Nowadays many people choose to be self-employed, rather than to work for a company or organisation. Why might this be the case? What could be the disadvantages of being self-employed?

There is no doubt that adolescence can be a difficult period for both youngsters and their parents.
Although
some people believe that conflict at
this
time does more harm than good, I would argue
otherwise
, the reason being it would play an essential role in turning them into mature. At present, the majority of millennials'' are preferring to be self-employed than being employed in an organization.
This
can be mainly attributed to peer pressure.
For instance
, the employees' skillset is being judged based on the performance of their co-employees.
In addition
to that, they feel their stern hard work goes unnoticed which in turn leads to job dissatisfaction. These are the major reasons that instigate them to be their own employer. Even though they opt to be self-employed there are certain drawbacks associated with it.
Firstly
, the skill level of the employee will not be up to the market standard.
This
is because, when they kick off their careers as untrained professionals, it invariably affects their productivity in the long run.
For example
, If a blunder is made and unfortunately they aren't equipped enough to handle it,
then
the whole outcome will result in a disaster and their confidence takes a dent.
Secondly
, they are not exposed to the professional work culture that a company would provide.
As a result
, work-life balance will take a hit which can easily affect their personal life.
For instance
, employers' have prefixed job timings between 9 PM to 5 PM, which comfortably allows the employees' to take care of their personal lives after the working session. In conclusion, people feel less burdened when they turn out to be their own employer, and
also
when
such
a thing happens
then
there are major potholes that employees would encounter.
