Being an entrepreneur can be very rewarding because you are working for yourself and most often on something you are really passionate about and care about. You’re taking your big idea and putting it into action and making an income from it!
Being an entrepreneur takes a lot of energy, a lot of risk taking and being okay with failure (which is only part of the learning experience anyway). Being an entrepreneur often means that you are working a lot of hours but not getting paid for it—so it takes commitment to a goal and a vision beyond a pay check. Being an entrepreneur takes a lot of hard work—and the return on your investment is a lot of satisfaction, skill building and possibly the chance to hire other people to help them on their employment path.
