Owning a business is similar to owning a home. It can be a dream come true, or it can be your worst nightmare! If starting your own business is the right choice for you, it can yield some incredible benefits!
“One of the greatest benefits of having your own business is writing off or depreciating legitimate business expenses. You can write off your phones, equipment and your home office. Check with your tax professional for all of the deductions you can take advantage of.” ~ Stacia Perce, Life Coach, Career Expert, and CEO
I am a former business owner, and although I experienced a good amount of success, I also made a lot of mistakes! As a result, I learned some pretty hard lessons, and gained some wonderful wisdom, insight, and experience, as well. I look forward to becoming a business owner again in the future. But in the meantime, I’m happy working strictly as a consultant.
Today, I’d like to share some of the priceless lessons that I learned as a first-time business owner, in hopes that they will empower you, educate you, and help you avoid many of the mistakes that I made. Here we go!
