Starting Your Own IT Business
When you work for yourself, you are in control of your own destiny. If things go well with your business, you do well. If you don't get customers, you do poorly. Your risks are higher, but your rewards are also higher. When you work for someone else, you get a smaller share of the rewards, but you also get a smaller share of the risk. If there are no customers this month, you still get paid. When you work for yourself, you have to take care of all the aspects of the business – sales, marketing, customer service, business development, finance, taxes and the actual technical work (even if you hire it out, you still are responsible for it in the end.) When you work for someone else, you can focus on the technical work. If you don't like the non-technical work, it's likely that you will be unhappy having to do it. When you work for someone else, they control your schedule. When you work for yourself, you (and your customers) control your schedule. Working for yourself can be an excellent option if you have external time constraints like school or family.
