    <p align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">Working for my self has been my dream. After working for others for years, last year I started a small company here in Beijing the capital city of the most populated nation in the world. </span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">Since then I hardly get up to 5hours sleep. I worry about everything, how to pay office rent, how to pay staff salary, how to get new and suitable staff, how to pay the local govt, how to pay for internet advert etc.</span></p> <p align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">&nbsp;I am beginning to wonder if it&rsquo;s really safe to work for oneself. So guys would you&nbsp;prefer working for your self or work for others, just earn your salary at the end of the month and be at peace or keep on aspiring high.</span></p>

    No matter the industry and no matter where you are. Let's have your opinion.

    depend on who you want to be! what your final aim to work for yourself! what's your ambition! what have driven you to start a company in the first place?

    Don't forget what have led you here and now, and you will get the answer!

    but yeah, never safe or guarantee to start a company on yourself!

    @ DnD .. You prefer work for yourself / husband or work for someone all your life?

  • Amalie Sæverud

    don't ask me! I got my answer always! I'd rather die to defend what I believe! what about you?

    you would die for what you believe?

    ...

    Hahahahaha ... working for yourself, as a owner of some sort, does not mean you dont get help or delegate ...

    You have not said what you are doing and how many people are depending on you etc ...

    To me, the term "work for yourself" does not necessarily mean a large team of people ... maybe you could get an assistant or admin person to help with some of these ...

    @DnD, I may not die for what I believe but I am willing to go extra miles to prove what I believe

    @叮噹叔叔 (义工) No matter how many assistants you get, all the bulks are on your head. lets go by small enterprise.. at most 10staff.

    keep on pushing yourself! it's not easy for sure! it's like die first and rebirth! but if your direction is right, the market is there, you work hard, I think finally you will get there!

    。。。

    (continued) ... about a decade ago, I was working in Sydney for a UK company, and there was only me and boss working across APAC, so he also doubled up as the sales person ... we were renting a "shared office" and and our payroll was outsourced, so, we were working for someone, but we were literally on our own ...

    ... my best guess is that similar service is available in China, and perhaps not too cheap, but it helps to ease the workload ...

    ... like I had told my wife in the past, it is admirable for a manager or a boss to take everything into his/her own hands, but that's not what the manager or boss is supposed to do ...
