Five Thoughts on Running my Own Business


  1. Everything takes at least three times as long as you think it is going to. It does not matter if it is finding the right space, getting insurance, or getting a website done.  If your gut tells you, “this should only take a few weeks”, plan on 2-3 months.
  2. Nobody cares as much as you do.
  3.  Surround yourself with like minded individuals who are on board with what you are trying to do. 
  4. Be open for advice, but if you have been successful and have a steady, loyal cliental that continues to grow, don’t let anybody tell you that you are doing things the wrong way. 
  5. In addition, be weary of taking advice from those individuals who have never made a living training people.  Experience is the best teacher and if you have no experience, in my opinion, you have no say.
