Growing up, I never thought of myself as the type of person who would start a business. My father was a business professor, but none of my relatives did anything entrepreneurial. As an adult, I have found myself incredibly drawn to the freedom and creativity of working for myself.
In my early 20’s, I recorded my first album. I found myself with a business, even though I hadn’t planned it that way! I had to find people who would want to listen to my music, and I was dreadfully unprepared to be running a business.
Fast forward a little over a decade, and I find myself beginning a career as a author. I have soaked up as much business knowledge as I can over the last few years, and have experimented quite a bit. Business is all about personal growth, and so is life. As a result, I have found starting and running a business to be one of the greatest things I have ever done for myself on a personal level.
