Your Business 365

When I was younger, I was a competitive figure skater. Between skates, blades, and costumes, I was always at Paul Tosone’s skate shop. Paul was a former pairs skater-turned coach who then decided to start his own business. He became a skating blade sharpener, sold boots, repaired equipment—you name it. The man was like a machine. I used to watch him sharpen a pair of skates while wearing his own skates, jump on the ice and teach a lesson, then come back in and fit someone into boots. He ran seven days a week, nearly 365 days a year at this pace. One day, while I was watching him sharpen my skates, Paul looked up at me and said, "Owning your own business is a bitch. Don't start one."

Recently, I was invited to be a guest speaker for a webinar series about how to start a business in the travel industry. The moderator began our conversation by saying, “Anbritt, let’s not have you talk about the scary-scary, ok?” He was referring to some of the problems I’ve been through during my thirteen and a half years as a business owner.
