It explained why business ownership is on the rise. Why people would be shifting towards working for oneself.

"4. Stay Focused On Your Dream
There will be many ups and downs no matter what business you decide to start. It's part of the rite of passage of becoming an entrepreneur - taking the good with the bad. And there will be days when nothing goes right and you'll start to debate whether you should pack it in. This is the time where you'll need to work even harder. Some of the most successful companies had to go through years of failure before they got it right. You will have to go through a similar process to discover what works for you. Like these business trailblazers, you will have days full of challenges and failures. But keep in mind they are your challenges and failures, not your employer's. It's how you deal with failure that will determine your ultimate success.". ---John Fleming
