Be Your Own Boss
Just about every person I encounter wants to start his or her own business. Who wants to work for someone else when you can be your own boss? The idea of making your own hours, coming and going as you please, sleeping in, or taking vacations whenever you want is appetizing. There is, however, a lot more that goes into starting and running a successful small business.
In his article, "Are You Ready to Start a Business" Jeremy Reis writes about what it takes to really run your own business. He asks a series of questions to help readers really assess if being their own boss is realistic.
In the article he says that business owners need to make decisions quickly, be able to deal with difficult personalities, and have the physical and emotional stamina to run the business.
