    Would you rather work for someone else, invest money to make more, or work for yourself?

    I don't like the idea of others profiting from my work, I will always work for myself or find other ways to make money.

      you are right. I don't either but we are all programmed to work for someone else from birth. Ridiculous how entrepreneurship isn't taught in all levels of school.

      The problem is that entrepreneurship is not a skill that can be taught. You either have it or you don't. You can fallow voice lessons as long as you want if the voice is missing, it will not help you sing...

    I don't really care if others make money from my work, they will do, even if I work for myself. If I sell my services to somebody, that person is profiting from my work.

    However, working for yourself gives you the satisfaction that if you screw something up, it is your responsibility, so you have to act in such a way to make sure you don't screw up!!!

      Yes, it also gives you the freedom to do what you want. I still work for myself and the man until I am able to replace the mans income at which point I will finally be free from the rat race! Thanks.

    I prefer  working for myself because I am more in control of my income and what I do.  It is great to wake up every morning and think, I can do what I want, and in a sense it makes you work harder.
