I found this quote as I was reading an old copy of Better Homes and Gardens. It struck a chord with me, so I decided to make it my Labor Day post.
“…there’s no ‘perfect’ day when you own a small business. It’s like running a marathon that never ends.”
—Sophie LaMontagne, co-owner of Georgetown Cupcake in Washington, D.C.
(May 2011, Better Homes and Gardens, page 132)
While most small business owners, work-from-home entrepreneurs, and freelancers don’t generally get to take off work on holidays like today, I’ve chosen to take it easy with my family. However you choose to spend the day, try to keep your main business goals in mind (even if it’s in the back of your mind)—running that small business marathon that never ends.
