I’ve been a business owner for 10 years, but I feel like I’ve been an entrepreneur all of my life. Several months ago, like many of my fellow small business owners, I was just trying to understand how to survive from one payroll period to the next. Surviving is not a way to run a business and I sat back and really considered pulling the plug because I just wasn’t having fun anymore. Soon after, I decided that I didn’t know how to not be an entrepreneur anymore and chose to succeed, not just survive. As the saying goes, I threw my hat over the wall with no idea how to get it.
