I thought this was going to be a lame article with three superfluous things, but they are all right-on. In this article, 3 family benefits to owning your own business, the author says the three things are:
- Building family unity.
- Sharing life skills and passions.
- Leaving a legacy of learning.
I agree with all of these things…. check out the full article here.
In the comments, Saffron shares the other side of staring your own business. She says that it’s not all roses and peaches… it’s freaking hard. Yes, it is definitely hard. The rewards can be awesome, but it’s really, really hard work. I can attest to that. Patience and sacrifice is a constant as you build your business. There are so many things (decisions, trials, setbacks, etc.) that make you want to run and get a normal day job… but you have to remember, what does the day job provide you? Security? Fair pay? Great benefits? Maybe so, but it’s not always the case….
What a crazy world we live in…
