i don't think it would work if i try to look for real job. making your own business would be the best option for the times we are in. i think it is much harder now to be an employee compared to before. the working condition and the demand now is much different a decade ago. now every thing seems to be online and opportunities are more more onlnie. So I would look for opportunity with starting business with the use of internet also.

Starting a business is good. One advice is that you must know-how the business you are going to pu up. What I mean is you must know something on the business as in operation and management. Hoping the best for you. Have a nice day!

If you are really looking to start a serious business, that definitely constitutes a "real" job. Owning your own business can mean long hours and a lot of hard work. Of course, just how long of hours and how much hard work depends on the sort of business you are looking to start.

Opening your own business has a lot of rewards. But there are a lot of things to consider as well. Not everyone is suited to being their own boss. You must be self-motivated and self-disciplined to ensure everything gets done that needs to be. If you aren't one that can self-impose deadlines and then make yourself stick to them, being the boss isn't for you. Opening your own business isn't as easy as it sounds. We hear about all the companies that hit it big and the founder goes on to great wealth and fame. It sounds great. I'll just open a business and do that too! Except we don't hear about the far larger number of companies that fail. The huge number of people that start companies and lose everything because of it. The tremendous amount of hard work involved. If you're one of those that makes it, one of the even fewer that hit it big, and you're willing to work very hard and long hours, self-employment is wonderful.

My husband and I are also thinking of putting our own business.Online business can be profitable if you know the ins and outs. It is also important to do a survey or a feasibility study before venturing to business. Goodluck!

You are so right about the demad of being an employee nowadays. I worked for a company for 8 years before and I watched how it grows and become greedier on the coming years. When I started from that company, all target for our products are easy and we can do it really easy and proper. When they started hiring for productions managers and other staffs who had no experience on the process, it became every worker's burden. More chances that you will be more successful on your own business than being a regular employee. Goodluck to you.

Running your own business is much more satisfying than being employed. You have your own target to reach and not being pressured to reach dateline. The sweet reward is the profit is all yours.

Work is hard everywhere. Whether it be working in an office or doing ur own business. Nothing is easy. People think its easy to run a business . Its not. The initial years are so tough that many repent for having put his/her finger into something for which she/he is not temperamentally suited.But once established there is nothing more like business that makes life easy

Hi hotsummer, i am running my own business and i am less stress than i was as an employee. I even can earn more than being an employee and get to venture into other things too needless to say my computers and gadgets are more advance that what is provided at other working place.

I would agree in a way but the trouble with starting your own company is that you rely on your revenue to survive so if you have a bad few months you could be in a lot of trouble while working for someone else you have a set income. But if your company does well you earn a good chunk more. Do you have enough capital saved to ensure you are able to survive for the first few months while you get things started? Also do you have capital to get the company started? Best of Luck!

Hello hotsummer, Even I think its not easy to be an employee and its better to have our own business. I am also thinking the same way you thinkbut the only thing is I am afraid of taking risks.

It depends.. I thought the same thing a few years ago. So I opened my internet cafe. i make enough to pay the bills, but thats it. I guess it depends on what kind of business you open. Good luck to you.
