I was quoted in a few paragraphs, and this is one of my favorite reasons for owning my own business…
What’s your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment so far has to be the freedom of owning my own business. As a mom, I can’t imagine a life where I have to ask a boss if I can leave because one of my babies needs to be picked up from school or for a day off if one of them has a special event they want me to attend. The freedom to make my own hours that fits my family’s schedule is one of the greatest blessings.
What’s one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
To be honest, running your own business is hard. In the beginning, you do really need to reach out to business coaches and mentors to make sure you are starting off on the right path. It can be lonely, and often there isn’t anywhere to turn for answers. Building a community around you, with others in the same industry, really is so important to help you grow and thrive.
What are the top tips you’d give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Three tips I’d give a new business owner:
Know your numbers and run your cost of doing business from day one.
Hire a bookkeeper and tax advisor to guide you on the right path for your business growth.
Give it time. This is a marathon, not a sprint, and there will be lots of ups and downs along the way. Don’t quit. Just recognize what isn’t working, change that, and try again!
Thanks for stopping by & sending lots of love!
