While building own business, one can forget to leave their house and breathe fresh air.
There is certainly self-management practice and routine needed.
Sometimes it feels like being in military, but that is what I like about it.

This might seem absurdic to compare, but having a child would be huge responsibility.
You know, a single mistake and your child may be seriously wounded.
Running a company is probably similar.

I believe it'd be a great motivation for me.
I don't want to have kids at this time.
And I wouldn't like to have kids unless I would be established and developed myself.

Somehow what you wrote reminds me of Japanese Hokku or Haikai. It could be a poem of running a business.

being comfortable with 9-5 job is imo one of the biggest traps of moder lifestyle. if you settle with it for more than 6-7 years, you're flushing your future and time down the drain.

I was working 9-5 for almost 10 years and last year i started my own IM business, so i'm not agree with you, it's all about personal goals, person ambitions and willpower. I spend this 10 years accumulating experience in different positions (seo manager, product manager, designer, developer, product owner, producer etc) which gives me a lot of knowledges and understanding how things works and how to manage people.

Don't mislead yourself, running a business can bring you even in bigger dip than working as employee. It all depends. To be successful in this field you need to be flexible, fast learning and just a bit of lucky. And as you said networking is must. Still you're young enough to make mistakes and learn so wish you luck in this journey.

P.S: IMHO having a child is harder than running a business, i have one and it's much more headache compare to my daily routine
