The goods: I answer to one person....my business partner. I don't have to go to corporate to get approval re. a decision. You can make good money. I like the fact that we put people to work. I also like the fact that we generate revenue which means we pay our share of taxes which means we contribute to society. You get paid if you produce.
The bads: It isn't rocket science and it can get boring. My income can vary 30% from year to year. You don't get paid if you don't produce. You can do everything right and still have a deal fall through (ie. if a person gets another offer they decide to take.....a person gets a counter offer they decide to take....a person decides it's not the job for them).
