The advantages of running your own business
(4:30) “So why do I think that running your own business is the best thing for this freedom. Well, by definition it gives you the freedom because you are now your own boss, you are literally the CEO of your business, your career and your life which you should be anyways. And you get to decide exactly what your business will be like, what your business model will be, what your brand is going stand for, which kind of clients you’re going to work with, what projects you will and won’t take on, how you will and won’t do the work.”
(6:56) “Flexibility means being able to control your working hours and work mainly more, take on more projects or take on less projects depending on your wants and needs, at that time, maybe you have lots of spare time and energy, enthusiasm, you need the money so you want to take on more work and then other times you want to take a step back so you can say no to projects.”
(10:24) “Finding fulfilment in our work gives us that sense of purpose and direction, a reason for getting out of bed in the morning. It makes the challenges seem less and we talked about the reality of running your business last week again and they become less important again as we can see the bigger picture of the difference that we’re making in the world the impact we are having, and somehow that gives us more energy and drive, however demanding the work may be.”
