Do You Own Your Own Business? Or . . . .

Jul 6th 2010 at 11:04 AM

Do you own your own business?

Do you own a hobby?

Or, do you own a job?

Owning your own business means that even if you are not there, the business still makes you money.

Owning a hobby means that you don’t make any money and sometimes you even lose money at what you are doing…a hobby does not pay the bills.

When most people think that they own their own business, they really only own a job. Sure, they’ve created a lifestyle that they are the boss (or at least they think they are — when in reality their customers are the boss) and they write their own paycheck, but many times if they leave the business….even to go on vacation, no money comes in.

Being a true business owner really allows you the freedom of leaving town knowing that your business is still making money.

One way to ensure that your business continues with or without you is to make sure you have the proper marketing strategies in place.

Do you have a blog, a social media following, an advertising budget and campaign?

Are you promoting affiliate products through your current businesses website (no matter whether it’s an “online business” or a traditional brick and mortar business)?

Do you want to control your business? Or do you want your business to control you?

Think about it — and to your success!

"when in reality their customers are the boss" Hey you get it. As the owner of a brick an mortar business, I have preached to my employees the customers are their boss not me. Enjoyable article with a nice insightful view. Great Job!
