Being a business owner is the ultimate dream of many people these days. Aside from the independence from the corporate setting it offers, most budding entrepreneurs also think that running their own company will provide them with more time to pursue their personal interests as well as to have more time with their loved ones.

For non-business people, it is often easy to think that business owners always have it easy in life, but in reality, they face the harshest challenges each day.
