Define business. Do you mean a card shop? A plumbing business? security service? Elder care provider?

If you are a masochist, Yes

If you have a life, No

If you are unemployable, Yes

If you are prone to illness, No

If you are hyper-competitive, Yes

If you are kind to everyone, No

If you always know your liquidity, Yes

If you have a vague idea as to your net worth, No

If people have accused you of flirting in the past, Yes

If you retain depressive groupies who vent, No

Most people don't open a business as much as they buy themselves a job, and it's usually a horrible job that doesn't pay them much money.

A lot of it depends on your business cycle and who your customers are. The most frustrating thing is dealing with companies and getting them to pay POs on time. This is especially bad at quarter end when everyone is trying to make their books look good.

When things went south in the economy, my company beat the hell out of our little suppliers, so there is that too -- you don't have a boss, but you are at the mercy of your clients.

You have to accept that you have to live your business. After 30 years running my real estate company that is all I can say. You live your business.
