why do people start a small business

Starting one's business can be scary for any first-time entrepreneur without wealthy parents backing them up. You have to believe in yourself and make daring decisions over and over. From deciding that you will not get a full-time job to investing in the business and making several business decisions on your own.


Becoming an entrepreneur you will get rid of your self-limiting belief like never before. You will learn that nothing is to be scared of. You will learn that your comfort zone keeps expanding every time you get out of your comfort zone.


You will learn to initiate contacts and approach people. You will learn to make things happen and even if you have no idea about something, you will learn about it in every way you can without doubt and without fear.


Over and over, this becomes a habit. You will have built this boldness in you and will become used to getting out of your comfort zone
It is interesting to contemplate what drives people to start a business. Starting a business of your own requires money, many hours of hard work, patience and the understanding that you might not make a whole lot of money the first year or two or your business could fail completely.


According to the Small Business Administration (see SBA reference - page 1), approximately 30 percent of small businesses close their doors within the first two years.


Yet people still start their own businesses on a regular basis. There are many factors that drive entrepreneurs to strike out on their own.
