    Well, the one thing I would comment on is the idea that having your own business would require you the same amount of work you are doing now. I guess it is possible but in most cases I would find the idea weird. Presumably you are starting small which means you will be working with very limited resources. At the start you are likely to be lucky to just break even. Your resources being limited has the implication that you can't just spend money to solve certain things BUT shit still has to get done. Which means you have to do it or you have to further overwork some other poor SOB to do it. I have no idea of what your current work situation is with your bosses but you might just find out why they act the way they do (or worst if you consider its your money that is lost when something does not get done or someone does not do something well).

    Now, I am by no means trying to dissuade you, having your own succesful business would by all intents and purposes be far more rewarding on multiple accounts than working for someone else. I am just making the point that its unlikely that the amount of work and stress you put into a regular good job with good benefits and whatnot is unlikely to be the same you will need for your own business. Its one thing when you work for someone and you are using their resources to generate profits for them in exchange for an income and it is an entirely different matter when its your resources you are using to make money and you depend on your work and that of employees to make your resources yield profit.
    No, it requires far more work because you're doing everything by yourself at first. At his current workplace, there are people for everything - few for IT problems, few to interact with and help customers, few to do finance stuff, few for lawyering, and etc. If thornles is his own man, then he'll have to do all of that until or unless he hires more people. It takes far more work, and you're less likely to break even when you start out unless you already have the equipment, location, and/or clients.

    Being an entrepreneur is a very hard work, especially with the amount of risks one would have to take.

    I was just mentioning a very general "boss" scenario. In general a being your own boss scenario does kinda require at least a proper minion for you to mercilessly overwork (not because you are evil, you just don't have a choice, you get to choose to be evil later although I don't think that is a good business model). I would guess that even a startup would generally require at least some help but then again that would depend on the details of whatever he intends on doing.....

    The problems would lie in having enough money to hire someone and being able to trust them though. He might not be able to get someone to work for him immediately if he can't pay the person, and few would join thorny's venture if they already have a stable job.

Not to mention, you're planning to get married soon which means you may need solid financial income. Being your own boss sounds appealing at first but it comes with additional responsibilities and stress which may affect your private life adversely. If you see a future in the company you're currently working in, I would think twice before making such a move. Rude, inconsiderate bosses are everywhere, just ignore them, don't let them get under your skin. If you really think a new business will make your life better, then I wish you the best of luck, just make sure it's the right decision for you.
    Thanks. I have been in real life long enough to assess or weigh my options. Being boss or having bad bosses doesn't mean I will jump at stuff on a whim. I would not start a business unless I am sure it can work.

You also have to find a way to make sure your business gets attention and makes people want to go to you. You also have to take a lot of risks. All in all, unless you've done your research and have an idea what to expect, you're better off sticking with your job and demeaning yourself to put food on the table.

    Like most people.
    I have already considered all these scenarios. Talked to friends, relatives and people I know who are associated with business community. There are great opportunities where I am living. Its a big residential community and commercial sector is under-development. Long story short, there are areas I can explore and succeed.

    I am prepared for that. And I will not quit from the job right away. First of all, I will try to get some months' leaves. If I will not get them, I just have to manage both work and business. It will be little hard but I have my father to help me as well during this transition period.

    As long as you're prepared and know the risks, then go for it. Just make sure you have a backup plan just in case. You better succeed though, chubsters.


    I confess I've gone for a week without soft drinks (unless cranberry and pomegranate juices count), and I feel weird. I miss Pepsi... but I haven't had acid reflux for days. My throat was probably so happy that I got sick. D:

    Re: The MangaHelpers Confessional Thread - Part 2

    So my last mobile carrier decided to give me a free month of service despite being a pre paid card plan.

    To which I just found out when I turned the old mobile on for fun and realized I had service despite not having paid for a few months. I was like...... dafek!!

    But then I serious-ed because everyone has my new mobile number and I have no ideas what to do with the old one....


    /I am lost..............

    I think that is a good choice, just think what if you start using it and all of sudden you get a mail of huge bill in it

    Yup I agree. However this morning I heard an ad on the car radio that apparently the carrier is offering a montns free service xD.
    Somekind of holiday special.

    I confess going from writing grad school apps to writing business plan stuff is very jarring.

    Grad school: "I kinda got this research and stuffs, I'm awesome but not too awesome to look like a shyster, I don't want to brag but let me brag, I have been into this since elementary school though you don't want to hear it because you've heard it before, please look at this rather cool pile of publications."

    Business: "I'M THE MOST AWESOME PERSON IN THE WORLD GODFREAKINGDAMMIT, HEAR MY ENTREPRENEURIAL VISION FOR THE WORLD, FOR I AM TOTALLY BRIMMING WITH BRILLIANCE AND INSANITY! I WILL RULE AS THE NEXT BEST THING TO SLICED BREAD AND BUTTER! I AM KING! I AM THE KING!"

    I confess that I accidentally ripped my pants the other day (yes, near the butt area). Thankfully, it wasn't in public; I was at a friend's place.
    My friend lent me a pair of her pants before I went home, and when I arrived home, I quickly changed into my usual PJ shorts and chucked my ripped pants into the washing machine.

    When the pants came out of the wash, I feigned ignorance and blamed the washing machine so that I won't get an unpleasant earful from my mum.
