There are many employees out there to whom the promise of self-employment aka freelancing aka independent consulting (all of whom are ultimately small business owners) seems extremely appealing (particularly with a comfortable pair of pajamas). You might crave the feeling of accomplishment that is no longer possible at your current place of employment; you might want greater flexibility or feel that you are not being compensated enough for your skills or perseverance. Or you simply might want a change of pace.

Hi Ronika,

All good questions to ask, and not just of the perspective self-employed person but of any perspective entrepreneur. When you're on your own, you will need to wear many hats even if you eventually hire people to help you out. Realize the only one ultimately responsible for bringing in business is you. Thanks for sharing this post with the BizSugar community.

It was my pleasure, Heather. Not everyone is suited to entrepreneurship, so if you are planning to take the plunge, I think it is important to at least ask yourself these questions...
