What Does Being Your Own Boss Do To Your STRESS Level?

Q: Do you find that you actually are under more stress as your own boss or less stress because you are able to control your workload?

A: Yes and yes! Life is full of stressors, both positive and negative, and self-employment offers lots of both. For me, though, the negative stress of having to drum up business and worry about costs and cash flow has always been outweighed by the good stress of being motivated to do my best, in my own way, and on my own schedule.
