Lessons from a lifetime of entrepreneurship
For those seeking the truth about owning your own business.
Owning your own business and being your own boss has become the definition of the American Dream. But, as with any dream, reality doesn’t always match expectations.
Those who have this dream will spend hours and hours reading and researching how they can start their own business and be their own boss.
Unfortunately, the majority of the YouTube videos, webinars, articles and podcasts about starting and running your own business are written by someone who has never actually owned their own business. They are usually consultants, advisors, strategists, etc.
Been there, done that.
If you want to start your own business or you already own your own business, the best advice will come from those who have been in your shoes and experienced the joys and struggles of business ownership first hand.
To be clear, I am not talking about someone wanting to build their personal brand and become an ‘influencer’. Yes, at some point, those people may actually create a business that is beyond themselves and their personality. But, most will not.
I am talking about someone who wants to start, grow and maintain a business whether that is to sell a product or to deliver a service.
