There is a wonderful feeling of being your own boss and setting the course for the direction of your business.
Apparently, having that autonomy directly correlates to our own happiness.
A quote from the book The Illusions of Entrepreneurship:
These studies have found that people are more satisfied with their jobs when they are working for themselves than when they are working for others. In fact, the studies show that to be as satisfied when he is working for others as he is when he is working for himself, the average person needs to earn two-and-a-half times as much money!
