Small Business Owners Need Spirit and Heart

If you are going to be a successful small business owner you need the spirit of an entrepreneur and the heart of a sole proprietor.  An entrepreneur’s spirit helps you imagine and then create your business.  But it takes the heart of a sole proprietor (not the legal structure, rather the attitude that “I turn the lights on and I turn the lights off”) to stick with your business when you have to attend to the everyday, mundane things like accounting, banking, credit policies, personnel issues, prospecting, etc. 

Spirit and heart, you will need both.
