The issue:

"I am thinking of resigning from my job and setting up my own business. But I am not sure if this is the right decision. Could you give me some idea of what I will be facing?"

The answer:

There are many pros and cons to starting up your own business. On the scary side, you will take on a lot of responsibility and stress, there's pressure to perform and it can be quite an isolating experience.

But on the other hand, you will be your own boss, you will be able to set the hours you work, you can choose to be creative within your business and you can set your own salary, after a while.

Take a look at our section on Being Your Own Boss. You can find out about Getting Started, What it Takes to be Your Own Boss and read a comprehensive Question and Answer section. Good luck!
