When I was in my early twenties, I had a conversation with my father that I’m not proud of. The exact details of the conversation escape me, but I remember this sentence coming out of my mouth, “Running a business is easy. It’s common sense! Make more money than you spend.” I was wrong and I was right. You should make more money than you spend, but running a business is not easy. I had so much to learn and I didn’t know it. Fortunately, I didn’t let my ego get in the way of learning.
