Being your own boss or a startup isn’t easy.

Many of these home grown businesses know it takes time to sow the seeds of success. Unfortunately, for those whose efforts pay off, there will be some drawbacks. For instance, personal time will be taking a hit. It most likely already is if you’re doing well. Entrepreneurs or those folks who work from home know the distractions and sacrifices that are made for their business.
