Why do you start your own business?


It’s way harder to start and run your own business that it is to get a job. So why do almost 27million entrepreneurs currently run their own businesses in the US? A huge proportion of these business owners don’t earn as much as their colleagues with 9 to 5 jobs. There is more stress, more responsibility and in may ways more risk. So why do we do it?

Is it insanity? Is it cultural? Are the rewards that good?
