5 Lessons Learned in 5 Years as an Entrepreneur
By Amanda Barna
For me, being an entrepreneur all started in a supply
closet. Weird, I know, but true. I was organizing a supply closet as
part of my new corporate job when my former colleague and close friend
Michelle called me and asked me if I would be interested in starting a
new company with her. After a great deal of laughter (at Michelle) and
answering concerns (from my family), Michelle and I both quit our
stable jobs and started CMOR. And what a ride it has been.
The past five years
have been full of excitement, uncertainty, opportunities, and lots and
lots of learning. I can honestly say that I have learned more in the
past five years than in any other time period in my life, even college.
Given that CMOR has just celebrated our 5-year anniversary, I thought this
would be a good time to reflect on the top 5 things that I have learned
in my five years of being an entrepreneur.
