Keep a journal

For those of you that don’t know, I am in the process of writing a book on how married couples run a business together. I am in the process of interviewing people for my book and I just had to share what a cool interview I had today – and a good tip for business owners. My interviewee shared with me today that he has kept a journal, and still does, since he started his business. For the last seven years he has noted the ups and downs. He refers to it when he gets frustrated to remind himself how far he has come. His grandfather also had one and he mentioned how remarkable the similarities are from 1945 compared to now. 

It has inspired me to do the same. I am already seven years in, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start now. I challenge you to do the same.
