For me, it was a very conscious choice to make a living doing what I love. For example,i love teaching ,talking and inspiring people to success, i then built my career around my passion and today i love talking and i can never get tired talking,that's what made me a public speaker.

G. No Delay In Getting Things Done More Faster. Entrepreneurs are the type of people who hate delay in any form.

H. You Have Unlimited Access To Your Customers. There are few things that get entrepreneurs as excited as when they get to interact with their customers at any time they want, small business owners thrive on dealing one-on-one with their clients or making the decision to get those customers that don't like their product/services and they can as well fire the ones they don't like by breaking the rule that "Customers are always right"

I. You Can Give Back to Your Community.

It gives you great pride in knowing that you're solving a problem others have and creating opportunities for people to have jobs that they love. Another important thing about giving back to the society is that it makes you more popular,it builds trust and confidence in your clients on your product/services.

J. You Feel The Joy and Pride in Building Your Own Thing.

There is joy in self-actualization, you also get to brag about what you do. One good thing about owning a small business is that people are interested in you and your story.
