Sometimes these kind of risks are worth the taking. I’ve owned my own business for the last 6 years and it was the best decision I made for myself and my family. Being my own boss I make my own hours and I am not tied down to someone else’s agenda except my own. This enables me to have a much more balanced family life at home which I was missing out on a lot. That being said, having the option to sit down to dinner with my wife and kids or picking my kids up from school whenever I wanted was a huge bonus OR work later whenever I see fit. Although a new series of stress arises such as managing other people, meeting deadlines, dealing with clients etc....all things I’ve had to adjust to dealing with while branching out on my own. Goodluck!
