Hi Alec! I agree with the previous comment about the type of business you run. It definitely does matter; for example I know of a family that owns a restaurant and it's a family business so the primary owner is not always working but sharing the work among his other family members. Some businesses may require you to work on the weekends too and some may not!

Best of luck!

Hi Alec,

As Alexandra mentions, think of what you enjoy doing, when you love what you do, it doesn't feel like work. I would encourage you to pay attention to the times you are so engrossed in doing something and you don't realize hours have passed. That's your passion! Once you find that, explore work in doing that and whether it is a business or a job, it will work itself out. Also, don't be afraid to try something and change course if you stop enjoying it.

Good Luck!!

Georgeta’s Answer

Hey there!
I'm a business owner, and it really depends on what you're offering and how you manage your time. Owning a business is a lot of work, bookkeeping, meeting federal deadlines, all while supplying the best service you can to your clients.

Personally, I try to give myself Saturdays off, but it's hard! So if you want to own a business, I say make sure you have a well thought out plan, register with the state when you're ready, and manage your expectations of what the business should look like, how much you should be putting into it, etc.

Good luck!

Alexandra’s Answer

Hi Alec,

I think this depends on the type of business you run. I work a standard 9 to 5 job, but my fiance is a business owner. He works long days and most weeks it is 7 days out of the week. He has some flexibility but it can be limited at times and it is not as easy to take days off as it is for me. Running a business can be very hands on, especially if you are overseeing employees.

I think certain types of businesses can operate and allow for a lot of flexibility depending on what the business does. But even when you are not working 7 days a week, a business owner has to understand that work can appear abruptly.

I don't believe any of this should matter. The important thing is for you to look at things you enjoy doing and identify ways to turn it into a business or career fields that allow you to do what you love. There is no one way to do things and what is for one individual may not always be right for the next individual.

The one thing that remains consistent is when you identify the things you like to do and center your work around that, disappointment will not exist because it often does not feel like it is work.
