It’s not the glorious thing people say it is, but it’s not a bad way to do things. Owning your own business.

Started a company to help brother, his family and my mom out and to keep a mortgage going. It’s doable. I’m INFP. If something seems hard, find an easier way. There’s always an easier way in business. Give the big guys what they want (taxes, license, whatever) but don’t drive yourself nuts over it either; it’s just paperwork.

Be honest as you can be in advertising, but know you have to use a little hyperbole (exaggeration). I try not to use too much though. The temptation is strong but I just can’t.

13 years now. Always a struggle. You work 16 hour days sometimes, other days, you do nothing but fart around. Is it worth it? Well, you have to be emotionally stable and not let every situation with customers throw you, or every threat get you scared. Always be willing to walk away from a job without hesitation. You can’t save the planet and some people are gamplaying. Most people are decent and reasonable though.

It’s not the glorious thing people say it is, but it’s not a bad way to do things.

I only know the US rules, but I suspect similar things apply elsewhere.
