The existential pleasure of business ownership

Sure, there are plenty of challenges associated with owning a business,
but for me there’s simply no other way to work. Here’s what I love about owning my graphic design firm, Mix Creative:

  1. I meet fascinating, accomplished, and enthusiastic business owners all the time. They’re a source of inspiration for my own business.
  2. I get to help the above businesses reach their audiences and achieve their marketing objectives. Really—it’s fabulous to know that the work I do is a part of their success.
  3. I set my own hours, which gives me flexibility to be there for my family as needed, and to pursue creative inspiration.
  4. I get to see the outcomes of my own work on a daily basis.
  5. For the most part, I don’t have to attend a lot of meetings.
  6. I’m the boss. I answer to my clients, not a middle manager.
  7. Communication between my clients, vendors and I typically doesn’t involve the use of “business-isms.”
  8. I get to benefit from the work of talented, creative collaborators.
  9. In promoting my business, I’m constantly meeting and befriending many more successful, creative business owners.
  10. I can work from a laptop just about anywhere.
