Entrepreneurs and the Hazards of Independence

By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

Happy Independence Day! Entrepreneurs are blessed with a wonderfully independent, can-do spirit, which deserves to be celebrated. But sometimes, that independent streak can cross over into just plan stubbornness, or controlling behavior.

So my interest was piqued by Jeremy Fain’€™s post, 2 Entrepreneurial Worst Practices. He points out two “€œworst practices” that get in the way of business growth:

1. Doing your bookkeeping and legal work on your own (okay, so that one is near to my heart), and 2. Not committing full-time (in other words, having outside employment as well).

What do you think? In the meantime, I’ll be toasting (not toasted) your independence! 🙂
