Trending as the most rewarding facet of being an entrepreneur was independence and the ability to be the decision-maker, which 42 percent of business owners cited. Other highly cited benefits of entrepreneurship included:

Job satisfaction/Pride (17 percent)
Schedule flexibility/Family time (12 percent)
Interaction with customers (11 percent)
Financial rewards/Money (7 percent)
Job creation capability (2 percent)

When asked about their motivation behind opening a small business, 69 percent of business owners listed securing their financial future as very important, followed by being their own boss at 66 percent and setting their own hours at 51 percent.
These are the latest statistics in an uphill trend for small business owners. In a Gallup report from May, 84 percent of small business owners agreed they would still be entrepreneurs if they had to do it all over again.
Freedom really does bring happiness, according to a recent survey of small business owners by Manta, the largest online community dedicated to small business. Out of 1,105 entrepreneurs surveyed, almost three out of four (72 percent) stated that owning their own business allowed them more freedom, and 52 percent said that having the ability to control their own destiny was the greatest reward of being an entrepreneur.

Other top perks of business ownership included:
Being their own boss (23 percent)
Increased confidence and self-esteem (7 percent)
Monetary benefits (4 percent)

More than half of business owners (59 percent) also said that the greatest freedom they gained with entrepreneurship was being able to pursue their passions and interest in their work, followed by working for themselves and not a boss (19 percent) and setting their own work hours (17 percent).

When you work for someone else, you rarely get to choose whom you work with. If you don't like your co-workers you'd better start sending our resumes. Some people thrive on the routine of their job – performing the same tasks day after day. As an entrepreneur, you can bet that each day will be filled with new opportunities to challenge yourself, be creative and learn something new. "The great thing about owning a small business is I rarely experience the same day twice. There are few things that get entrepreneurs as excited as when they get to interact with their customers. Rather than hiding behind a series of automated greetings, small business owners thrive on dealing one-on-one with their best clients – or making the decision to get rid of those customers they don't like. One of the biggest differences in owning your own company as opposed to working for someone else is the sense of pride you establish in building something of your own. "There is nothing like being successful through your own leadership.
