There are many reasons that becoming an entrepreneur is attractive, rather than working for somebody else:

You may be able to spend more time with your family as you can choose your own hours and holidays etc.

You may gain a sense of achievement in creating your own business and seeing it mature;

You are more independent and do not have to answer to anyone else.

You can strive to achieve a certain income within a specified time scale

People become entrepreneurs for many reasons. Some want to leave the fast-paced corporate environment. Others want to be at home but still earn an income. Others want to pursue a personal dream. The reason you might become an entrepreneur may be completely different from these. Most people dream of running their own business. They would like to become entrepreneur
