  1. James Bregenzer, owner, Bregenzer Group: “I love new experiences but seldom can you experience new things from the confines of your office cubicle. This all changes when you are running the show. Starting your own business will guarantee you’ll always be facing new challenges and experiencing something new.”
  1. Karen Swim, owner, Words for Hire: “As an employee, you are one element in a recipe. You do not get to choose what gets baked, how it is prepared or to whom it gets served. Additionally, your ingredient may be the one that will not make or break the recipe. As an entrepreneur, you have the freedom to design your own cake.”
  1. Brittany Ringersen, CEO and founder, Lighthouse Recovery Institute: “When my old boss told me to stay in my lane, I knew at that very moment that I had to do something else. The day I walked into my office and had the ability to grow my company was the day I knew I was exactly where I was meant to be.”
  1. Elizabeth Henson, owner, Elizabeth Henson Photos: “The best part of being an entrepreneur is that you can get out of it exactly what you put in. The harder you work, the bigger the reward.”
  1. Brian Pfeiffer, creator and CEO, Design a Tea: “The best part? Being able to say these two words: My company.'”
  1. Linda Pophal, owner, Strategic Communications: “By far, what I enjoy the most about being an entrepreneur is the power to interact with a broad range of companies and individuals and to learn from them.”
  1. Priyanka Murthy, head designer and CEO, Arya Esha: “I feel good at the end of the work week when I get to give my employees their checks. My business is a small business — fewer than 15 employees — so I know all my employees well and like talking to them about their work and teaching them if/when they need it. Also, knowing that there are people that count on me for their livelihood drives me to keep growing my business.”
  1. Susan Baxter, president and CEO, Hire a WingWoman: “One of the best parts of being an entrepreneur is that I can hire people to represent my company and myself, not some conglomerate I’m working for. I have control over how I want my company to be branded.”
  1. Jim Belosic, CEO, ShortStack: “I’m never uninterested, since I’m always working on making something better. It’s not a job where you do the same thing for 30 years, then retire. I get to try hundreds of different routes — some good, some bad — and learn as I go.”
  1. Tessa Yutadco, founder and CEO, My Prime Skin Care: “Becoming an entrepreneur gave me an incomparable and extraordinary chance to reconnect with and help people in the Philippines and also celebrate my Filipino culture.”
  2. Tim Segraves, co-founder, Revaluate:To me, one of the best things about being an entrepreneur is you’re helping form the future of the world.  Whether it’s a new consumer product, B2B service or a new medical device, what you do can have a deep effect on the lives of others.”
  1. Matt Becker, founder, Mom and Dad Money: “I love that I get to decide who I help and how I help them. My clients are people I’ve chosen because I personally identify with them, so the difficulties I’m solving are both fascinating and gratifying. And I get to be imaginative in how I solve them, which would be harder to do as an employee.”

  1. Jill Butler, CEO, RedKey Realty: “You have the chance to create a genuine, significant, and sustainable corporate culture!”
  1. Dana Rivera, owner, Dana Rivera Films: “The best part of being an entrepreneur is getting to meet so many gifted entrepreneurs, change-makers, and passionate people, whether online or in person. If I didn’t have to force myself to make my business succeed, I would have never stepped outside of my introvert comfort zone and made the outstanding connections I have today.”
  2. Angelica L. Cox, owner and operator, The Wizor: “I find the best part of it is that it permits me the flexibility to go to events at my children’s school during the day, as well as volunteer at their school when needed. A 9-to-5 corporate job would not allow me to do that.”
  1. Tiffany Mason, founder and CEO, Mason Coaching and Consulting: “The best part about being an entrepreneur is being able to work with like-minded individuals and make a positive mark in the universe.”
  1. David McKeegan, co-founder, Greenback Expat Tax Services: “I have needed to learn and think and make decisions that impact the whole business, so I am perpetually learning and searching new methods to try. It is exponentially more interesting than a clearly defined corporate job.”
  2. Ryan Farley, co-founder, Lawnstarter: “I get to wear T-shirts and bring my pets to the office. But actually, being an entrepreneur is great because I don’t have to deal with any of the redundant rules, limitations, and politics of a large company. I just get to work on creating a company I love.”

  1. Steve Silberberg, head guide and owner, FitPacking: “One part of being an entrepreneur that I probably enjoy a bit too much is the media exposure. Even if I’ve spent all day tinkering with ad campaigns or with tech support trying to fix a computer issue, that little hit of validation is enjoyable.”
  1. Adi Bittan, co-founder and CEO, OwnerListens: “What I love most about being an entrepreneur is something I call the founder high. That’s when a consumer tells you that you created something that delighted them, thrilled them, and made their lives better.”
  1. Dan Thornton, founder, TheWayoftheWeb.net: “I’m not trapped in following the same career for the rest of my working life. I can go on to build my authorship and merchandising businesses, but if I do decide that there’s an opportunity to do something else, it’s all open to look into.”
  1. Shel Horowitz, owner, Green and Profitable: “I love the interesting people I’ve been able to work with here in the country and overseas.”
  2. David Murdico, partner and creative director, Supercool Creative Agency: “I have the freedom to make decisions, my own decisions — right or wrong — without having to ask anyone for permission or approval.”
  3. Liz Scully, CEO, Rethink Central: “I’ll say that, by far, the best bit of the many benefits of working for myself is that I now possess “work pajamas!”
  4. Jamie Broderick, founder, Network Now Connections: “I get to make an actual impact in my community. It is very rewarding and gratifying.”
  5. Emerson Taymor, founding partner, Philosophie: “I love that I have received a real-world MBA while doing what I am passionate about.”
  1. Melisa Tropeano LaTour, president and founder, The MTL Communications Group: “I can be as creative and as wild as I want to be with my company. If you work for someone else, you are working for their passions and in their way. I want it my way. I want my story.”
  1. Travis Bennett, managing director, Studio Digita: “Long days and busy weeks are a given, but when you look back at what you’ve accomplished, it’s all had a goal, and it’s creating value. Not for your boss, or an absentee owner — you.”
  2. Thomas Frank, executive director, Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan: “As a former CEO of a number of startups, I now assist in mentoring the next generation of the same.”
  1. Patty Kennedy, CEO, Kennedy Spencer: “I think being an entrepreneur is absolutely the best path for women. I think this is true not just on a personal level, but as a society. The freedom, confidence, character, financial sustainability, education and, significantly, sense of self that entrepreneurship provides has a true trickle-down effect.”
  1. Monique Lewis, owner, Monique Lewis Management: “I love being able to enjoy the weekend every day. Yes, I love what I do, and my customers are amazing, but I can go shopping anytime I want, hang out with friends, go to movies, etc.”
  2. Don Bishop, president, Affinigent: “For me, it really is the idea of being responsible for my own success or failure. I would much rather be at the mercy of the marketplace than any “superior” in the workplace.”
  1. Vannessa Wade, owner, Connect The Dots: “Sure, doing what you love is a positive to working for yourself, but what I enjoy most is being able to track my success. Unfortunately we have been taught that success is increasing numbers, never missing a day of work, or landing a client. But my success is literally waking up each day with a game plan and making it work.”
  2. Lisa Merriam, president, Merriam Associates: “I once had a supervisor complain that I was always blending things — combining unlikely things together. I realized I wasn’t cut out for the follow-the-rules corporate world. As an independent brand strategist, I can conflate to my heart’s content, and it is called creative, strategic thinking.”
  1. Beret Kirkeby, founder, Body Mechanics Orthopedic Massage Therapy: “I quite literally cannot do anything else. I have a vicious learning disability, by U.S. educational standards. I cannot spell; I cannot data file; I cannot do mathematics. In fact, most low-level tasks are rather literally unachievable for me, so working my way up the corporate ladder never quite worked out.”
  2. Havona Madama, CEO and founder, KidKlass: “The thing I love most about being an entrepreneur is the opportunity to change other people’s lives.”
