10 Reasons To Start A Second Income Business
10 Reasons To Start A Second Income Business By Cynthia Minnaar
It is not very easy to find a really strong reason why one should start a second income business when life is going well and we have no financial worries.
But, we never know what life has in store for us. Life can be comfortable and easy one day and turned upside down the next, so it makes good business sense to have a second income just in case something does go wrong.
Do you ever wonder what the motivating factors behind successful business owners are? Here are some of the reasons that motivate people to start and succeed with second income business which may just give you food for thought.
1. Prices continue to escalate but few have sat down and calculated how much they will need to enable them to retire and live comfortably. The result of this calculation can be a huge motivating factor to start a second income business.
2. Losing their job or being retrenched and having to find a way to generate their own income in order to provide for their family.
3. The need to educate their children and also fund their college or university fees should they wish to attend.
4. The desperate search to find a way of quitting the daily job or corporate world.
5. Desperately wanting to stay at home with the children so as to avoid the heart break felt every morning by many mothers when they drop a child off at the day care center or not being at home to welcome the child home from school or being unable to attend a school sports function or concert.
6. The need to get more out of life instead of just existing, as they just cannot afford the extra luxuries or holidays and being sick and tired of scraping through the month until next pay day.
7. The problem of mounting debt due to the fact that a salary can no longer cover the basic expenses.
8. Being encumbered unexpectedly by a huge expense resulting from for example a car accident or illness.
9. Finally being totally fed up with the amount time wasted and stress involved in travelling to and from a day job which means having less quality time to spend with their family.
10. A lot of people these days look for ways to make a second income so that they can help their ageing parents financially, as their pension is just insufficient to cover their expenses.
The reasons above are only a few that motivate people to start and succeed with a second income business.
Whatever your reason, one must remember that as it takes time to build a profitable second income business it is important not to wait for disaster to strike before getting started.
Be prepared and rather plan ahead and try and find a strong enough reason to start a second income business now, so that it is already providing an income for you when you most need it.
