Here’s the thing about being in your own business: You get to choose.

You get to choose your clients.

You ge to choose the work you do.

You get to choose your work schedule.

You get to choose your employees, who become your coworkers, maybe even your friends.

You get to choose your partners, though I can’t say that I would recommend it. Partners, I mean. Messy.

Sometimes the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence. Maybe I should go to work larger firm. I could be less difficult. Less expensive. Less stressful.

But I always come back to my senses.

When I remember that I won’t get to choose anymore.
