I love watching the gold mining shows on TV. Gold Rush and Bering Sea Gold on Discovery. Bamazon on History.
The idea of a bunch of out of work guys throwing caution to the wind and risking it all to strike it rich makes for a great story. I find myself watching intently and cheering them on each week. I’ve even had some quick conversations with a few of the guys via Twitter. I really do hope they all hit the jackpot.
When you work for a company and you take vacation it’s usually not a big deal. The company is prepared for you to be away and has contingencies in place to cover you during your absence.
When you work for yourself it’s a bit of a different story.
I read a quote on Twitter last night that really struck a chord with me.
“Run your business like you are the best at what you do!” Terry Daniel (@voiceoversbytd)
If you run a small business and have a web site you need to read this book. I downloaded it from the Kindle Store and read it in a night. So much great advice!
