First, the answer might reveal that you don’t actually want to be self-employed… you just want a better job.
For example, you might realize you just really, really hate your boss. You don’t actually want all the challenges that come with entrepreneurship. You just want a better boss.
That’s an important discovery, because finding a better boss is WAY easier than starting a business.
Or as another example, you might realize you just want to earn more money, and you need to switch to a company or career with more upwards mobility. Again… way easier than starting a business.
But let’s say you are absolutely certain you want to be self-employed. It’s still worth defining your “why” for a different reason.
Your “why” is what is going to sustain you through the challenging road ahead. When you don’t feel motivated, when you hit a big road bump, when the funds are running dry, your “why” is what will give you the push to keep fighting and make it work.
