  1. There are many advantages of being an entrepreneur. You get to be your own boss. You can pick your own hours. Your earning potential is almost infinite because you aren’t working on a strict salary. There are also some disadvantages. You really aren’t guaranteed any income if your business doesn’t perform. It may be harder for you to stop thinking about work after hours, and you could become obsessed with working. You also have to be fairly knowledgable in all areas of a business in order to be successful.

    My three business ideas are: starting an amateur sports league in a city or area, a flooring business, and a gym.

  2. Some of the advantages of being an entrepreneur are choosing when you want to work and where you want to work. You also get to choose what you want to make and what you want to sell. The disadvantages of being an entrepreneur are being alone a lot, not having a regular salary, having an unpredictable work schedule, and having other competition. I think three potential businesses I could start would be a daycare program, a pet grooming service, or some sort of store.

  3. There are many advantages to being a entrepreneur. you can make the business or product just how you want and you can be your own boss. Make your own hours. you can hire who you want.

  6. There is major upside to being an entrepreneur if a person knows what they are doing. Entrepreneur’s usually start off failing many of their beginning projects and get discouraged. Once you get past the fact of lack of money and all of your failures you may start to get where you want to be. Many of the entrepreneurs said that it took time for them to get where they wanted to be. Advantages of being a successful entrepreneur is obviously the money that you would be raking in, the glory, and what most say is the best, feeling like you changed the world or had an impact on the world. Disadvantages of being an entrepreneur would be failing so miserably that you run out of funds and you have to get a job that you hate, accomplishing something and then no one liking it so it is a bust, or simply getting stuck and not knowing how to finish your project.
