A trait in business which will serve you well
As a business owner for many years, I've had to make a shift in my thinking. I really am pretty conservative and had for years been afraid to take chances. After all, the decisions I had to make would affect my Wife and kids.
The scariest decision I ever made was to start my own business with no guarantee it would succeed. Since then, I continue to make decisions which while they still worry me to make, I know making them is ultimately good for my business.
If you plan on having a business grow, you need to be willing to fail. It's a very useful trait. Not all decisions made will produce positive results but you learn from each one made.
The safest bet isn't to keep the status quo and operate as a one person shop. The best bet is to be willing to take a chance on hiring employees and expanding your business though you don't know for sure that it will work out.
Have faith in what you do and the courage to take a chance. Great things just might come to you.
