No doubt, there are bad reasons to start a business and really bad ones. But this one is the worst of them all.

No doubt, there are bad reasons to start a business and really bad ones. But this one is the worst of them all.

It’s called I hate my job.

Oh no, man! If you hate your current job – change it. Find some other one, better one. Start looking for another job right now. Not on Monday, not tomorrow. Right now. And don’t even think about starting a business, just because you hate your job.

If you want to achieve success in business – you need to believe in it. You need to believe in yourself, in your vision, your idea, your skills. You need to be motivated to achieve success. You need to be brave and patient.

I’ve seen too many people started building their companies just because they didn’t want to work for this guy any more. They all failed. Not because they were stupid, but because their only motivation was to leave the job they simply hated. They were not passionate about their product, company, brand, idea or even being an entrepreneur. They were not passionate at all.

You can hate your job. You can have the worst boss ever. It’s a huge motivation. Motivation to change. But in this case – simply change your job. Find another one. Another job, another boss. If you want to start a business – prepare yourself, make a plan, and look for an idea that will be worth your sacrifices. Set clear goals. Goals that will become your passion. Goals that will motivate you.

And then start to build your company. Because you can build whatever company you want, you can achieve success and become a successful entrepreneur. You can even learn (and I bet you will!) from your own mistakes while building a business. But learn as much as you can, while you have guaranteed income to pay your bills. And start a business when you’re ready. Start a business motivated by good factors – by your product, brand and idea.
