Having your own business can be great.
However it's also a lot more work than it is to work for someone else.
Having your own business means you still have to work and usually work harder.
But you can also eventually once you get established lower your work level by having additional employees.
If you do hire employees I would recommend hiring a place such as staff leasing to do the payroll as it saves a lot of work and headaches with the IRS.
You can get pretty rich owning your own business if you get into the right business and work hard.
