However unpleasant this may seem it is normal. I am four years into my business venture and almost $100,000 in debt between business and personal expenses. I have sacrificed my good credit inrepparttar name of my business. This year, I am finally making a steady salary of about $1,000 a month (which includes my second job). In any given week, I am still putting off creditors and trying to find ways to borrow from one account to pay off another.

Now back torepparttar 117583 H. Remember that part I mentioned about Happiness? I do believe in it. In fact, I believe in it more now than I did when I first started. I am in debt up to my neck but I have also learned more in four years of running my own business than I EVER learned in school. If I stand at top ofrepparttar 117584 mountain of my business I can see how far I have come. I allow myself moments of pride in my own accomplishments. I also allow myself to make mistakes and more importantly to forgive myself (and others) for them. A trait that is VERY necessary. Every day, I learn through my successes and mistakes how to run my business better and make better decisions. Furthermore, by nature of being an entrepreneur, I have been givenrepparttar 117585 opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs. These people arerepparttar 117586 most incredible, gutsy and talented people I have ever hadrepparttar 117587 pleasure of meeting. I am proud to be a part of this team!

Will my current business succeed inrepparttar 117588 long run? I have no guarantees. I believe it will because I have learned to believe in myself. However, if it doesn’t succeed I will pick myself up, dust off my clothes and get right back on that entrepreneurial horse again!
