10 Reasons Why You Should Take a Chance in Your Jeunesse Business
Spring is officially here. Flowers are taking notice and rising to meet the sun; days are a bit longer, and life seems to hold a little more promise and opportunity. It is a time of new beginnings, renewal and rebirth.
Spring serves as the perfect time to re-group, re-prioritize and re-invent as we think about what we can do to turn our winter daydreams into realities. April 23 offers the opportunity to get started as we celebrate National Take a Chance Day. On this day, we encourage you to spend some time visualizing your dreams and goals, and ultimately, creating an action plan to make them happen. Here are 10 reasons why we think now is the perfect time to take a chance in your Jeunesse business.
- Earn extra cash
Whether it’s to help make ends meet, to save for a vacation or a new home, or to ramp up the retirement stash, a little extra cash can go a long way. A Jeunesse business is a great way to earn a little extra for that something or someone special.
- Gain new experiences
Experiences are what make life worth living. It’s so easy to get stuck in a routine, but investing in a Jeunesse business is a great way to give yourself the push you need to try new things. “A mind that is stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions.” —Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
- Learn something new
Henry Ford said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Learning something new is a great way to stay energized in life!
- Meet new people
There are about 322 million people in the United States alone, each with their own unique story. Now think of how many people you know. It’s likely a fraction of a percentage, right? Just think of all the amazing things you could learn by getting to know a few new people.
- Stave off boredom
Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, working 9–5, or going to school, settling into a routine can make your mind tune out of the day-to-day experience, which has the effect of speeding up your perception of time. Engaging in a Jeunesse business can help slow time down by keeping your mind sharp and engaged.
As the old adage goes, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. You never know what could happen tomorrow, and if something happens to the income stream you count on, what will you do? A Jeunesse business is the perfect safety net for the unknown.
- Master time management
The idea of adding one more “to do” item to your schedule may sound daunting. But committing to a Jeunesse business encourages you to become a master of time management, which could spill over into other aspects of your life.
- Take a risk
When was the last time you tried something that scared you? Taking risks can be exhilarating and inspire you to push your boundaries. As Paulo Coelho says, “You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.”
- Discover your passion
Trying new things and meeting new people is a great way to get to know yourself better. By investing in yourself and a Jeunesse business, you are compelled to leave your comfort zone, which is often the only way we discover what we’re truly passionate about.
- Gain freedom
The beauty of a Jeunesse business is that if you truly commit to it and push yourself to do your best, it could replace your daily 9–5 grind. And doing something you enjoy that supports you financially is the best kind of freedom. Being your own boss sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
