If you’re just starting out your business, try to remember this first year because it’s going to fly by in a flash. Sheer excitement and adrenaline will push you through the first few months, and every challenge will simultaneously terrify and thrill you.
But, beware. I’ve counseled thousands of small business owners and have seen that same excitement turn into burnout really fast.

3. Make it part of your job to treat yourself
4. Don’t let that one obstacle ruin your day, month, or year.
