1) Being your own boss
Have you ever felt tired of taking commands from parents, teachers, and society do this, do that ? Instead of that, how does it feel if you’re the one who is commanding the employees in your organization and you’re the one who is the decision maker?
In general, the CEO is the top and face of the organization who knows everything that is going on in the organization and makes necessary changes to improve things. From obeying every order to making decisions, that’s how entrepreneurs are born. It does sound cool being bossy, doesn’t it?
2) Financial Freedom
Have you ever searched, “Who is the richest person in the world?”. If you do so, you get to know that it’s none other than Elon musk, who is the co-founder and CEO of Tesla with a net worth of $191.2 billion. Entrepreneurs have greater financial freedom because they are not constrained to salary, according to policy study report, estimates that 80% of S&P 500 companies pay their CEO over 100 times more than they pay their median workers. Entrepreneurs own the company and generally have a large share of profits.
Do you know Elon owns 172.6 million Tesla shares, which makes him Tesla’s single largest individual shareholder and that’s how he got immensely rich and also a billionaire. Financial freedom is a dream of every person, but only a few achieve it and entrepreneurs are exceptional in it.

3) Identity & Reputation
How does it feel while introducing yourself or getting introduced? “Hi, I’m working at XY company as and so” v/s “Hi, I’m running XY company as a CEO, glad to meet you.”
Which one for you feels proud and super cool? For entrepreneurs and leaders, reputation is the most valuable asset and a strong reputation makes it easier to earn respect among peers and determines your future opportunities. In society and social gatherings, your reputation speaks before you, that’s how entrepreneurs are treated and valued.
4) Job Creator
In one part or another of your life you will find yourself in a situation where you’re sitting opposite an interviewer and come across the question “why should we hire you?” right that moment you realize “you’re running for an opportunity instead of creating one”.
Entrepreneurs are great risk-takers and create employment opportunities not only for themselves but also for many others as well. From searching for a shelter to providing shelter to others, entrepreneurs contribute in every way to society, not only in job creation but also helps in boosting up the country’s economy by creating new products and services.
5) Creating a Better World
Imagine a world without smartphones and personal computers. Our world is driven and advanced by technology but usually, technological innovations are turned into solid businesses by entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, Bill gates, Elon musk, Jeff Bezos, and many others are redefining the world with better technology and making it accessible to each and every individual. Entrepreneurs shape the world in such a way we lose ourselves in it.
