I’ve spent quite a bit of time this morning chatting on IM with Yaro from Entrepreneur’s Journey. Yaro submitted posts during the 31 Day project and caught my attention with a coupe of his posts and by the fact that he’s a fellow Aussie.
Wandering through his blog has been a rich experience – worth a read is his Business Timeline (you’ll need some time – it’s long) as well as a post titled Do You Want to Run Your Own Business? which gives a good realistic indication on what it can be like for someone getting into small business. He makes points in this last post on:
1. Say good bye to a reliable and predictable income.
2. Your business is your life.
3. You may never make real money until you sell your business.
4. There is no superannuation, paid leave or sick leave.
I’d say for me all of his points ring true – perhaps except for point 3 at this stage of my business.
Anyway – check out Yaro’s stuff – he’s an inspiring guy.
