Positive aspects of owning a business include having a flexible schedule and an opportunity to pursue personal interests. A business owner is his own boss and makes independent decisions about the business.
Owning a business allows more flexibility in setting the working hours and choosing where to work from. This allows for a life-work balance. A business owner has direct control of his potential earnings because all business activities he undertakes translate directly to the growth of his business, and more earnings for him.
Owning a business provides the business owner an opportunity to follow his passion; he enjoys his work and is better able to handle difficult times in the business. He gets personal contentment and an opportunity to bring expertise into the business, therefore offering high-quality products and services to his customers.
A business owner is able to get things done without going through formalities usually involved in other types of business ownerships. He is able to make decisions and react quickly to grab opportunities as they arise. He can either be actively involved in running the business, or he can hire other people to work for him. Unlike in employment, a business owner has autonomy in deciding who to work with; he is therefore able to get people whom he has synergy with.
