Why ask? You have to remain real and do what you do when you want to do it... There is no magic pill to get you to your 10th year of successful business operation without the hard work, persistent and consistent effort you have just begun.... And there is no one that can better understand your concerns than you (who knows them as intimately here?). Cautiousness and planning is not a bad thing until you KNOW when YOU CAN take a risk, flyer or chance. I feel your pain, I am also starting a business with TWO kids in college... But you gotta grow at your speed... Keep your heart and mind open while doing your thing and keep your head to the sky... I know, kinda cliche... but hard enough to do while making sure your other responsibilities/committments are met..,.New Father, husband, provider and MULE! (LOL!)
But, that is the job... I wish you well and hope your comfort levels grow as you do... And you will my friend whenever you place yout family`s and clients` well-being before your own... THAT is enough to do as a new father because you have to feed your self as well... Heeyah MULE!!! ROFLM_O Best wishes...
OA - I have a solution and it`s to work with a Business & Career Coach to turn your plan into reality. It`s my specialty, I`ve done it for myself by launching my own coaching business after 20 years of corporate business success and I help my clients launch their ideal new careers/businesses all the time.
