My dad own his own business. It's definitely a tougher job to be the boss, than to be an employee. Well it actually depends on the type of job, but in my dad's, he needs to do alot of paperwork, he needs to look for the employes, check inventory and do a lot of stuff. I believe this, because you running your own business means that you will carry with a lot more responsabilities, the people that work with you, and all the money invested is yours. So you need to take extra care of everything and work 24/7. Although, you make way more money =), it's really something that depends on your behaviour and your level of responsability, if you think you can keep up with everything and really keep an eye on the employess checking inventories and that stuff, then your good to go. Else I'd recommend you looking for a job and just work the set hours xD, here in my country its 8 hours.

I am not sure. I have always worked in customer service in one form or another. I think it might be nice to own my own answering service. That way I can put my past history to good use.

If i have lots of money i would definitely venture into the food business. I would own a franchise of jollibee (a big fast food chain in the philippines). I would also want to own a boutique because i love fashion. Since i dont have the money yet, i have settled to owning an online store in multiply.com and i also sell in ebay. I still get to have my own business without having to pay for anything.

When I was in Banking, I saw many people start their own business and if you want to make it a success you have to work many, many hours to get it going. I certianly wish you luck wwhen you get your dream.

I had dreams several years ago of owning a small craft store. It never did happen since I didn't have the backing necessary to own and operate a store. Decided to stuff that decision and remain an employee of a sporting facility. I don't have the knowledge or confidence to be a business owner. My husband owns a firm and I see all the responsibility required to maintain a thriving business. It's not easy.

I would love to own my own magic shop and cafe. There are no big magic shops here in the Philippines and hopefully soon I could have my own big one combined with a cafe so that I could also perform my magic to the cafe's customers. I really just love magic and to eat as well.
