The undertaking is a challenge, and like any challenge, it is intimidating.

The important thing is to cross that choppy sea with serenity and poise, always keeping in mind the reasons that push us forward.
If you are a restless young man and you are not very sure about it, this guide may help you find your deep reasons and lose that natural fear of entrepreneurship. After all, it’s all about taking steps on your own, with no one telling you what to do, and that can always be a challenge.
Let us then give you five reasons to undertake at your age and thus get excited about that vast path that you have so much desire to travel.
5 reasons to be a young entrepreneur
1. You are the owner of your time
If there is something in the world today that is as precious or more precious than capital and goods, it is time. Working, if you think about it a bit, is trading your time for someone else’s money, who is free to choose how they spend their hours freely. Why not be that person? As an entrepreneur, you decide your schedules and your life plans, without having to follow a structure designed by others according to their needs. Entrepreneurship is taking control of your life and, of course, with the responsibilities and obligations that this entails. But you can choose what they are.
2. You have your own style
Freedom is that: deciding how you want to live your life. And a young entrepreneur is guided, above all, by that desire for uniqueness, to be unique in a field that is suited to their passions, their interests, their deep motivations. And who is going to tell you how to do it but yourself? The world advances thanks to those who defy the traditional rules.
3. You are financially autonomous
That is, you generate your money and decide how to spend it. An enterprise will not necessarily be a gold mine (at least not right off the bat), but it will undoubtedly be managed as you decide to do it, since the monthly rewards you decide to grant to yourself and your work team will depend not on others, but of the achievements that together they have been able to achieve. It is a feedback process: greater achievements, more money, and more motivation for future successes.
4. You are 100% owner of your decisions
Do you want to change the bouquet, or add a new one, or bet on that project in which you have a lot of faith? You no longer need to convince anyone, or beg for an opportunity with the boss. You are your own boss, so the decisions are made as you say (and the consequences are faced in the same way, obviously). Why wait years to earn the respect and trust of managers, if you can start your own business and succeed in your own way?
5. You will create something from nothing
And believe it or not, that is one of the greatest satisfactions in the world, whether the venture succeeds or fails halfway. As the proverb says, no one will take away your dancing, and that experience in your own business will be key for subsequent projects, it will make you grow and understand the world from a unique perspective.
And in case these five reasons don’t convince you, why not take a look at the personal stories of successful entrepreneurs? You will be surprised to realize how similar they are to the moment you live and the needs you have. If they could, why couldn’t you?
