Before staring your own business you should know a few things about working for yourself. A lot of companies hype it up and always focus on the great things about working for yourself. There are many pros and I think they certainly out weigh the cons but you should honestly access yourself first before diving into the world of self employment.
I think one of the main problems and why many businesses fail, is simply a lack of motivation. Motivation and a willingness to actually work, are absolutely crucial to your success. If you are a person who thrives on instant gratification, and like instant results, then you may want to keep your day job.
