10 Reasons I am THANKFUL to be an Entrepreneur!

This week is full of gratitude, thanksgivings, and messages all over about blessings.  There is so much for each of us to be thankful for in our lives and we can often get caught up in the daily routine, giant to-do list, and creative chaos of our entrepreneurial lives and thus forget the bounty of miracles.

Here are the 10 Reasons that I am so very thankful to be an Entrepreneur (let me know which ones you relate to):

Reason #1:  I can create.  I am using this amazing brain that God gave me.

Reason #2:  I can be flexible.  I can work when I want, as much as I want, and sometimes more than I want.  But I am working for God and that feels good.

Reason #3  I can invest.  I can invest in my learning, training, education, coaching, and mentoring in ways that fit for me.

Reason #4:  I can hire people that I believe in.  This includes my clients, members, virtual assistants, graphic designers, coaches, joint venture partners, and more.  I can support another entrepreneur and help him/her as they do what they are called to do.

Reason #5:   I can move fast.  I can go as fast as I want to go and not wait for approval from bureaucracy.  I can move slow if I need to, or take some time off if I am not feeling well.

Reason #6:  I can change a program or a sales page.  I can add something or rearrange it.  I can update it.  I can improve it. I can adapt, improve, and grow.

Reason #7:  I can decide yes or no, or not yet.  I can act on my own behalf and the behalf of the members without waiting for a week or a month to get an answer from someone.

Reason #8:  I can make mistakes and learn from them.  I can help others see that they don’t have to be perfect.

Reason #9:  I can have fun with my passion, use my gifts, and live my mission.

Reason #10:  I can pray as often as needed and on calls, trainings and webinars.

Happy Thanksgiving my friends!

    Diane, that just about sums it up for me too! It started out with a need to get out of the workforce of a very stressful job! I do however, enjoy being an entrepreneur and doing a business God has called me to do!

    I like it because it makes me location independent. I love traveling and working oversees. I also like working outside the books. I never liked punching numbers into a computers; working as an employee just wasn’t *me*
