Dear Friend and Fellow Business Owner,
Do you remember why you went into business for yourself?
Was it to make a lot of money?
Or was it to be your own boss - to chart your own course - to have a little more "free time".
The brutal reality of most small businesses is you feel like a slave to your business, there's very little family time, the business consumes your mind 24/7, you feel like a job instead of a business, and your day is consumed putting out "brush-fires".
I know how you feel. That was me in 1997.
I've always loved to travel, but I couldn't go on vacation without spending much of the time on the phone with customers and employees back home.
