WHETHER buy­ing a fran­chise, join­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties such as Avon or starting a new brand, own­ing your own busi­ness has many ben­e­fits.

As the boss of your own busi­ness, you get the op­por­tu­nity to choose your hours, who you work with and get close to your lo­cal com­mu­nity to find out what they want from their lo­cal busi­ness.

Work­ing for your­self al­lows you to fo­cus on your pas­sions and skills mean­ing work hours are just as fun and re­ward­ing as play hours.

Buy­ing into a fran­chise can be the most straight­for­ward way to get started, as the fran­chise will come with its own for­mat, work­place reg­u­la­tions, decor and an al­ready es­tab­lished brand and loyal cus­tomers.

An­other way to be­come part of a well-known name is be a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for a com­pany like Avon, a great way to work to your own sched­ule and leave out the stress of man­ag­ing a leased space and other staff.

For those with life­styles that don’t fit the nine to five rou­tine, work­ing from home is a sim­ple so­lu­tion, with a com­puter, in­ter­net and phone, sav­ing you com­mut­ing time and money on rent­ing of­fice space.

Your dream could be run­ning a restau­rant, a mo­bile hair­dress­ing ser­vice, becoming a per­sonal trainer, or you might have gone through an ex­pe­ri­ence where you saw a need in the mar­ket for a prod­uct or busi­ness to fill the gap.

What­ever your pas­sion, own­ing your busi­ness gives you the free­dom to work for you.
