Self-employment and entrepreneurship are both more popular than ever, but they’re also shrouded in myth and misunderstanding. If you’re getting ready to take the leap into being your own boss, you need to be able to separate the fiction, like these common myths, from the fact.

If you want to live out your passion, you have to be ready for it to be a job, with all of the ups and downs that every job comes with. You might also think that it will be great to be your own boss, but do you know what kind of boss you’ll be? Will you overwork yourself? Let too many things slip by? If you can be a great boss to yourself, it can be a liberating experience. But you also won’t have the luxury of a nine-to-five schedule or paid time off to fall back on.
