5 Reason Why Getting a Job Is RISKIER Than Starting A Business

Business idea

You want to start a business, why do you want to do that. Starting a business is risky, how are you going to start a business if you never started a business before. People always say that starting a business is risky, but if you look at the current state of the job market and you look at salaries and you look at the cost of living, getting a traditional job isn't that safe either.

That's why I believe that getting a traditional job is actually riskier than starting a business and I'll show you why 

1. Getting Hired Does Not Give You Job Security, Starting a Business Does.

Back to your grandparents time, you were just competing against people in your local community, that's just how things worked. You worked real IFFT and that was it

If we fast forward a generation or two, the world became a lot smaller with globalization and then you weren't just competing against people in your community, you're competing against people from all over the world.

If we fast-forward to the present day and to the foreseeable future, not only are you competing against people all over the world because you can outsource anything to anywhere now, but you're also competing against robots and automation

If your job pays you a $100,000 a year plus benefits, plus paid time off, plus weekends off to do a job, they can spend $500,000 up front to automate or even a million dollars up front to automate

Guess what's going to happen to your job. Sorry, George, you are fired.

I'm not trying to be cynical but let's be for real right now, we're in the beginning stages of a digital revolution where big businesses are trying to be leaner, because they don't want to have to pay for your benefits and your pensions, your vacations and all of that stuff and so they're trying to automate whatever they can

If you're an entrepreneur, well, now you're in charge. You don't have to hope and pray for your boss to not go out and find somebody on the other of the world to do your job cheaper, and you don't have to hope and pray that your boss will find a way to automate your job or hire a robot

Guess what's going to happen to your job. Sorry, George, you are fired again.

Without getting too deep into this you don't have to just drop everything and leave everything to go and start a business, you can start something on the side and work slow and part-time until you're ready to quite other things if that's what you want to do

2. Let's Talk About Your Money

Life is getting very expensive because the price of things keep going up with inflation and the amount of money you're making from your job is nowhere near keeping up. In today's time, people are graduating with more debt than ever and they're getting paid the same amount as before and the cost of living is breaking record highs

I am no genius but that doesn't seem like a good thing, there will always be a limit to how much money you make when you get a traditional job. There's only so many hours in a day then you can exchange for a dollars.

When you start a business there's no cap because you're not trading your hours for dollars, if you were selling notebooks, you are not limited to selling just one notebook an hour, you can sell 10 notebooks an hour or a hundred notebooks an hour, even while you're sleeping
We all only have 24 hours in a day, if you spend all of your energy and focus at your job you know the maximum amount you'll be able to earn.
But if you reshift your energy and focus into your business now the opportunities are endless.

3. The Option For Freedom

Right now in America, Americans are working way longer than expected because life is a lot more expensive than we thought, it was going to be and if you're not working, you're not getting paid.
  • Again where do you want to focus your energy, your time and your effort, a job or a business? Both of them are hard in their own way but they both have different potential outcomes
Starting a business is not easy, let's make sure that's clear, but now you'll be putting your energy into something and your focus into something that will give you the opportunity to have a lot more freedom later on.

But what if your business fails

What if you don't fail and your business succeeds then what, I mean you don't know until you try and even if you do fail I can pretty much guarantee that you're going to learn something very useful that you can apply to something else, and if you're not willing to learn, try and work then you will fail.

4. The Cost To Start A Business

Starting a business is expensive. Before we get there, let's talk about the cost of getting a job, if you follow the traditional route of going to college and then getting a job, it's going to cost you, and according to collegedata.com a moderate college budget for the 2017 and 2018 school year was over $25,000, that cover your tuition, your housing, books, foods, etc.

Now take that $25,000 and some change and multiply it by 4 years of your education and now this is going to cost you over $100,000
  • According to Time Magazine, there is some good news, college graduates who are graduating in 2017 and 2018 could be looking at the highest starting salaries out of college at $50,000 a year or just over $4,000 a month after spending $100,000 and 4 years to get it

5. Let Talk About The Cost Of Starting A Business

Now with social media and the internet, it is now cheaper and easier than ever to start a business fair less than a thousand dollars if you have the right mindset

It's very possible and there's a handful of companies that you've probably heard of that started with less than $1,000

Subway, Hp, Dell, all started with $1,000 or less.

That's it forks, now you can decide how you want to leave your life if want to keep working for your boss or starting your own business at a side. If you like this article do follow us on the social network
