Advocates in entrepreneurship, Managing Direct Paul Gillett of AJG Direct, outlines 5 fundamental reasons why young people should pursue entrepreneurship.
AJG Direct are entrepreneurial advocates who encourage growth and development through business mentoring services, alongside their direct marketing strategies. When the firm selects their contractors, a key factor in determining their success is their entrepreneurial flair. It is this attribute that the firm believes has allowed them to form an elite force of independent contractors.
MD Paul Gillett has outlined five fundamental reasons why young people should pursue entrepreneurship.
- The opportunity to control your destiny
Entrepreneurs are able to determine the company culture, processes and structure. They can adapt successful business models to suit a niche market or deliver the service they feel the consumer needs. Entrepreneurs can be fuelled by the cause and earn great money as a by-product.
- Freedom to spend your time doing what’s important to you
Entrepreneurship, if done correctly, allows an individual to evaluate what is important and schedule work commitments around those tasks to achieve a great work-life balance. Entrepreneurs have to display great discipline to achieve business success and still maintain all the additional out of work commitments.
- Unlimited earning possibilities
Entrepreneurs determine their own pay check. By maintaining an innovative venture that is adaptable to any market allows entrepreneurs to sustain a lifestyle many can only dream of.
- Location independence
Many people dislike their morning commute. Entrepreneurs can choose the location of their business venture, whether it is at home initially, in their favourite city or in a more rural setting. The key is to select a location that encourages business opportunities but suits the individual’s lifestyle.
- The chance to leave a lasting legacy
Entrepreneurs can build a business that their family can be proud of and encourage the younger generation to keep the torch alive. Many entrepreneurs enjoy the family aspect of the journey; they can often share the success with those they love.
