Five years ago, a friend who was thinking of becoming his own boss, asked for some advice. Immediately I rattled off a long list of dos and don'ts.
At that time, I seemed to have a very clear idea of what make a business work. Our industry was booming, providing us with lots of opportunities to make money. Too many people jumped on the bandwagon, so much so that it is now very competitive. These days, I let my capable staff run the business while I explore other opportunities. I can't just sit around and watch the market getting saturated.
Sadly I find myself getting excited over ideas that were once in my 'DO NOT do' list. Have I lost my acumen or am I suffering from tunnel vision?
It's so easy to give others sound advice yet I can't see for myself. Honestly, I have never felt so discouraged.
