Small Business Owner / Operator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Small Business Owner / Operator?

Small Business Owner / Operator in Statesboro:
`"$Work Flexibility and conditions."`
Pros: I like that owning my own business gives me that particular flexibility that I need or seek after. In my particular field the stress levels are extremely low but can be present from time to time. The work conditions are great and you can work, at times in your own pace; with little to no assistance.
Cons: There's really nothing bad about this job, other than when a customer cancel a order about 30 minutes prior to pick up time or is a no show.
