I cringe when I hear so many people who are sick of their jobs say things like: "If I worked for myself I could work when I want how I want" Yeah, thats not how the World works. Regardless of whose signing a paycheck, You never have absolute control over what you will have to do and the part about working when you want? If you want to work spuratically and with far more intelligence than a typical employee, then yes this works, but if you mean you can blow off your own responsibilites because its your operation, your head is already in the wrong place. Narcissism wanting to own your own operation just so you can have your name on something. The thrill will fade and so will your desire. Just to make more money Think again, you will likely make less and in many cases negative dollars your first year. If the goal is making more money immediately, this is probably not the route to take.
