Do you have your own small business yet? If not, why not?
Is it too complicated?
Company or sole prop? VAT, PAYE, UIF, SDL what are these? Where do I register? How do I register? What licenses do I need? Its enough to make your head spin.
Is it too risky?
Being in a job as an employee is much safer. There is no way I can risk everything on a startup. I have a family to think of.
Is too much time required?
I don't have the time to start and run a business. In any case I'm not interested in trying to do everything, I only want to do what I am good at.
