Pros and cons of small business

Having owned my own graphic design practice (in all forms from freelancer to design firm partner to corporate subcontractor to boutique to self-publishing house) the best part of owning my own business is making fast decisions. To see what red tape others must go through to get anything done seems quite wasteful and time-consuming! A small business is a little speedboat and a large business is an oceanliner.
On the con side, it has to be cash-flow. It seems that any service-based business ebbs and flows, fluctuating from feast to famine and back again. Regulating finances is a major challenge!
