“The biggest challenge I have had to overcome has been developing skills and expertise in very distinct and different areas of the business to keep costs down,”
“For example, I’ve had to handle website development, operations, advertising, sales and accounting/bookkeeping.”
“Having to take over all areas of the business has been a tough but necessary part of the business to ensure I can make it through the initial tough months of the business where revenue is low and hard to come by.”
