Q: What is the real reason people go into business for themselves?

A: Surveys report consistent answers to that question, and the answers are often in identical order. Results of a typical survey, in order of importance, are listed below:

  • Live my dream
  • Be my own boss
  • Use my management skills and my education
  • Grow a business from concept to reality
  • Create wealth

Interestingly, money is seldom the prime motivator.
