Starting my own consulting business has been a long-term career goal of mine. After landing my first graduate accounting position at a mid-tier firm, I knew that I wanted to eventually “be my own boss”. It’s daunting and exciting at the same time. You experience “road blocks” but I guess the most important lesson that I’ve learned [and continue to learn] is that you need to take a step back at each stage of your business [breathe for a moment or two] and revisit your goals and objectives. Revisit your business plan and write down new goals and objectives [as these change as your business grows]. The best advice I can give is “Do not give up”!
