What does it take to be your own Boss?

[I see a lot of adds on social media and FB advertising the opportunity to be an Eauntripenure. I see them and just shake my head. I am convinced they want people to be data entry people or people just to advertise their good for them. I may be a cynic about this, but I really do not believe that people would give away opportunities with such large rewards that they propose at times.

Sure start your own web page, but without you advertising that site, no one will come.

  • Then you will sell someone else stuff on your web page?
  • What is the commission you will get?
  • Will you pay to have a web page on their server?
  • How much time will you spend on selling something for a commission?

Just talk to any person that runs a business and they will all tell you the same thing.

It takes all your time, you need to be married to there business. That is to say, the shop takes priority. You need all the skills of being a good bookkeeper, marketing, and you need to know what makes your shop run. That is you. If you do not know how to do it you will pay others to do it for you. Above all, you need to love what you do.

Not to mention you need to know about contract law and any governmental statutes that dictate over your type of business. 

What I know about running Auctions and having a second-hand shop, and to give that knowledge away as an opportunity to others, comes at a cost.
