Three Reasons to Start a Business Now

July 17, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

I’m part of the chorus you hear singing that now is a great time to start a business.

Here are three reasons why.

#1. We really are moving into a different phase of the global economy. The world’s economic systems are working together in ways that allow a lot of businesses to start and grow. Gone is the stigma attached to being a small, independent business. More and more businesses know their counterparts are small and independent. Go ahead and start a business because you’re in a well-accepted crowd.

#2. The infrastructure is in place now for start-up businesses with small staffs. The computer software, tracking systems, and other resources are out there and available. This allows you do what you need to do without an undue burden of time and expense.

#3. We’re moving into an economy that encourages creativity, that encourages us to be unique and to apply our strengths. There’s no better way to enable yourself to do the types of things you want to do than owning your own business. As discussed in a prior blog corporate America often beats the creativity out of us. If our corporate structures are washing away our creativity, keep yours alive and be truly economically valuable with your own business.
