There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur… Take advantage of these 7 reasons why:

1) It’s never been more affordable.

From entrepreneurial education to the ability to work from anywhere, it’s never been more affordable to start your own business.

2) Easy-to-use and readily-available technology.

Need something automated for your business? There’s an app for that. But seriously, there is pretty much software out there for every possible need you may have in your business. Whether it be accounting, analytics, social media management, marketing automation, it exists, and if it doesn’t, you may have just found your business idea!

3) Low time commitment to get started. 

To ultimately be successful, we recommend that you eventually go “all in”… but before you hit a certain point, you definitely can start by working on the side of your full-time job, until your business starts getting traction. Sometimes this means burning the midnight oil, but it will be worth it in the end.

4) Lower risk. 

Starting your own business is a high-risk endeavor. However, the risk of putting your faith in another company can be higher than controlling your destiny. Why? With the economy the way it is, you never know if you’re going to be in the next round of layoffs.

5) Globalization. 

The internet and globalization have made it easier than ever to source physical products and services from another country at an affordable price.

6) Virtual delegation at your fingertips. 

After the economic downturn, many people turned to working through freelancing sites… Meaning it is easier than ever to hire a virtual team with the right set of skills.

7) Entrepreneurial education is easily accessible. 

With the world wide web, it’s never been easier to gain the skills and connections you need to build a successful business.
