Have you ever had a week when all of those old sayings apply to your life? Let me give you a few. If there is an emergency on a plane, put your mask on first. You can lead a horse to the well, but you can’t make it drink. Don’t take any wooden nickels (that’s my mom’s favorite). Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. Patience is a virtue (I once had to write that 50 times during my junior year of high school). I could go on and on. You get the point.
Some days are more of a challenge than others, especially for small business owners. But, you can’t complain. You have to keep smiling and as the kids say, “keep it moving.” You have to often think outside of the box to come up with a viable solution. Entrepreneurs, remember, things may not happen right away, but they will happen. Just don’t give up.
A friend had to recently remind me – remember what you know. I have shared that piece of advice with others. Going back to the basics may help you through those ups and downs of daily business decisions. And, those old sayings just may help get you through as well.
