Now more than ever, being a dad means being on the move! There aren’t always enough hours in the day to spend on work, family, commute, social life, and other obligations. This has led many working dads to reevaluate their career goals, to ensure they align with a more rewarding life.
For many dads, the answer has been an entrepreneurial one. They’re quickly finding that small business ownership provides a rewarding pathway to success, allowing them to prioritize their work and focus on their family.
Check out some of the key benefits of small business ownership for modern dads trying to juggle it all and still find success.
Making your schedule work for you
As a dad, you know efficient use of time is an important part of your success. Starting your own small business means you have the ability to set your hours, workdays, and overall schedule. This means having the flexibility to work your schedule around family events, doctor appointments, and your children’s extracurricular activities, among other important things.
With more opportunity to tailor your schedule, you’ll be able to ensure your work-week supports the needs of your business, yourself, and your family.
Enjoying quality time together
An added benefit of creating your own work schedule is that it allows you to prioritize spending quality time with family.
Dads who are small business owners can enjoy being present at important milestones, family vacations, and even last-minute events. Rather than shaping your schedule to another company’s goal, you can coordinate your own workday, travel and business obligations according to your family’s needs.
As a dad, you know family time is precious. Small business ownership is a great way to create time when you’re fully present with loved ones, so you can simply enjoy being together.
Having insight into earnings
Dads who own a small business have the benefit of consistent insight and control over their income. They have more power over their earnings, allowing them to meet the financial needs of their family better.
Owners also have control of their business’ goals. This helps them set benchmarks that translate to better income for both the business and themselves. In addition, having full transparency into your earning potential allows you to plan for the future, have peace of mind, and enjoy the rewards of success with the ones you love the most.
Building a lasting legacy
When kids grow up, they never forget what their parents did to support the family. Owning your own small business is a way to create a long-lasting and meaningful legacy for your children.
As a dad with a small business, not only will you have a business to pass down one day, you’ll also provide your kids with a strong example of what it looks like to be dedicated and goal-oriented. Whether you hope to share the family business with your children, or to pay for college tuition so they can go after their own dreams, your small business can be the catalyst for a lifetime of opportunities and family memories.
