Many people dream of becoming an entrepreneur – of being their own boss. It sounds like a dream come true – being able to set your own hours and never having to answer to anyone else ever again. The truth of course is that it can be a lot more difficult than you may imagine. There are amazing rewards that come from being an entrepreneur but there are also many pitfalls.
