ABSTRACT
Generally, entrepreneurs receive less actual financial gain from their enterprises, than businesses in the non-entrepreneur sector. However, the majority of entrepreneurs feel that they enjoy an above average level of non-monetary advantage. According to survey results, one of the major non-financial advantages of entrepreneurship is the operation of their own business without interference from outside influences. Working in a self-employed capacity, entrepreneurs acquire a better all-around set of social skills, due to the necessity of dealing with every demand of their business, including interaction with other people, rather than just a specified portion of workday tasks. It is speculated this may positively affect family life and marriage for entrepreneurs. Being a successful entrepreneur seems directly related to the individual’s level of personal optimism. While the entrepreneur may be tempted by deals that offer an extremely profitable return, they are more concerned with remaining in a position of authority within their business scope.
