“Your workday must include a chunk of “me” time.
… Start spending all your “free” time thinking about how you’ll make money. …
You spend time personalizing your office.
… you’ll be too busy chasing customers to worry about whether your office aligns with your personal brand.
You don’t empty your own trash, even when you’re headed that way.
… Entrepreneurs, especially early on, don’t wear several hats—they wear every hat. …
You feel you could be a lot more productive if you just had that new…
… I’ve never heard an entrepreneur say, ‘Jeez, we were really struggling to make a profit until I bought the new iPad—then our revenues took off!’ ..
You’re still mad your department got shorted during the last budget cycle.
… If you hate struggling with limited resources … you’ll also hate running your own business when you realize bootstrap is a verb.
You discuss work-life balance issues with passion and intelligence.
… ‘Work’ will eat ‘life’ for breakfast.
You’ve ever said, even once, “I’ve paid my dues.”
… You pay your dues when customers pay you.”
