Owners & Dreamers Differ On Small Business Motivations

Small business owners, and people who dream of becoming entrepreneurs, have a lot in common. They also have some significant differences. More than 50% of Americans polled dream of owning their own company some day, while 10% already have a business, and a 33% have absolutely no interest in stepping out on their own, according to a survey conducted by Opinion Research for FedEx Corp.
Among the strongest reasons for owning a business — doing something you love — was cited by both current owners and those who want to become one by nearly the same percentage, 39% and 38%, respectively.
But being your own boss was mentioned by a larger percentage of owners, 26%, than those dreaming of owning a business, 17%. The third most-often cited reason, to have work and family flexibility, was mentioned by 18% of the owners and 16% of the dreamers.
The survey found that 10% of dreamers cited having something to pass on to children, while 5% of owners gave that as a reason for ownership. Of the dreamers, 7% mentioned they wanted to give back to the community, compared with 4% of owners.

The pollsters also found that men are more likely than women (20% to 13%) to cite being one’s own boss as a reason, while women are more likely than men (20% to 13%) to mention work and family flexibility. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

Follow The Footsteps Of Success

In 1946 Estee Lauder founded the famed cosmetic firm on her kitchen table. Her son Leonard is now Executive Chairman of this very profitable company, which does billions in annual sales. These are his common-sense observations, which he terms "Rules for Success in Business."
Rule #1:
Lawyers and accountants make very good lawyers and accountants. But if it's your own business, you better take your own advice. For no one is more sincerely interested in your business than you.
Rule #2:
When a person with experience meets a person with money, the person with experience will get the money and the person with the money will get the experience. (Sometimes called valuable lesson.)
Rule #3:
Be lucky, and be prepared. That way you're ready to exploit a good business opportunity when it comes your way.
Rule #4:
Stay out of sight of all but your customers. Don't wave a red flag at a competitor who could easily trample you with the flick of a marketing decision.
Rule #5:
You can do almost anything while you're small enough. That's when you are able to make your greatest market innovations without countermoves from competitors who feel threatened.
Rule #6:
Think small for big profits. Keep the organization divided into manageable units.
Rule #7:
It takes a thief to catch a thief. Increase sales by establishing competing brands of your own.
Rule #8:
Listen to your customers. It's the best way to make your business grow.
Rule #9:
Build your business on true quality, and have justified confidence in your product.
Rule #10:
Understand the essential nature of your business. Stick to what you know, and don't change it lightly.
