As they say, one of the perks of owning a business is getting a better hold of your time. You can sleep, eat and wake up anytime you want. You can go on vacation without worrying about whether your boss will approve your vacation leave or not. You won’t face the hassle of trying to be friends with your meanest co-worker. You won’t need to obey rules and regulations. After all, you only live once, right?
To each his own but I don’t think that I’m gonna do all of the things that I mentioned above. I think owning a business, specially during the start-up, requires more time and sacrifice. Owning a business means being more responsible and determined to produce profit and gain more customers. Running a business means taking into consideration the customers’ needs. Therefore, you can’t just open and close your business unless you are ready for non-repeating customers.
I therefore conclude that whether I am working or owning a business, my dedication will just be the same (or even greater because that’s my investment). A dedicated businessman delays pleasure over hard work.
