What does it take to be your own boss?

No matter what sector or role you work in, most of us wish we could work for ourselves. However it is difficult to take a step that large when you don’t know for sure what qualities you have that would make you a good boss.

The first question is; why? Why do you want to do it in the first place? Are you tired of working for someone else? Maybe you have been counting the pennies and despite the good advice from journals and websites, like for UK citizens, you feel a career change would be beneficial too. Do you want to have flexible hours controlled by you or just fancy the challenge?

The second thing to consider is what it takes to be your own boss. Most business owners don’t plan on it initiall

Top Four Necessities for Being Your Own Boss

Confidence – In general being your own boss has a lot to do with confidence and belief in your own ability. Many use their own lack of experience as an excuse to not go down the business path. If you endeavor to improve your skills though, are organized and maybe find a mentor to help you, anyone can do it.

Drive – There is a mistaken belief that you have to be ruthless and money orientated to own a business, but in actual fact most entrepreneurs do it for the love of working for themselves and a passion for their industry. It is this which makes them driven. Drive is key to most successful businesses, but what are you driving towards? More money? Higher output?

Experience – when you are your own boss you are working based on your own experience of the industry you work in. Even the negative experiences under someone else’s employ will help steer a new business owner in the right direction.

Education – make sure you are up to date with all the latest information that will help you run your business. You will always have a weakness and you can either do a course (there a tons out there) to educate yourself, or if you have the funds, hire someone to handle that aspect.
