  1. Great list of reasons to be your own boss, I especially like the part of controlling your own destiny. I also feel sorry for those that get too attached to these benefits though and when things are going well stick around much longer than the brain says move on.

  2. Very inspiring Mr. Bizzo, very timely as I lost my job last month and have been exploring beign an entrepreneur. I’ll read some more of your blog for help – Season’s Greetings!

  3. That is perfect that u can make it seem like what you’re writing is what I am thinking, good stuff and good writing throughout.

  4. Quite inspiring Mr. Bizzo. I’m in the beginning stages of a new enterprise will be contacting you in January for coaching, thanks again

  5. Good points Gary. Think you could on forever with those, lol. Btw really liked your book on startups, you should market it as a guide to setting up a successful business. Don’t confuse it with setting up IPO type start ups worth zillions

  6. I think working for a jerk has to be high on the list to be your own boss, thank you Bizzo for the insights, hope to read more 🙂

  7. You got me thinking Mr. Bizzo I’m in a deadend job and hate it, do you consult with brainstorming business ideas? I need help

  8. My family members every time say that I am killing my time here at net, except I know I am getting familiarity everyday by reading these fastidious articles or reviews.
