Why I Enjoy What I Do

A few weeks ago I talked about living the dot com lifestyle. I really enjoy living the dot com lifestyle and I’m so happy that I am able to make a living online. It was a big step for me to quit college and go full steam with the internet business and at the time I had doubts on if it would work out, but now I couldn’t imagine it any other way. While running your own business can be very stressful and you can easily lose motivation, but there are always positive points to what I’m doing and whenever I’m feeling stressed out I always remember them and think I could be working a regular 9-5. So here are the major reasons why I enjoy what I do.

Love My Job
I have always been interested in computers and the internet and I am glad that my job revolves around that industry. I really like that I am able to check out new gadgets each week and be able to go to conventions like CES and E3. Many people can say they like their job, but not that many can say they love their job, honestly I cannot see myself doing anything else.

I’m My Own Boss
The one thing that I really hated about all of my previous jobs were my boss’s. They always seemed to be pissed off all the time and always had a bad attitude and would take their frustrations out on me. There is nothing better than being your own boss, there is no one telling you what to do, yelling at you, and always looking over your shoulder.

This probably has to be the thing that I enjoy the most about what I do. I’m not stuck inside an office every day from 9-5. I don’t have a set number of hours to work each day or week. I have no real schedule, which means if I want to stay up late I can, or if I want to sleep in till noon I can. Because I have freedom I am able to do things when I want and if you are able to do that you should be happy. I don’t have to worry about calling off work if something comes up I know I can just go.

The list of reasons why I enjoy what I do could go on and on, but these are the three most important to me. With good things there are bad, I will be following this post up with one on some of the bad things that go along with running your own business.
