    I started my own business because i had so much of spare time and i found that the business will never get saturated and has high potential income
    And the only thing needed is the hard work
    And moreover i would like to be my own boss rather going with someone else or under someone

    Even though it couldn't be called "business", I also started something like that. At first, I've started doing copy/pasting at various sites for a few cents. I was really happy to see that the time spend by PC is finally paying off even though electricity cost more than I earned :)
    But it was the feeling that I myself earned that money (like in the movies - limonade stall) that kept me going on and really improved me.

    I stared my business from an idea of writing so many checks. Took one year of re-search and then put it together, and built a website. Been in business since 2005 and still going strong. Just opened up and new website as a spin off. Just use an idea, or hobby you enjoy, and take it from there.

    I start my business just because i feel bored working for others
    That's is really bad when i wanna to implement something really benefit to company and get rejected. The reason just because they going to do some extra work, many of them are prefer to stay at those "comfortable zone" but not aim for better. Finally, i decide to start my own business

    I started my own business because I need not want to work and make someone else money, now, I make myself money and keep it for me, except for TAX and NI of course, but that's life.

    It's all about the ability to be in control of my life, pick my own hours and everything.

    Cheers!

    I was motivated by money. I wanted a lifestyle that I knew I couldn't attain thru my current career path.

    Many friends may start their own business while still at work or off the work. Some people call it SOHO. It may be tough at the very beginning. But you will be benefited a lot if you work hard on it : )

    I started my own business because I've always wanted the authority, flexibility and entrepreneurship skills that having your own business brings with it. I thought I had a great idea that would allow me to generate a good income for myself and it showed alot of growth potential as well so I jumped into the fray!

    people start their own biz because they have a great idea or they just making their personal beliefs turn into reality. How somethings should be run and proving that it can be successful. Needless to say, starting a own biz and gaining success eventually allows one to give back to their community too
