What are the advantages and disadvantages of both being an entrepreneur and an employee?

First, let'd deal with the pros and cons of being an employee... 1. One of the good things about a regular job is that you will receive your money every month (well, at least if you are a civil servant). That means you can just keep doing what you do, and not worry about a business project not working out, a client not paying, or else.

2. The perks of being an employee (again, this works more for civil servants) include paid vacations and sick days, health and life insurance, a retirement plan, social security..... That makes life easier for the employee.

3. Separating life and work. Not everyone wants to be the busy business owner who leaves a family event to handle a crisis at work or the entrepreneur and parent who’s always on the phone or answering emails and travelling all the time to meet clients. On the other hand...

1. No extra amount of work will make them any richer. In fact, it will only help their bosses. If you are looking to change your financial situation and want to be more independent, then being an employee is not the right path for you.

2. Boredom, job monotony. Most people hate waking up in the morning, the commute, the office and atmosphere, the tedious projects. If you dedicate your whole life to that, you might end up depressed and lose the desire to achieve more or make a change.

Second - Pros and cons of being an entrepreneur 1. 1st con: Starting a company is not easy It involves paperwork, taking responsibility, doing research, handling finance and legal issues. Moreover, that is something that will make most people quite stressed .

2. A sad thing about entrepreneurship is that you need to make plenty of mistakes before you get it right. Your first business or business idea is unlikely to be successful, so don’t expect any money is coming in the first month or even year after starting your own company.

3. The work never stops As an employee, you are just waiting for the workday to be over so you can relax at home and not even think about anything workrelated. Then, you wait for the weekend so you can do something fun. However, when entrpeneurs are building a business, they work all the time. Their mind is always trying to fix problems, thinking of ways to find new clients....

4. A plus point is that you are your boss Entrepeneurship involves risk, uncertainty, stress and failure. However, at the end of the day, no one else is telling you what to do. You can take a day off whenever you feel like because you will catch

up later or do some more work in advance. That means you have all the flexibility in the world, which equals freedom. Then, you own your time. That is our most precious possession, and employees do not have it under their control. However, as an entrepreneur, you do.

Employee or entrepreneur? You have to define your priorities and passions in life, figure out what you truly want, and then take action in the right direction.
