Running your own business is a demanding job, but it offers a sense of autonomy that you just can't get working for someone else. Still, how happy are small-business owners? A recent survey from online marketing company Yodle polled over 300 U.S. small-business owners across a variety of industries and found that most are pretty happy (55 percent).

For more on small-business owners' sentiment, including their biggest personal and professional concerns, take a look at the infographic below.
