I think we will all have different drivers for starting out on our own or even just considering it.

Being of European background (and a migrant), I’ve always had a rising urge to aspire to something I can call my own, with which I could have my own comfortable financial freedom.

After working with so called ‘senior management’ and ‘entrepreneurs’ within my industry – I can honestly say that my choice to go out alone was not purely financial. I would rather slowly build up my practice to equate to my previous salary, than witness the mismanagement of clients and staff.

I really appreciate that every dollar earned is my dollar in reward for my late nights, outside hour calls and hard yards. Earning respect and getting a thank you direct as opposed to not at all, via an employer, is an amazing feeling!
