The beauty of owning your own business is that, after all the hard work, the rewards are yours. K over at ksblog reflected on this after a conversation with an employed friend. She quotes The Trump Blog,
More than half of the top income earners in the United States work more than 70 hours a week.
And K goes on to say,
If I´m going to sacrifice, I´m going to sacrifice building businesses I want to build.
As one of the subjects of my book put it when she described what she loves about owning her own business,
There´s the energy you put into it, and you see it coming back directly to you. It´s just you, by yourself, in the moment!
