The Benefits of Starting a Side Business

by Alex Knapp on 8 August 2009

Neal Frankie has a good post on the virtues of starting a side business:
Why do I love being self-employed?
Because it allows me to express myself freely. At the end of the day, I believe this is the real pay-off for most small business owners who love what they do.

I left the corporate world in 1993 because I was tired of my boss making arbitrary decisions about what was good for my clients. I was tired of my life being subjected to the whims of some corporate executive who didn’t even know my name. As an employee, I couldn’t do what I really felt was right either for my clients or for myself — so I left.
