In as much as I will love to work for a very good company that the pay package is very good and with good working environment and conditions I will always prefer having my own business because that the best decision any human can take.

Having one's business is like planting one's garden of course in due season one will havest bountifully and the good thing is that the farm will continue to produce more fruits in it's season. Owning a business is not just for self, if one prosper in it, it can even outlived the person.

One is hardly wealthy working for a company but it will be possible with one's company and running one's business one can put all one's creative ideas, skills and talents to work.

I don't think we can go wrong having our own business.

I would prefer to have my business all the way. I have a small one less than 4 months old and despise the challenges i am enjoying all the way. You get to become your own boss and for some reason you always trying to make the right decisions to make the business work. When employed at times you get to do what will please the boss and maybe hurt the business.

With your own business you get to learn alot. From personal experience,start small and take every moment,every mistake and every success as a lesson. If you can learn from this it will go along way when you grow the business to a global level. With your own business you also get hopes that one day you can sit back and let people work for you. This is something you can never dream of in employment sector.

You also get to create employment,meet business people and learn from them. You get to learn sources of your products,competition and how to overcome. I can go on and on. My choice is having my own business.

Working for yourself has many advantages if you are independent minded and have the money to start your business. The advantages of setting your own schedule, vacationing when you desire, potentially earning as much as your efforts allow is very attractive to many people. Businesses require much capital up front, people you can depend on to carry your vision through and must be efficient to make the grade. If you plan to be on sight only a few hours a day, your business will struggle. One business owner I knew started a restaurant. He could not be there daily because he had a full time job. Eventually it failed. Why? His employees did not show up on time, stealing was rampant, food quality was not being maintained, the facility was cited for its unsanitary conditions, etc., Suggest starting an internet business first. This way you can get acquainted with business practices, the management of money etc. Working for others has certain securities built into the job. Nevertheless, I have always worked for myself. Thank you for allowing me to answer this question. Mark Davis, MD

I highly doubt there's anyone who prefers working for someone than having their own business. Everyone likes to be in control especially when it comes to making a livelihood. But unfortunately, not everyone has the will or finances to kick star their own business. I think this is the major reason why we all resort to working for some company.

Personally, I'll like to own a business of my controlling. I have several ideas but there's very little I can do about it since I like the financial basis for starting one. I know business can be brought up step by step which involves starting out on a low scale. But with modern trends as well as the stiff competition out there, one is going to be needing more than just a low scale strategy to make a business stand.

The best possible way of starting out is by working under someone and hope to able to gain the needed experience, and raise some type of capital before deciding to start a personal business.

I love the place where you said that we should start from somewhere. Owning a business is not always easy but once we gain the needed experience, we can get ahead to start something on our own. 
I moved from employment to starting a small business and to tell the truth you cannot gain business experience working. The two to me appears to be two different fields. Running your own is in a class of its own. You make a decision it backfires or works for you. Whichever the case you have to keep moving. In employment you make a mistake maybe some losses are incured you still get you salary. Its not the same in business.

I saw a post here last week talking about a particular recovery expert (recovermycrypto27 at gmail dot com). I must say it was a wonderful experience working with him. I lost a sum of $236,070 to  hackers thinking I was going to get my money early this year. I trued reaching my broker when my money was due but he kept declining. He blocked me later though. I complained to the company but they refused to reply my several texts. This made me so mad that, I had to try out other means to get my hard earned money back.

Fortunately, I came across recovermycrypto27 at gmail dot com who helped me hijack my money from those fraudulent set of people. You got any issues related to this?

Don't hesitate to get across to him. Do that and thank me later.

I have mixed answer on this. 

First I'd start with working for somebody. And then understand that routine. And from there onwards, I'd make sure to learn how to get leads and how to get the work done. This approach I'd document till I make sure to quit the job. 

After quitting the job, I'd start getting the leads for myself. And also learn how to get new leads one day at a time. And hopefully that should be a good starter for starting up a business.

Working for yourself provides more job security than working as an employee in someone else's business because there is less risk, more control, and greater rewards. You make the business decisions. You diversify your income so your earnings don't originate from a single source.

Non of the above.
I want to own a company that offers a job so I can employ or hire people to work for it. I don't want to work for a company, and I don't want to work only with myself.

I prefer to have my own business. It is good to deal with a business partnership. However, there will be a hassle thing when it comes to money. It is better to have my own so that people can only work under my supervision.

own my own business, although it's a big responsibility it paying the bills is worth. I like to take charge of everything I think I would suit being a boss. I was actually thinking of in the near future to open my own bakery.

Both are good options to go by but it really depends with your passion and satisfaction. For me I will go to having my own business and work for myself while employing other people to help in the growth of my company.

I like to start my own business. It is really painfully experience to work under some person. The peer pressure was very high on working under other person.

This is a very interesting question, whenever you're working for a company, there are a set of rules and regulations that governs the work. When these regulations are breached you can lose the job and even get arrested. But when you work for your yourself, the rules are designer by you, so when you breach them there are no consequences that you face and breaking them can collapse the business.

Whether to work for a company or start your own business depends on your personal goals, skills, and interests. Both options have their own advantages and disadvantages, and it's important to carefully consider them before making a decision.
