Being Your Own Boss

Being Your Own BossBeing your own boss isn’t all it’s cracked up to be especially when you still have to go in when you’re sick or your kids are sick. That’s happened to me more times than I can count and although I always take care of things working for yourself is really stressful on my life. I opened this place about two years ago and business is good, although to know the exact numbers I’d have to ask my wife. She’s in charge of the books and she does stuff like go to and talk to lenders because I’m more of a people person than a numbers guy at the end of the day. We make a great team but it’s tough since we’re the only two employees and sometimes there’s more to get done than we’ve got time for! I like having my own say though, and it’s nice to think that one day we could vacation without having to ask permission but at this rate we’re a long way away from that point!
