Why do entrepreneurs risk it all to become become business owners?

They risk it all for one word: FREEDOM!!! Today I am reminded of why there is nothing better than being a business owner rather than working for "the man". One of my clients was laid off from her day job position without any notice, WHILE she was on vacation. There was no regard for her diligent efforts, long hours, and servitude. Just a hurried voicemail with a request for an exit interview. When you have your own business, you have freedom. You are in charge of your own destiny. You make your own hours and you are accountable to no one but yourself. You don't ever have to worry that you'll be laid off. On the flip side of course, your income is dependent on your own efforts. Is it worth the risk??? YOU BET!
