We need no convincing–living the life of an entrepeneur is incredibly exciting and gratifying.

Recent bloggers agree:

I started my own business because I was topped out in my area of expertise AND not pursuing my passion. I realized that the things I did as a volunteer in my spare time could be turned into a business. I teach dance and cheerleading to kids. Not the typical business- but its working and I LOVE IT!

I started my business because of the lack of control I had at the company I was with even though I was in an executive position. I realized it wasnt just the company I was with, but the only way I could truly control my future was to own and run my own business. That was 15 years ago and I have never regretted one minute of it.
