Often people do not feel fully compensated for the work they do while working for someone else. Starting a business of your own means you can reap the benefits of all your hard work.

You most probably will be working longer hours throughout the first few months of running your business but as the business grows, you get to delegate tasks to other people thereby having more flexible time to spend with your family and doing other activities you enjoy. For example, you can decide not to go to work on Fridays, a privilege that cannot be enjoyed when on a 9-5 Job.
