Is it time to start your own business?

February 21, 2010

What does your dream job look like? Is it sitting in traffic 2 hours a day so that you can sit in an office 8 hours a day? Or, would you rather set your own hours and work from any location that inspires you? A tough decision for sure…

Working for an established business organization as an employee can be nice.  The benefits are enticing. You get, a steady paycheck, instant team members, health insurance, shared tax rates… stability.

That’s all fine and dandy, but what if you were meant to start your own business. Meant to set your own hours and create your own customized career path? Will you know when it’s time to do this? Are you ready to risk failure? Are you ready to be your own boss?

If you’re bifurcated between conventional employment and entrepreneurship, check out this 2-minute Entrepreneur quiz created by Daniel Isenberg of the Harvard Business Review. Good luck!

    Wrestled with the same dilemma in 2009. Choose to turn down a 25% raise and instead start my own business. It’s been stressful, but totally worth it. No looking back, no regrets.

    Ha, Bifurcated. Nice use, almost as good as “link juice.”
