3 Reasons to Start a Company

3 Reasons to Start a Company

I came across this article about the "9 Great Reasons to Start a Company". You can find all 9 from the article, but first, check out my top 3 below.

Reason Numero Uno: To build a better company!

We are living in a weird time where the younger generation's leaders mash together with the older generation. Let's just say that they don't always see eye-to-eye on things. So if you don't happen to agree with the processes and rules that have been set for many existing companies, why don't you try to make your own? I think this world needs young doers as well as thinkers who step up and give an example to the rest. 

Reason Numero Dos: To be part of a great team.

Entrepreneurs do what they love! At least, they should! What could be more rewarding? For me, more rewarding would be doing exactly what I love but with people I respect and whose company I truly enjoy! Also, a team consisting of all entrepreneurial thinkers is very different from a team that is put together to perform a task. I would choose a team of entrepreneurs any day!

Reason Numero Tres: You are young and can afford to take the risk!

When we get older, we tend to accumulate certain things. We start developing our own roots; we buy cars and houses, we might get married and start a family. With all of these accumulations, comes responsibility. That said, it's hard to call yourself responsible if you start a company with capital that was supposed to be your retirement fund or your kids' college tuition; which is exactly the point of the header. When you are young, you have different sets of responsibilities which often require little to no obligatory payments. While you're young, make sure to discover and realize your dreams. You have plenty of time to recover later. And if you get things right, well, then you really don't have to worry about any of it.


I chose to follow my dreams! How about you? From the original article, tell us which ones are your favorites! Share your story or comments below!!

Being an Entrepreneur - Radio interview with Joonas Villanen

Being an Entrepreneur - Radio interview with Joonas Villanen












After doing a few interviews with entrepreneurs around Finland, I was asked about my own experiences. Tables were turned. The interview was organized by a local radio station called Radio Uusjussi.

So how did it go?

Well, to begin.... I can now understand how the interviewee feels in the hot seat! Nerves were on edge and my mind and tongue didn't always work together, but all in all... I think it was pretty successful! What do you think?

What did they ask?

First question: Why should people change from a traditional media to new, more digital, media like video production.

Shortly - because it's trendy. It's a better, more effective channel to portray your message. Video is more memorable, personal, and emotional. And, probably the biggest reason of all and with the advancements in technology, it is available.

So that I don't spoil the goods too much, I'll just add that brands and the importance of branding was talked about as well as what it takes to make your business stand out from the rest and how to get started.

Please, share you own experiences below. We would also love to hear what you have to say about the interview's topics. Was there anything worth taking away?

Happy watching!
