HERE ARE A FEW VALUABLE LESSONS I LEARNED LAST YEAR AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER.
When I set out to start my own business (which is a crazy story in and of itself—I'll tell you about it another day), I expected many things.
I expected it to be hard, stressful, and to have crazy ups and downs. Having spent fifteen years inside of a small family-owned business, I was familiar with the realities of business ownership. What I didn’t expect was how absolutely fulfilling and life-giving it can be to hew from solid granite a living, breathing entity comprised of dreams, desires, personality, and the beauty of a team working together to achieve a common goal.
