Do you have what it takes to be a Small Business Owner?

allHere is the prime condition of success: Concentrate your energy, thought and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun on one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.  – Andrew Carnegie

The thing is with running a business is that it is about natural instincts, financial capability and energy, yes, energy because your business will need you 24/7.

As I observed small business owners and as others in my field did as well, we all agreed on one thing …

the key to success in business is the business becoming key.

Your business becomes the relationships you have, the hobby you enjoy, the dinners you attend, the network you connect with, your bank account, your car, your laptop, your everything … it becomes key to and in everything, and that’s what it takes and nothing short of it.

So are you a small business owner?
