start early in the morning so you have more time to enjoy outdoor activities when the sun is out.
This is one of the key reasons why people want to enter the world of online entrepreneurship. This also means that you can avoid the morning and afternoon commutes, depending on if you are working from your home or you are able to add a nearby office into your budget.
Since you are also scheduling your own hours, you can decide to take your breaks and lunch time whenever you want so you, if you go to your favorite diner, don’t have to rush to devour your meal once your food arrives to your table.
No demanding dress code
Not everyone is comfortable wearing a suit and tie, or a fancy dress. Sometimes you just want to put on a pair of jeans that are clean enough to not scare off people and your favorite hooded sweatshirt that will keep you warm and dry if the weather has gone down a little.
For those who want to work from home with their online business, you don’t even have to jump in the shower and get dressed into normal, everyday clothes. You can still wear the pajamas you wore the night before, or the lack thereof depending on what you are comfortable with.
Granted, you still want to look pretty presentable if your online business requires you to meet with potential clients and business partners. This means you don’t want to wear anything with stains, noticeable odors or have a look that screams “straight out of school.”
Feeling of accomplishment
It’s not easy being a business owner and being able to run a business in today’s age provides a very good sense of having accomplished something big in life. And depending on what you want to do with your online business, you have an opportunity to make a big impact in not only your life, but others.
Maybe you are helping create jobs in your community that provides income for families in your neighborhood. Or you have an online business that can provide things like building a website for a young startup company to help them get noticed by the community – the ways of accomplishing great things for the community and people in it are endless.
An exciting challenge
Because there can be unexpected surprises, creating a new business can be an exciting challenge for those who have been bored by their previous jobs. Let’s face it, you want to do something new to break up what may be a monotonous position that creates the soul-draining environment that was mentioned in an earlier segment.
Depending on what your online business focus and model include, you can create how much your workload will be so you can challenge yourself every day without making it too taxing mentally and/or physically – which is part of why you wanted to leave your last job and create one specifically meant for yourself. Only you know what you are truly capable of and can handle without a problem.
Surrounded with success
If your online business requires creating additional jobs in your office, you have the opportunity to have the perfect coworkers you have ever had. You get to have a decision of the type of personalities you will have to deal with every day at the office and that can be a very intriguing idea if your current position includes people you don’t necessarily get along with.
