Small business owners love keeping up that calm, cool, and collected exterior—but we know better. These are just a few of the headaches, anxieties, and confessions we know you’ll never let slip.
Got this one here.
As much as we might like to claim that “I meant for that happen,” most small business owners don’t enter the fray with a foolproof business plan. We get blindsided by market upheaval and unexpected loss—just like anyone else.
On rough days, sometimes one nasty review is all it takes to make us lose sight of the big picture.
Nothing gets our engines fired up like a healthy rivalry.
Some days, you’re going to feel like your only cheerleader. You’re going to second-guess every decision you make that day. But don’t worry: it’s all par for the course!
Running a business means operating outside your comfort zone on a daily basis—while reassuring the outside world that everything’s under control.
We might plan our hearts out, but sometimes it takes that little bit of lightning to make plans come together.
It takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to juggle day-to-day business operations, marketing, payroll, customer care, and all the other hats we wear in a day.
All the highs, lows, risk, and uncertainty are what let us know we’re on the right track. There’s never a dull moment when running your own business—and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
