For me, the difference between running my own business and running someone else’s is the same as the difference between worrying and caring.
- Worrying/caring about the 8,793rd order as much as I cared/worried about the 1st.
- Caring/worrying enough to do it right, even though no-one will ever know different.
- Worrying/caring about your customers, and whether they are getting what they need, and what you promised.
- Caring/worrying that this business will still be here next year, not because it pays the bills, but because you believe that what it does matters.
Back then I worried.
Now I care…
