I would rather bust my rear end for myself. I like being in control of my own security.
Would you rather work for someone else and be secure, or have your own business and work hard to make it secure?
I worked for others for many years, then I started my own business about 30 years ago. Working for myself was the greatest and I wish I had started sooner in my life. I made a lot more money too.
I think it would still depend upon my current situation. Because what if you would want to register your own business but unfortunately you are still financially incapable?
