Which is best job or business?
This a question that has been asked for a long time. People have always wondered what they should do to earn money and live a comfortable life. There are many options available – you can become a doctor, lawyer, accountant, architect, engineer – the list goes on and on.
However it is nearly impossible to say which career will be most rewarding because everyone’s values are different depending on things such as lifestyle they want to live, family they wish to support etc. With all this in mind we shall look at three careers: physician, lawyer and entrepreneur.
Firstly let us look at being a physician (or doctor). Becoming a doctor not only requires extensive education but also patience as training lasts between seven to twelve years.
The world of medicine is always changing, people are getting fatter and diseases are becoming stronger. Physicians often work long hours, this means that they may not be able to spend as much time with their family.
Also doctors have a high risk of contracting an illness through exposure to other sick patients which means less time for them to treat others. However physicians can expect an average salary of £71,660 per year (in the UK).
On the other hand working as a lawyer is similarly rewarding but does require slightly less training at around seven years compared to medical training which is between eleven and eighteen years.
Lawyers also tend to work fewer hours each day but this varies depending on what type of law you do and the size of the law firm. Lawyers also do not have the same high risk of contracting illness through exposure to illness like physicians do. Lawyers can expect an average starting salary of around £45,000 per year (in the UK).
Lastly becoming an entrepreneur is by far one of the riskiest but most rewarding careers available since entrepreneurs are concerned with growing their own business.
To become an entrepreneur you need to be passionate about your ideas and surround yourself with people who share that passion for knowledge and growth. It is important to realise that there will certainly be some failures along the way, however every failure is only a step closer to success so it should be treated accordingly!
Entrepreneurs can expect no fixed salary which means there is often little financial security leading up to the success of the business. However once the business is up and running it can be extremely rewarding financially giving entrepreneurs an average salary between £60,000-£100,000 per year (in the UK).
Whether you become a physician, lawyer or entrepreneur there are always going to be positive and negative factors that come along with each career path. The best thing to do when making this sort of decision is think about your values and what would make you happy in life.
You might be one of the people who enjoys the feeling of being surrounded by sick patients all day or maybe you want to earn lots of money quickly? Only you know which profession will suit your needs and only you can know what really makes you happy!
