Be Your Own Boss: Honouring A Different Kind of Freedom This Independence Day Weekend
12 Jun 2020INSPIRATIONBY Tracy

Maligayang Araw ng Kalayaan, Philippines! This archipelago has come a long way since triumphantly attaining independence from Spain on June 12, 1898 and has since then developed into the nation that it is today. Despite struggling for centuries, Filipinos have faithfully committed themselves to maintain freedom and have embraced any and all opportunities to grow both as a nation and as individuals.


Economically, the country’s growth has had its ups and downs with the government juggling limited resources while attempting to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding population. Fortunately, in more recent times, local and international businesses have provided Filipinos with the opportunity to lift themselves up in order to achieve financial freedom. You see, many of these businesses started out small. Entrepreneurs with big dreams, who took the risk and just went for it. And now, entrepreneurs are seen as the ones responsible for driving the world’s progress forward.


The benefits of starting a business seem to have outweighed the fear of no guaranteed success or income. Why? Because of one word, FREEDOM. There is a growing number of individuals who realize that freedom tremendously affects how we think and live, and while there is absolutely nothing wrong with being employed, there are some who see having a business as a means to take control of their lives. But what kind of freedom are we talking about? What kinds of freedom can we actually enjoy if we go off on our own?

1. Freedom of Time

Give yourself the choice to spend your life working on something you are passionate about and at the same time the choice to not work at all. This freedom means you can have a full life and pursue other interests, too.

2. Freedom of Relationship

Choose to be surrounded by people who inspire you to be more and do more. Individuals who see your vision and want to help you reach your goal.

3. Freedom of Money.

Choose not to limit your earning capacity. If what you’re passionate about can generate income, allow yourself to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

4. Freedom of Purpose.

Choose to realize your “why” and amplify your fundamental values by sharing them with others while providing opportunities for your community to earn and become successful in their own rights.

Entrepreneurial freedom is so much more than not working in an office. It is, more than anything, taking control of your own circumstances and allowing yourself to be successful in your own right at your own pace. Another great thing about Freedom of Relationship is that you will never run out of choices when looking for the right partner to bounce off your ideas with.
