Hustling, hypothesizing, risk taking, sacrificing – being a business owner takes all of this and more. The highs are super rewarding, and the lows? Super draining. There’s no mincing words, being a business owner is tough. Have you been toying with the idea of starting a company? Are you asking yourself, “Can I be a business owner?”
Well? Do you have what it takes? (Spoiler alert: You probably already know the answer to that.)
Take our quiz to get some insight.

Not everyone is cut out for owning a business, and that’s okay! We don’t need a bunch of business owners – we need a healthy mix of people who work hard in the roles that they excel at. Do what makes you happy, and work towards YOUR goal. Whatever it may be.
And please, don’t take yourself too seriously, even if you are the boss. Everyone starts somewhere.
