So You Want to Start a Business

Pt 181

So You Want to Start a Business @ NYTimes.com.

Going into business is risky, treacherous and demanding. But it is also invigorating, rewarding and beautiful, when it works. It is a lot like nature — with violent hurricanes and beautiful sunsets. I am not sure that you choose to be an entrepreneur; it chooses you.

  1. Love it!

  2. I couldn’t agree more: “I am not sure that you choose to be an entrepreneur; it chooses you.”

  3. Being self-employed is the best and the worst. I’ve been my own boss for over 20 years now, through a lot of big ups and big downs. One of the things I love the most is not having to punch a clock or work to someone else’s schedule. One of the hardest things is when you’re working on your own, there’s noone there to cover for you if you’re sick or want to take a vacation. The other thing that can get really annoying is (around here, at least) banks still seem to think that self-employed is a euphemism for unemployed, so you can be very successful and making plenty of money, and they still treat you like a second-class citizen.
