It’s a fact that business is the best job. There is no debate on it, but still, I believe that job is better than business for the majority.
The reason is that not everyone can afford the hard work, patience, and stress that they inherit with business.
Keeping that stress apart, let’s see why business is the best job. Why passionate and committed people must go for business.
If you are confused and looking for career advice, these undebated reasons also have job vs business comparisons that will help you decide what’s better for you.
It makes you a responsible person
When you invest your money, time, and energies in something, you start loving it.
The same happens in business.
Once you are in business, it naturally aligns your soul with the business to succeed. The alignment that you get while working on a business, makes you a responsible person.
You might be thinking that even in other jobs, you are always responsible. You can’t get late, you can’t miss the targets, you work for growth and success. Then what’s the difference?
Here is what differentiates it.
When you are doing a business, you work hard, put in your efforts, and energies, even when no one is asking for it. You love the stress and struggle, and you want to grab others to work on it.
On the other hand, when you are a jobholder, you always wish to leave the job, get out of stress, miss the targets, and start your own business.
I hope the difference is crystal-clear.
It gives you a sense of ownership
I do understand that well-established companies give a sense of ownership to all their employees. It’s good and productive for both. Companies take care of employees, and employees take care of companies.
But while working for any company, employees never forget that they are employees and they don’t own anything.
On the contrary, even you have a startup, you always have a sense of ownership. The feel makes you proud.
The pride isn’t for having a business, making money, or being boss, but it’s an internal peace that you get with creation.
If you are a married person and have children, you might have felt the same feelings about having children. When your child succeeds, it makes you happy.
You have no boss
If you have worked as an employee, you must have had some bad experiences with your boss. At least, you might have heard that boss is always right.
If your boss has ordered something, you can’t refuse it, otherwise, you will bear the consequences.
However, while working for your business, you are the boss.
It makes you special
Less than 10% of people own businesses. If you are in business, you are among those special people who dare to put everything at risk and make things happen.
Imagine yourself as a business owner, feel it for a while.
Isn’t it enough to feel blessed?
You work on your dreams
If you don’t see any remarkable difference in other aspects, then this aspect is enough to make it clear why business is the best job.
You can get all other benefits in some other jobs, but you can’t achieve your goals and dreams while working for others.
For example, if Elon Musk had gone to an office, and had said to the business owner. I have a dream to start a company like SpaceX. Please, start it and I shall work for you.
Was this ever going to happen?
SpaceX is a reality because Elon Musk started working on his dreams at his own office.
It helps you grow quickly
As we interact with new things, approaches, and people, we always learn from them. That’s called our exposure.
As many things or people we interact with, as experienced we are. This experience helps us grow.
In business, you have more opportunities to interact with a variety of people and approaches, hence it helps you grow quicker than in any other job.
It gives you more opportunities for advancements
In business, you always think of opportunities for advancements. If you don’t get the opportunities, you produce them.
For instance, if you were offering a services business, you can add a few more services, you can start offering products, etc. Hence you have huge opportunities for advancements.
On the flip side, in a job, the advancements belong to salary increases, promotions, securities, etc.
It makes you worthwhile
Job and business are completely different things.
Let me explain it to you, once again.
In a job, you can make more than a small business owner, you can start investing your savings, and it can make you rich.
But it won’t make you as worthwhile as a small business owner who is making pretty less than you.
Every business has the same departments. Every business owner has to take care of every department. A business owner has experienced budgeting, management, implementation, scaling, and much more.
A jobholder never does that.
If you are in the sales department, you will never know how the production department works.
That means even a small business owner who is making less than a jobholder has more exposure to things, and hence more worthwhile.
This value itself is wealth. If you have ran a successful business, and you successfully closed it, you can become an independent consultant for the rest of your life.
Business helps you retire young
Jobholders are always worried about getting fired, they can never think of early age retirement.
You might have read “George S. Clason“, Robert Kiyosaki, Jim Rohn, and other similar authors, and you might be thinking that a jobholder can get retired early if he saves 20% of his income, invests wisely somewhere, and generates different passive income streams.
Yes, it’s true that if anyone in the world follows the same formula he/she can get rich and retire.
The question is, how many jobholders do you know who save 20% and invest wisely?
The ratio must be less than 1% (if you could luckily find some). You will see that all of them will move to business one day.
Hence, working for others can never get you to retire at any age. It’s a business that helps people retire young.
It’s a fact that a job is easier than a business. The reason is that job has security, peace, and more opportunities to get hired.
But those who have an entrepreneurial approach, dare to take responsibility, want to achieve their dreams, and make things happen, it’s business that adopts those people. If you are one of those, surely, you should prefer business over a job.
There are some matchless benefits of a business that make business the best job in the world. We have discussed all those undebated reasons for which you can choose business over a job. Also, we have briefly explained when and why business is the best job.
