22. Provide opportunities for family members. Many will say that mixing family and business partnerships is a bad idea (and I agree) — but this is less of an issue when talking about an employer/employee relationship.
23. Opportunity to give back. Owning a business gives you the opportunity to support local charity events, local schools and nonprofit organization. Being able to make a difference in your community is a great feeling.
24. Become healthier. A flexible schedule allows you to create a fitness routine and stick to it. Hit the gym early in the morning, at lunch or in the evening — whatever works for you.

41. Eliminate downsizing or layoff fears. Businesses make cuts and lay off employees daily. That can be extremely stressful. When you become an entrepreneur this fear doesn’t exist.
42. Bad days could always be worse. A bad day as an entrepreneur is better than a bad day working for someone else.

55. You develop an iron jaw. You will live through hard times too. Learning to take punches and still continuing makes you stronger.
56. You get to walk on the wild side. When you put your own livelihood and finances on the line because you believe in something 100 percent, it becomes an extreme rush.
57. You conduct your own performance review. Sales, company morale, growth and customer feedback can all be used to judge your performance not some person with a clipboard and a generic Q&A review test.
