Thanks for writing this article. I think it is so true. I have owned my own business for about 2 yrs now and love it, but it is hard work. I do think there are so many people out there that think owing their own business is all fun and games and don't really understand what it takes. While I am the business owner, my husband is the employee and we both like what we do.

You are so right about owning a business being a lot of work. Bosses suck, and when that boss is you, they really suck.

Definitely true, Anita. It's also true that sometimes it's not just one or the other. I think even most of us who have been involved with entrepreneurship have at one time or another worked for someone else as well. It's true that some prefer working for themselves and some for someone else. (It also may be true that some have the temperament for one or the other.) But, as you said, it's important to know yourself and also what's important to you right now. This may eventually change but, as you said, knowing who you are and where you are in your life is the critical thing.

Shawn, I really like your point that how you feel about things changes. Some people think that this means that what they were previously doing was wrong. But, it might have been right for that time.

I have just one thing to say about the title of this article: "you can say that again."

Some people will be happier working as an employee -- but to each his own. There's a lot to be said for being an employee, such as the opportunity to have large and exciting responsibilities if you work for a large multinational corporation.

The point is, you must know yourself ... know what motivates you and fulfills you. It won't be the same for everyone.

Anita, you are right on. It is knowing about yourself. What will make YOU happy?
