* 46% of owners started a small business to have more flexibility with their time or to be more independent. Just 19% cited making more money as their main reason.

* 61% would still choose independence over working for someone else -– even for more money than they make now.

* 64% of owners agree it's riskier to run a business than to work for a large company.
