Control your own destiny
Have you ever dreamed of starting your own business, be your own boss and controlling your destiny? Or have you plans to realise the dream?
In this age of economic uncertainty and technological changes we have seen companies going under or downsizing making going out on your own and taking control of your destiny a tempting option. It seems that these days one just can't turn up for the same job everyday and expect the same company forever there.
I have a friend who has been struggling to operate a small business for many years. We were wondering why didn't he give up the long hours, hard work and low profit margins for a steady 9-to-5 and 5-days-a-week job? It took a long time for me to realize why. It's the freedom that he would never want to give up. Working for someone, one invariably has to suffer fools or ask to do the boring mindless jobs.

Umm, when you "work for yourself", you still would face favouritism and politics. Say u go and meet client, client will have favoursitism over some company than your company. U go and meet client, client will make you compete with other company and then politics come in.
When u work for yourself, there is a "live or die" ending, u would not have a pay cheque every month.
U work hard or u lucky then u get paid.
U not work hard but lucky then u still get pay.
U work hard but not lucky then u get no pay.
U not work hard and not lucky then god bless u.

Better to have your own business as you can go holiday anytime of the year!!!!! No need to apply for leave and come back with a whole pile of S**T waiting for you.
