Christmas is one of the holidays that creates huge business opportunities for smart investors and entrepreneurs who are ready to grab them while the season lasts. If you’re thinking of quitting your job and starting your own thing you have heard the million reasons not to go into business: It’s too risky, you might go into debt, you’ll probably lose sleep, your social life is kaput, and the list goes on. Starting a business can be a scary, intimidating notion.
But if you’re considering owning your own holiday lighting business, don’t forget all the benefits that go along with it:
Spread Joy. You’ll put smiles on so many people’s faces and spread holiday cheer. The twinkle, the ambiance, the warmth. For some reason these little glowing lamps give a tremendous amount of joy.
Flexibility. Work your own hours. Initially you’ll work longer hours for less pay. But if you do it right, you could start to master your schedule and the freedom that being an entrepreneur provides is awesome.
Make a lot in a short amount of time. Let’s be honest, this is probably the biggest reason people get into business for themselves. Christmas decorating offers individuals and businesses the ability to generate significant revenues during a time that is traditionally slow for many seasonal businesses. You can decide to run your business for a few months in the year, and then use the rest months to do whatever you want to do either personally or professionally.
Drive and motivation. Surely this is one of the main reasons why people start their own thing. Even during down times not making any sales, you’re still motivated to go to work, fix the bugs, pump up the sales, and make it happen. Because the business is yours and yours only. You’re not working for somebody else, so work hard and make it happen. Nothing feels as exciting as following one’s passion and dreams.
Call the shots. We’ve all had a terrible boss or two, but launching your own business allows you to be the kind of boss you’d like to work for. Nobody else is going to set the rules. You are.
Create jobs. You decide who to hire and bring into your company. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of knowing you’re responsible for the success of your employees. Your ideas provided them the opportunity to earn a living, provide for their family and fulfill their own dreams.
Help people. You control where your company profits go and if you choose, you can give allocate your financial gains to others. Use products and services to improve people’s lives. Have the power and flexibility to donate time or money to worthy causes.
Find pride and fulfillment. When you build something successful, it’s a great feeling. Finally start taking pride in the work you’re doing. If you’ve ever dreamed of being wildly successful, this is your chance.
Tax benefits. For entrepreneurs, they have the opportunity to take advantage of some nice tax perks. Many can write off expenses like travel, food, phone bills, portions of car payments, and the list goes on. Also, certain startups qualify for government incentives. Make sure to ask your accountant about what tax benefits you may be eligible for.
If you want to become an entrepreneur, there’s nothing really holding you back. Take the leap, and lead the company you’ve always wanted. We Hang Christmas Lights began when the founders needed supplemental income during the slow season of another business that they owned, it quickly turned their 2 slowest months of the year into the most profitable months of the year. In fact, within a few years they made more profit with their Holiday decorating business than they did during the rest of the year with their other business.
