if you work for someone else, yuo oly worry about your job 9-5. if you work for yourself you will worry about the business 24/7/365 !

you are very right with this one you do worry about your own business 24/7 where as someone else you just work for them and no worries when you go home, i know alot of people don't mind the worry of their own business but some do and of course unless your business is making a decent amount of money then your going to worry constantly about it where as if it is making some good money you can sleep well and easy at night and not worry where the next pennies are coming from to pay for the shopping or the next bill.

I work for someone and I work for myself. I am working on becoming independant and not having to work at the hellhole which is my main job. I like working with just me and my hubby. I work with the public and hate it, I can't believe how rude the general population can be.

i can relate to that, my first real job was working for my parents in their bar in spain but i soon ended up running and managing it at 17 and of course thats all about working with public and there are some really nice people who you meet and i miss that aspect of it but then there ca be some real our crouts as well which makes you wonder why you bother, i enjoyed working for myself for a while but i wasn't all that keen on all the hassle that comes with running your own business, tax this, vat that but then i had some problems with my main supply of my main product and from that i ended up having to fold it all. I hope it all works out for you and your hubby though :-)

well, up until 2003 I worked for Corporate America. I moved to be with my then boyfriend. I then decided to dip into the various online opportunities floating around. I have found what works for me is having good domain names and sites that have good content on them. By no means am I rich from this, but it is some pocket money. On Christmas Day of 2006, we married. I don't have to work out of home, but if I want to, I can. I am always openminded to new online opportunities, but if "red flags" appear, then I look the other way.

I am a writer, so I work from whereever there is a computer. I have my laptop set up here in my condo in Arizona right now, but I can travel with it. I like to work in the cafe across the street, when I need to get out, and in a few months I'll be going back to Canada, so I'll be working from there. As long as I have my laptop, I'm good.

Wow thats really cool, i used to want to be a writer when i was in school and i used to write kids stories but i never took it any further and stopped when i left school. Your kind of job is one of the best i think because you can work where ever and when ever you want to which i find wonderful.
