The Top 5 Reasons I Love Being an Entrepreneur

Posted on September 11, 2017

I’m very lucky to be an entrepreneur. People always ask me if I ever sit back and just feel good about what I’ve accomplished; the answer is probably – but not as often as I should. However, every once in a while, I’ll be driving around some random college town in the middle of nowhere on a Tuesday, while all of my friends are at their 9-5 jobs and I think to myself, WOW, this is really special. A previous post that I wrote focused on a few of the more difficult aspects of entrepreneurship, and they are definitely overshadowed by the rewarding ones!

  1. I wake up every morning (for the past 5 years) and put all of my creative thoughts and energy into my passion project (my baby, if you will).
  2. My little idea not only supports me, but also my team of employees, freelancers, and agents – that’s pretty cool!
  3. In my business (Intern Queen) we help connect young people with the internships of their dreams. I get to watch them be successful, feel successful, and go on to land their dream jobs.
  4. I get to motivate people to go after their dreams. That’s my job, and that’s pretty cool!
  5. Because of entrepreneurship, I’m flexible. I can live where I want, see my friends and family when I want, and travel the world!
