Do you own your own business or have you dreamed of starting your own business?

If yes, in which industry or field is your business in/would your business be?

What were/are the primary reasons for owning your own business?

If you've been dreaming of starting and owning your own business, what's keeping you from doing so?

If you own or have owned your own business, how did you get started? What were the pros and cons, and how steep was the learning curve?

Do you own your own business or have you dreamed of starting your own business? === I do not although I once tried to be a consultant when I was between working corporate and teaching. I don't sell myself well so that wasn't really a money-earner but it did keep me current in y field while looking for work elsewhere.

I always dreamed of starting a bookstore --- a guaranteed opportunity to go broke, IMO, so, after studying up on it, I decided against even trying. I'm not a risk taker, actually...

At one point in my life I thought about it.

I honestly have to say that I have never, ever had that desire.


I do not possess the kind of personality that one needs to be successful in her own business, I think.
