Business Mentor: Why you should start a side business 1

If you are an entrepreneur, what pushed you to become one?

Some people are born with such creative minds. They want to know if they can create something that would benefit others while providing a steady source of income. They like a challenge.

Others meanwhile are no longer feel happy with their job and realize that being a mere employee is not helping them reach their goals. They want to spread their wings and try something new.

Others like to be in charge so that they can make things happen.

Some are driven to start their own business out of necessity. They realize that sometimes, no matter how much you tighten your belt, you still can’t cover the basic necessities.

Others just want to taste the feeling of accomplishment. Because it does feel great knowing that a small business you built has become successful.

Financial advisers also recommend that people have various streams of income besides your job.

A side business provides an opportunity for you to earn more than what you are earning now.

Aside from having your own business, you can also invest your extra funds.

I’m not a financial expert, but I know that there are opportunities out there waiting to be discovered, which can be a good source of income, especially when you reach retirement.

You may choose to invest in real estate, high-interest savings accounts, stocks, or a business.

Many fear the word “investment” thinking that this is only for rich people.

But, when you really think about it, we all need to set aside a portion of our monthly earnings so that we can have something to enjoy when we grow older.

This is one of the reasons why some millennial entrepreneurs are trying to become successful at a young age. They want to retire early and live the rest of their lives happy and stress-free.

Would you now consider having a side business while being employed? I think that is truly a great idea!
