Business owners are the happiest workers in America, according to Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index poll data collected from January to August. Transportation and manufacturing workers have the lowest overall well-being.

The three occupations with the highest levels of well-being are those with the highest household income.


So, contrary to the popular proverb, money can and does bring you happiness. No wonder Richard Branson is always smiling.

Which one? He's got several, you know... Smile

eg.
Necker Island, British Virgin Islands
Kasbah Tamadot, Morocco
Ulusaba Private Game Lodge, South Africa

He also owns land in Antigua and Barbuda.

I'm not sure it's money that brings happiness, just the knowledge that you are doing it for yourself and the taxman, not having 20 people above you taking a cut from your hard work. Still being yuletide I might give myself a day off, but when you have a scrooge for a boss who knows.
Happy Yuletide folks

My idea of working for myself doesn't put the tax man even in the field of vision. When the tax is due, I will pay only what I have to, and that is all. To me taxes are after the net profit. How much did I make? What was my cash flow? Did I like it? Was it worth it? I don't have any socialist agenda. That's my profit and I am going to keep all that I can, or even spend it.

Hi Folks,
An old saying my Dad taught me, 'You will never get rich working for someone else' which is a truism, also I have found that working for myself I try and do the best I can and went that extra mile, working for others (as a contractor) I did what they asked me and was penalised if I went outside the objective.
Now I smile happily, work a good 60hrs a week but can work Saturday and go shopping on a Tuesday no problem

Yeah i agree! Cause if you are business owner, you can handle your time unlike common employee that they must do whatever they boss want.
however, Business owner has a big responsibilities cause they need to have a perfect plan to avoid bankruptcy

That's not surprising. I became happy the day I decided to set up my own business. I advise it to nearly anyone.
