I always wanted to work for myself. I think lots of people would really enjoy being their own boss.
There are pros and cons of course just like working for someone else. The biggest advantage of self employment is that you are your own boss.
You call the shots. You can work when you want. You are in control. Everything is on your terms whether you decide to hire others as help or just do everything yourself.
But unfortunately to be self employed you better know what the $%#^ you are doing. There will always be work in business and doing most of it on your own is very tough.
When you work for yourself you are starting your own business. It can be tough and no matter what the business is you will need to be able to deal with the competition.
I feel I really could enjoy doing my own thing because I enjoy competition and all of that stuff. The way I see it there will always have to be work done but when you run your own business you decide how hard you want to work and make things happen.
My dad ran a restaurant when I was a little kid and he would hire the staff, set the schedules, make sure everything is in line, and count the money. He was also the main cook there.
But he would be working like all the friggin time which was fine because he could handle it. I used to work for him as a dishwasher when I was like 12 and would help him count the money at home. It is not like he did not have time for me.
I don't know maybe that whole experience taught me to work hard like my dad was. But then a few years later after he owned it for over 10 years he finally had to sell it mainly because my parents divorced.
But hey man it happens. Whatever. Anyway the point of this blog post is that there is no rule or law saying you cannot go into business for yourself. I assume take the risk while you are young in your 20s. It might not be such a risk if you do the homework and are passionate about your business.
There is always tons of work but I assume you will always have to do the work whether you have a boss ordering you around to do it or you are self motivated enough to do it yourself.
The idea of going out in whatever industry and starting your own business adventure is really interesting to me. Figuring out how to turn profits and whatnot. Its almost like a game only a serious game.
