 SideHustleNation.com的兼职猎头首席官尼克•罗培的回答是:

The best part of running your business is that it’s one of the most challenging, rewarding and stressful things you’ll ever do. It’s a completely different ball game from relying on someone else for a steady paycheck.

自己经商最大的好处就是你将要做你从没做过的最具挑战性,回报最丰厚和压力最大的事。不依靠别人取得稳定的收入,这完全是另外一回事。

Have you ever worked for 100% commission? That’s what ALL small business owners do, every single day. If they don’t sell anything, they won’t earn anything. It’s scary and exhilarating at the same time.

你曾经的工作有拿过100%的佣金吗?每一天,对小企业主来说是肯定的。如果他们什么都没卖出去,就什么也赚不到。这让他们不仅感到害怕,也感到兴奋。

At any job, there’s a limit to how much you can earn — a salary “ceiling,” if you will. With your own business, you can smash through that ceiling if you make the right moves.

任何工作都有工资限度的,那就是工资瓶颈。经营自己的企业,如果走对了路,你就可以捅破那层天花板。

The downside of course is you lose the floor, too.

当然,你也有可能将本钱都亏进去

I love having the freedom to schedule my days how I see fit, to try out new ideas, and not have a boss to answer to. If that means taking off on a Tuesday to go skiing, awesome. On the flip side, it often means working late into the night and on weekends to take care of an important job or client.

我喜欢按照自己意愿自由的安排我自己的时间,自己尝试着新理念,并且不用向老板汇报。这样我或许还可以星期二出去滑雪呢,多么爽啊。然而,另一方面也可能意味着你要熬夜工作,或者是周末还要处理重要的工作和客户。

For me, the worst part of running a business is a lack of direction. By that I mean there’s no one else telling you what to work on or what tasks to prioritize. Every decision has to be made by you, and it’s stressful.

对我来说,经营自己的企业最痛苦的是没有别人的指导。也就是说,这样就没人告诉你该干什么,或者是先做什么。每一个决定都要自己做,这个压力是挺大的。

The way around that is to build a team of people you trust, either within your company or outside it — preferably both. One thing that’s really helped me recently is a mastermind group of like-minded entrepreneurs, a group to bounce ideas off and hold each other accountable.

解决方法是建立一个你能够信任的团队,公司内部也好,公司外部也好,最好兼而有之。因为这真的很有用,最近,由一个志同道合组成的企业的智囊团帮了我一个大忙。这个团队经常交流想法并且还相互承担责任。
