Like Big Belly said, it's still work. A lot of work.
I've been self-employed my entire adult life and have loved everything I've done, but to say it doesn't feel like work is a stretch. In the end, you probably work even harder, but the difference is how you feel about doing the work since you're doing it for yourself and not just punching a clock and making money for somebody else.
If you're successful, yes, every day feels a lot less like work and more like spending your time doing something you enjoy, even if it is a whole heck of a lot of work. If you're unsuccessful, the tables are turned and because everything falls on your shoulders, the stress can be incredible, and even doing something you love can end up becoming the biggest chore in the world.
Just some food for thought.
