I love this question, Braveheartok103! For me, having no choice but to work for someone else is not an option. You see, I got very ill (stroke) in 1991. My husband took off a year of work to help me get back to the best that he could hope for. My insurance dropped me, my husband's job was filled by another applicant, and we were flat broke. When I did get back to where I could work for someone else I didn't think it would be fair to ask a potential employer to hire me for I may have many sick days, I could possibly have another stroke (I did 2 years ago), I cannot always drive, and I demand a large salary. So what did I do? I started my own business. When I got bored of that, I started another one. Some of my businesses paid my mortgage for many months. None of these businesses were multi level of any kind. You see, I don't believe in starting something that makes the person who brought me into the company rich. I am a capable person so why not do it for myself. Thank you for the great question and thank you for letting me post!

If anyone thinks that they do not have a choice but to work for someone else, add me as a friend and send me a message and I will try to help you start your own business at home. Even if it is part time, you can still make money! I will NOT try to get you into an MLM or any business I currently run. I will help you customize your business to you.

given a choice, no sane person would like to work for someone else and make them rich. If one has the resources and the drive, they should definitely opt for business. I've just quit my job and looking out for a suitable business opportunity.

everyone will answer the same that he or she wants to start their own business but its not so easy and that is the reason why we all are working under our boss. but after some you would be the boss... so keep enjoying the life

I think it would be best if I started my own business and became my own boss :) I'd still worry about my boss them because I'd be worrying about myself :P However, starting my own business wouldn't help me with my training so I have to keep being an employee for a while. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I have done both, worked for someone and made them thousands, Now I work for myself and instead of making my boss thousands I make myself the thousands lol, no stress, no hassel, and no boss not to mention work when you want too and dont work when you dont want too. Dont get me wrong its hard work but its the most rewarding job you will ever do especially when your bank account very quickly fills up. Do it go self employed there really is no excuse not too, if you want to do it then DO IT and you will succeed if you make it succeed.
