Today is Thanksgiving and if you are running your own business then you probably have a lot to be thankful for. But do you always show it?
Are you grateful for the employees you have that are so dependable? Are you grateful for your clients and customers that have been faithful? Did you remember to tell them?
I found this great short list, on smallbiztrends.com, of things that we as entrepreneurs can be thankful for. Use this list to remind yourself.
1. You Get to Do What You Love
When you wake up every day, be thankful for the opportunity to help others that rely on you and your business.
2. You Have a Flexible Schedule
Be thankful for that! Not everyone has that benefit when they work for others.
3. You Work With Interesting People
Working in the equine industry not only are you fortunate to work with interesting horses, but you also get to create a relationship with their owner.
4. You Call the Shots
As the business owner you get to decide how you will expand and grow your business and how you can make improvements to keep your clients and customers coming back for more.
5. You Compete With Yourself
You should be self motivated to improve your own performance. Competing with yourself can be extremely satisfying.
6. You Can Make Change Happen
Be thankful you don’t have to wait for a committee to be formed to listen to and approve your ideas. You’re the boss Applesauce and you can make your ideas a reality!
7. There’s No Cap to Your Financial Possibility
You can always be learning of new ways you can expand your streams of income.
8. You Can Take a Day Off
Be thankful that when you need a day off you can take one!
9. You Surround Yourself With Smart People
You can hire the best people to make your business a success.
10. You Wouldn’t Change it For the World
Be thankful for all that you have and all that is to come!
