Doug’s Answer

From my experience as an entrepreneur and providing services to entrepreneurs, here are a few pros and cons.

Pros:
The chance to build a business that's yours.
Control over your time and work-life balance.
Often, the ability to conduct your work/business from anywhere you wish.
The possibility of unlimited income.
The chance to build a lasting business alone or with partners/employees.
A way to do exactly the work you want to do.

Cons:
There's the risk that you don't have all of the skills/knowledge necessary to create and operate your business, so it fails.
Whether the business is successful or struggling, the amount of work and time required can be high and there's a risk of burnout.
You could lose your or other people's monetary investment if the business isn't successful.
You might need to pivot with your products or services to better adapt to the market need, which can be frustrating.

Before attempting to start your business, you must do your research into the products/services you wish to offer, how that type of business operates, the skills/knowledge necessary to operate your business, consider the partners/co-founders who might help you successfully build the business, and the market you plan to target (super important). With grit, patience, skill, creativity, flexibility, adaptability, and an idea for which there's a clear need, you can succeed and have a wonderful time building a successful business.

It's a good question, and I do not mean to trivialize the topic, but the summary of the question is this:
- the pro is that you could get rich
- the con is that you could go broke. There is high risk in this direction, but I wish you well.
