What do you think are the advantages of running your own business?

The best things about running your own business are not having to comply with others’ orders and being able to make decisions on your own. Generally speaking being able to seize a turned up opportunity is the quality you need to possess to make a successful businessman. If you bear such a feature you will definitely enjoy freedom of choice. If you are competitive by nature you are bound to outplay your opponents whose willingness to prosper is as strong as yours. For some people business is a game to play so as to demonstrate that they are clever enough to make practical use of their brains. Roughly speaking running a business is an opportunity to play your game with your own rules. Whether the benefits outweigh the drawbacks remains an open question. Every particular individual has to give his own answer to it.

What do you think are the disadvantages of running your own business?

To tell you the truth, it is far easier for me talk about the disadvantages of running your own business than making up good things about it. Many people would find my attitude to it a bit strange but here goes my train of thoughts. Overworking is not what makes us healthy. Irregular working hours won’t do you good either. Going to a faraway resort will not make up for a 24 hour stress during the year. A businessman has to keep everything under control. Won’t it add anything to unbeaten stress? Unfortunately, yes. Everything has its price and everything is gained at someone’s expense. A relatively luxurious way of life is a glamorous thing which may only compensate the enormous effort put into it. Once you are a success being in business is ok but one day you may become broke and not many people are strong enough to adjust to their new lives. Money is one of many things which come and go.

What sort of person makes a good manager?

The first thing which springs to my mind when I think of a manager is trade. Though trade is closely associated with buying and selling commodities of any kind, the most crucial quality for a manager is being able to find a suitable person for a vacant position. A manager is supposed to build up a team of specialists who would be able to carry out any task. Yet another important quality for a good manager is to let good ideas find their way up. Good ideas deserve to be put into action otherwise the people who are the brains behind them will find another place to try the ideas out. Due to mismanagement you may lose good specialists as a truly good one will find someone who give what he asks for. In the end a bad manager, not a good specialist will be at a disadvantage. As for me it’s clear that a good manager should be a sensible person not forgetting that though he is a person in charge his main duty to take care of those who earn him and his company an income. Care about your employees and they will give you a helping hand when you are in trouble
