Jobs VS Business

25 May 2022

Every year graduates come across the question which to choose either jobs or business. Some consider business as risk and job as wholesome requirements of their lives, others consider business to be better. In this blog, I have tried to give a detailed overview of advantages of jobs and business.


Doing a job helps you in generating this valuable necessity of life on regular monthly intervals via a paycheck or salary credited in your bank account. The most essential and vital part of doing a job is that you are constantly learning and updating your skills which in the future will act as a stepping stone towards achieving your personal and professional goals. If you work for an organization, they provide you with all the resources & tools that help you to perform in your job that leads to maximum output and profits. Usually, the organization will spend a certain amount of money and resources on teaching you how to use those tools. In simple words, you are learning new things at someone else’s cost. The best part of being employed is that you get a chance to explore new places as you visit them for business, conferences, training and official conclaves where the expenses are borne by the organization you work with plus you get a chance to earn Dearness Allowance (DA) or work-travel related incentives. When you go to an office, you tend to interact, communicate and lead people. Doing so, you expand your horizons and improve your marketing, communication presentation and the most important, your leadership skills. Last but not least, the best part of being in a job is that you have fixed working hours and weekly offs which helps you to do other things like to spend time with your family, improve your skills and also it gives you time to decide strategies on various things like how you can do salary and post increments in your organization.


Many entrepreneurs consider themselves "Type-A" personalities, folks that like to take control and make decisions. In other words, owning a business saves them from having to work for anyone else. "One reason to own a small business is the ability to direct the culture of your company." One of the most oft-cited benefits of owning your own business is the flexibility that comes with it, whether that be working from wherever you want, setting your own hours, wearing a nightgown or even sitting next to your pet while you work. When you work for someone else, you rarely get to choose whom you work with. If you don't like your co-workers you'd better start sending our resumes. That's not the case when you own your own business, since you get to make the decisions about who to hire (and fire). There's no question that owning your own business is a risky proposition. But, with risk comes reward. Said another way, the better you are at managing risk, the more rewards you can reap. You also learn to create exit strategies for bad situations and how to maximize the good ones. The most fun is to work on a project for several years with your team, overcoming all of the obstacles, and then millions of people enjoy it around the world. There are few things that get entrepreneurs as excited as when they get to interact with their customers. Rather than hiding behind a series of automated greetings, small business owners thrive on dealing one-on-one with their best clients – or making the decision to get rid of those customers they don't like. "You don't have to deal with customers who are jerks - you can even fire them." One of the biggest differences in owning your own company as opposed to working for someone else is the sense of pride you establish in building something of your own. Not only are there benefits from such self-actualization – you also get to brag about what you do.

Now let us engage in the comments section and give views upon the topic and tell which one is better. Lets make the comment section a full place of discussion of different ideas.

I think a combination of both is good - Have a side hustle while working in a job (at least when you're just entering the workforce). Jobs teach you a variety of different skills which will transfer into your side hustle. Moreover, you also have more potential to "sample" different occupations by working different jobs with less personal risk. Eventually I'd leave jobs behind though.
interestingly there is an element of stability in a Job (sometimes) that provide an element of certainty for the work you do. I do like the idea of passive income where you do not have to be working day to day for a return.
