People who start their own business have control over what they do in their working life. By managing their own business, they have the opportunity to shape their work environment and make an impact on their community. But often there will be resistance, especially if a new business idea is introduced. Therefore, one needs management skills to make the business successful as well as to convince the community that it can only help them, or at least can do them no harm.
A good manager is a planner, a person who has vision, sets goals for achieving that vision and ensures that the necessary resources, financial and human, are obtained and allocated in time.
