Summary

In this chapter, you took a moment to calculate the benefits and costs of leaving your current job and becoming your own employer. By objectively calculating the cost of regular employment, you have a list of realistic, actual costs you are currently incurring. By comparing these against the costs you will now need to assume as you start your home business, you will gain a realistic sense of the financial advantages and disadvantages when you compare the two situations.

As you learned in this chapter, however, assessing the risks is a bit more difficult. How much did risk impact your employment? It's tough to calculate that, particularly if you were “almost” laid off or “nearly” part of a merger. Likewise, business risks aren't always easy to pin down. Putting a price tag on months and months of worry over what “almost” happened can be tough to do as well.
