Freedom in Work
As an entrepreneur you have the freedom to choose the work you do to to earn a living. What you do only a daily basis doesn’t have to be a list of monotonous tasks, it can be fulfilling and enjoyable. With this freedom comes responsibility of course. When you call the shots you also have tasks that you may not be good at or like but, the fulfillment of doing the work that you love will far out weigh those few tasks.

Why leave your income in the hands of another person? Good entrepreneurs are self-motivated. They possess the drive to decide what their income should be and make it happen at all cost.
