KERSTEN KLOSS: How do you deal with the peaks and valleys of being an entrepreneur? It’s like a pendulum. You’re pushing to drive business, and then you’ve got to execute…
STEPHEN KEY: You’re always going to have the highs and lows, so you have to be prepared for it. I’ve learned to walk away from it when it gets to be very difficult. I just come back to it the next day. The best thing to do is take a break. You need to regroup sometimes, because you’re going to hit a lot of walls. Just love what you do. Be persistent. Have a long-term vision of where you want to be in six months or a year. Keep focused on that vision, and you’ll get there. Do it one step at a time, one bite at a time and you’ll get there.
CHRIS HAMILTON: You do need to have a vision. You do need to have a plan in order to move forward. I agree. Step back for a bit. Take it easy. Take a breath. Things always seem to work out in the end, anyway. At least that’s what I find. Hopefully. I say that today. Ask me tomorrow. It might be different.
