Chapter 1: Is Small Business for You? > Identifying the Pros and Cons of Owning...

Identifying the Pros and Cons of Owning a Small Business

Even if you passed the test in the preceding section with flying colors and you think you qualify as a prospective small-business owner, the decision you’re about to make isn’t a simple, clear-cut one. After all, most of you can probably find as many compelling reasons why you shouldn’t own a business as you can find reasons why you should. In the following sections, we present many of these reasons.

The reasons we present here aren’t in any particular order. Everyone is different. The reasons why Bill Gates decided to start Microsoft may be vastly different from the reasons John Dough decided to buy his own pizza business. You won’t find right or wrong reasons to start or buy a business; you’ll only find right or wrong criteria that go into forming those reasons.
