According to the Enterprise Council on Small Business (BtoB, 11/16/09, p. 21), entrepreneurs become self-employed for one of 3 reasons:
>> 74% want to be able to earn their living through a specific skill or activity they are good at or enjoy; e.g., photography, woodworking, writing, web site design, public speaking.
>> 24% are corporate refugees who became self-employed to escape life in a big organization.
>> 2% are motivated by growth, achievement, and the thrill of running and building a business.
Which of the above is YOUR motivation?
Or are you self-employed for a reason not on this list?
