Many people seek many kinds of rewards from their careers. Working for yourself can provide you with many rewards. Those whom are self-employed often say that they like the following features of self-employment: independence, personal satisfaction, social recognition and control of their own income. People who work for themselves have the independence to make their own decisions. They decide what they are going to do and where and how they plan to do it. They decide how many hours they are willing to work and when to take time off. Please who work for themselves find that they have more freedom, flexibility, and control over their work schedule and their employees.
