But here are some of the reasons why becoming self-employed may be the key to your happiness.

Be Your Own Boss

Many people who have decided to become self-employed in the past, have quoted that working for other people just wasn’t for them. Many management teams and bosses can clash with this stuff. And the results of this don’t go unnoticed. Being your own boss and making decisions about your own business, without anyone else telling you what to do has enormous appeal. It’s worked for many people before, but that doesn’t mean to say you are going to need help from somebody. No doubt becoming self-employed is hard work, from the beginning, but it certainly pays off to be your own boss. Although when starting a business, renting a flatbed may be one of the most significant decisions that you need to make, to begin with. But it’s good to remember that you will be the one to make the decisions the whole way.

More Time

Having more time to do the things that you enjoy is invaluable, and if time spent working is doing something you love most, it is the holy grail of business. Of course, most of us go into business. I was cells to earn money. However, the saying goes that if you do what you love, then you never have to work a day in your life. There is a reason for this even though you may find yourself tired from all the hours you’re putting into getting your dream off the ground, you will feel as though you have more time to do the things you love since this is what you are doing with all of your time starting your business

Mental health

This is an essential point that we can’t stress enough when it comes to making big life decisions. Sometimes the environment that we work in is awful for mental health. Whether it’s the long hours and unhealthy environment or alongside people that aren’t good for us, either way, being self-employed will remove all of those obstacles. Of course, becoming self-employed does bring its own barriers, and it isn’t a walk in the park. However, it tends to suit many people that might not be able to cope in a traditional work setting. Also, providing you don’t put off your customers, you can say or do whatever you like since it’s your business.


Many people choose to become a digital nomad because it really suits their lifestyle. Been able to write or manage social media anywhere in the world, thanks to modern technology and Wi-Fi access in very many areas, opens up a whole new world for many people. Packing an overnight bag and getting on a plane with your laptop, knowing that you’re still able to complete your daily allocation of work, means a certain level of freedom that not many people are lucky enough to achieve. It takes real dedication and self-control, however, to not get distracted during this process. And to be able to get the work done. Many people, though they have traveled the world while carrying out their day-to-day work, which means they can fund their travels, be their own boss, and see the world at the same time. Some might say these people are living the dream.
