As I thought about what makes a small business successful and long-lasting, the first and foremost idea that came to mind is: Do what you love, and love what you do!
How many people complain that they hate their jobs and loath going off to their daily grind! When we have a small business, we can choose what we do and how we do it, and that makes all the difference in the world.
There’s no denying that hard work is hard work, and we can’t escape the blood, sweat, and tears of the discipline and labor that it takes to create and maintain a small or home business. But at the same time, we can choose to labor over something that is an expression of our own soul, and this adds energy to our endeavors and longevity to our pursuits. This is a picture of Mike gathering dead aspen for our handcrafted products in Rocky Mountain Glow. It’s hard, but we are into it…and that makes all the difference!

Thank you, and happy entrepreneur-ing!
