Being an entrepreneur is probably the best job I have ever had. I have done this twice - once in the early 90s when I ran my own home-based process management production company and now, as I approach my retirement years. I love working for me and I love working from home. Here is why:
If I want to work all day in my pajamas, I can. Even if I do get dressed, it is often in sweats or shorts and t-shirts. There is no reason to spend a lot of money on 'business attire' because nobody ever sees me! I work virtually therefore the most casual of clothing is all that is required.
I set my own hours, I work when I want to, not when someone else wants me to! I can get more done in one morning or afternoon working at home than I could ever do in a week at the office!
I am very happy with my boss -- me! I know what is expected of me and I know what needs to be done. Nobody hangs over my shoulder. It takes some planning, but I get to do the planning without scheduling someone else's meetings.
I did not apply for this job, I chose it, I created it, and I know how to do it. I make the rules, decide on the projects, and determine who I want to work with - not for!
Being an entrepreneur gives me the control over my own destiny that working for someone else does not. I can work really hard, or not so hard, depending on what my goals are.
It is challenging, exciting, fun, and a lot of hard work, but being an entrepreneur is the best job ever!
