Family Planning Natural Part of Entrepreneurship

This article from The Daily Camera stresses the need to discuss with and prepare family members for the rigors as well as the potential rewards of the entrepreneurial journey. This is necessary in view of the pressure that comes with the responsibility of owning a business.

“With this kind of pressure on you, the owner, don't be surprised if the stress permeates everything you do. Don't be surprised if questions arise in your mind right in the middle of a social gathering, a tennis match or watching your child's soccer game. The problem is that the stress of this relationship with your business doesn't go away.

And you'd better figure out a way to handle it. Having that far away look in your eyes when you're at a family gathering is not going to contribute to your being a family participant. If you think this is likely to affect the family plan for togetherness, think again about entrepreneurship.”
