1. Great points all. I would add a few. Being your own boss in small definitely has its advantages but you have to be willing to work without a net. When things are good you feel like you are on top on the world. When they take a turn for the worse, it can get very lonely. It is a constant balancing act to service your existing clients while continually searching for new ones. Even when times are good you need to be out there pitching. Losing your biggest client may be only a phone call away and it can happen even if you are doing a great job for them. Leadership changes, budget cuts, mergers and acquisitions all can affect your situation. Unlike pro sports, there are no guaranteed contracts in our business! That said, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
