Starting a business has always been a part of the American Dream, and many Americans still would like to fulfill that dream and become their own boss. Consider these five signs you're ready to go out on your own:
- You've been pondering it for some time
- You crave more flexible work hours
- It doesn't come from a place of unhappiness
- You have the expertise and confidence
- You have a desire to keep on learning
