Top 5 reasons to be your own boss

Hey there! As two busy mums who decided to start our own business on the side while also keeping down day jobs and raising little kids (phew!), we know firsthand how hard it can be to juggle work and family commitments. While it has definitely been gruelling, stressful, and challenging, working for yourself gives you an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and achievement completely different to working for someone else. Since taking that first step and starting Mum’s Village Coast to Coast we've never looked back!

Following the worldwide covid pandemic, people have been leaving corporate life in droves and taking the plunge into entrepreneurship. We wanted to share with you our top five reasons to be your own boss. Whether you’re considering starting your own business or looking for a new entrepreneurial opportunity, we think you’ll find these five reasons compelling. We’re passionate about our work, and we’re committed to creating a supportive and flexible work environment where our staff can thrive. So, if you’re ready to take the leap into being your own boss, or if you’re looking for a new challenge, keep reading to discover why being your own boss could be the best decision you ever make.

1. Flexibility and work-life balance

This is a huge one. Working for yourself gives you the freedom to set your own schedule and work when it suits you. This means that you can work around other commitments, such as family or personal interests. It also means that you have more control over your work-life balance, which can help you avoid burnout and maintain your wellbeing. No matter how flexible your workplace, nothing compares to being able to decide 100% for yourself exactly how much, and when, you’re going to show up to work!

2. Independence and financial control

Being your own boss means that you have complete control over your work and career. You can choose the projects you work on, the clients you work with, and the direction of your business. This can be empowering and satisfying, especially if you’re the type of person who likes to be in charge. Not only that, but as your own boss you also have full control over your own income. You can set your prices, take on more clients, and grow your business as much as you want, giving you the potential to earn more money than you would working for someone else, and invest in your own future. No more waiting for annual salary reviews!

3. Creative freedom

As a business owner, you have the freedom to be creative and innovative. You can develop new products or services, find new ways to market your business, and solve problems in new ways. This can be incredibly satisfying if you enjoy being creative and coming up with new ideas, plus you can mould your business to be a true reflection of your personal beliefs, values and style. A true and honest reflection of who you are.

4. Sense of accomplishment

Practical and financial benefits aside, building a successful business can be incredibly satisfying. You have the freedom to pursue your passions and create a business that reflects your values and interests, and as your business grows, you’ll have a sense of pride in your accomplishments and the impact you’re making. This can be a great motivator to keep pushing yourself and growing your business, and can really help you stay committed even when times get tough. You never know, you might even discover that you actually ENJOY working!

5. Helping others

As a business owner, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world. You can create products or services that solve real problems for people, or you can use your business to support causes that are important to you and give back to others in the community. This can be incredibly rewarding and can give you a greater sense of purpose beyond just making money.

Overall, being your own boss can be a highly rewarding experience, both personally and professionally. As a couple of mums who started our own business to help out other busy mums, we know that being your own boss can be a highly rewarding experience. It’s not just about the financial benefits – although those are certainly important – it’s about the sense of accomplishment, creative freedom, and personal growth that come with taking a leap of faith and deciding that you want to be the one in charge of your life. 



At our business, we’re committed to creating a supportive and flexible work environment where our staff can thrive. We believe that everyone has the potential to be their own boss, whether that means starting your own business or taking on a leadership role within an existing organisation. 


At Mum’s Village Coast to Coast we’re always on the lookout for potential team members looking to take on a new challenge. If you’re ready to take the leap into entrepreneurship or looking for a new challenge, we encourage you to get in touch with us and explore the possibilities. Being your own boss may be one of the most rewarding decisions you ever make. And who knows? You may just find that it’s the key to unlocking your full potential and achieving your wildest dreams.
