Being my own boss is
something I always thought I might do but I had no idea how it would
actually come to fruition. I never had a ton of extra cash, and it took
me decades to figure out what I was good at. But look at me now – I own
my own graphic T-shirt company, and I’m actually turning a profit!
had to learn as I go about stuff like bank card processing
and human resources and tax laws – you don’t learn about any of that
stuff when you don’t go to college (and I’m not so sure you learn it in
college, either!) -- but I think I’m pulling my weight and starting to feel
more confident about being a good businessperson. I like having total
control over what I put out there.
I try really hard to
be a good boss. I know how important it is to keep morale high and
people interested in working for you. That’s why I finally struck out
on my own!
