If you are considering the pros and cons of work against running your own business this article is directed at you.
Having a job gives you the guarantee that you receive your salary at the end of each month and in most cases you can leave the job when you walk away each evening and unless you are in management or have a job that requires working at weekends, you should have your weekends free too.
However, if you own a business then it is not always certain there will be profits there to pay your salary or dividend and it is very hard to close the door each evening without taking the business home with you.
The rewards of having a business far out weigh those of a job and not least because you own an asset, whereas if you stop working at your job your income ceases. If you decide to stop working at your business your income will continue and you will have the asset to sell too.
