If one goes into business seeking control, the universe will let them know quickly that control is a magic trick.

It is an illusion.

Being a business owner is not for the faint of heart.  You will face many challenges.

Some positive.

Others negative.

Most are neutral and normal.

I’ve found the most important tools are to celebrate the successes as a team, to learn from the mistakes as an individual and most important to not get bored with the neutral and normal.  Once you make those the most exciting – it then becomes always more fun than frantic.

Don’t ever let your self-esteem be attached to a business card title or a bank account balance.

Enjoy the ride!
