What is the difference between a Business and a Job?

A Job is a 8-5 work thing that you do... if you don't work, you don't get paid..A true business is an organic phenomenon..its a business structure which may need your guidance to grow and succeed but could actually profit and grow even for more than 3 months that you are away.... If your business, could not survive without you or would deteriorate without your presence in a few days, you don't actually have a business, ...you have a Job! What do you think about this? What is your perception of a business or Job?

I agree with you. When your 'business' could not operate without you, what you have is a job not a real business. You are an employee of your own business. In other words 'self-employed'.

business is something you own and you work and your working for certain goal. job is work that someone pay for you. in job you can work even you don't like it or love but business is working with passion with love to achieve your goal.

You are right. When you have a business, you still have jobs to do to maintain that business.

A business is something that you can call your own. it is something that you do your best to profit from. Some businesses are inherited and become great family businesses. other businesses are built from your own dreams and it is up to you to see them through. A job is just somewhere you go to perform your duties to earn a decent living and get paid for it.

I never thought about it that way. I guess I think of a business as something where you have an influence about what happens to the company. If it's just a job, you do what your told and get paid for it. If your in a business, you make decisions and they affect the path of the business.
