Considering Aspects of Small Businesses

From the Paper:

"The decision to become self-employed is one that often involves a number of reasons, many of which concern the notion of autonomy, freedom, and self-direction. In addition, the idea of being self-employed is something that the majority of people consider at least once during their lifetime. Current statistics, for example, suggest that more than 50 percent of salary workers have considered becoming self-employed. Nevertheless, many of those deciding against becoming self-employed base their decision on very valid reasons, such as financial security, health benefits, and so forth."
