Starting a small business is a perfect idea for most people. Not everybody however is going to be a successful small business owner. Some people perform better if they are employed by somebody else. I have met several people in my life who always dream about being their own boss. They enjoyed the idea of being in charge of the kind of work they want to do, the hours they work, and their own success. They cherished the idea of having their own fate in their hands. They wanted to face challenged that owning a small business offers. They would never go back to working for somebody else rather than themselves.
