Than from the outside it looks like we are all rich and sit back and count our money and never have to work. It's definitely not for everyone.

From what I read about being self-employed when I was taking business class in college, it is not for me. A lot of responsibility and pretty much everyone I've met who ran/runs their own business had people steal from them and/or rip them off or just didn't know how to make things work. Customers don't always pay, supplies don't always show up on time, employees can be lazy or greedy, and the taxes are a nightmare.

I have been self-employed most of the last 40 years. Even did my own business taxes.

I've got 10 years of self employment. I love it and hate it but overall it has done well for me.

I think you guys are the right kinds of people for running the businesses. A lot of people think they can handle it, but then realize they can't. Some people are great at it and enjoy it, while others are terrible.
