As SBOs, we may be done for the morning or the day or even the week, but we’re never really done.
I had a partner once in the Caribbean who believed that once the shelves were stocked, the ads placed and the doors open, the job was over. (Obviously, I had made a bad choice.) The business failed because she failed to understand that each and every day we had to keep looking for new ways to trim expenses, ratchet up profits, make connections, open new markets, learn something new about technology, find new ways to stay in business and keep ahead of the competition.
My point: We’re never done. If we ever think “we’re done,” well, then we really are. As for the rest of us, we’ll step over you or around you, because we have things to do. Successful SBOs don’t think in terms of “done,” but in terms of “what’s next?” So, work hard. Make money. Have fun. Take a break in the next life. — jri
