Running a Business is All About Your Ability to Learn – Quickly

Life feels like an endless To Do List at the moment.

Its amazing – when you learn about business the courses really teach you about being able to run a small business. They never tell you that as it gets bigger your job becomes harder and harder and its all about your ability to learn a completely new set of skills at every different size of the business.


Companies Get Harder as they Get Larger (not easier)

It’s funny… when you start a company you think the larger it gets the easier it is going to be – as you’re able to start handing off jobs and deligate your team.

However, no one really explains to you the larger it gets the harder it actually gets.

Yes.. you can hand off those jobs to the other members in your team and they can take complete autonomy over the decision making, but there are all the little things that no one ever talks about – culture, strategy, team structure, heirarchy, wages, policies on pretty much everything from HR to Finance.

Sometimes a lifestyle business in which the owner can have an amazing lifestyle really is the best way to go!


Parenting is By Far the Hardest Job in the World

Parenting is by far the hardest job in the world. It’s something you don’t realise when you don’t have kids, but the constant learning curve with parenting and the sheer relentlessness is unbelievable.

I can’t wait to be a grandparent as that has the best of both worlds. You get to play with your grand kids and then hand them back to their parents when it gets hard.
