Good morning Lumberjocks. Owning your own business can be stressful sometimes. Specially when you learn new ways or things you should be do in owning your own business. Which in the last two or three months I have learned somethings the hard way. Which I won’t mention those things because I felt dumb enough and I already did different things so those problems won’t happen again. But at least I found out how to do some of these things within the first year of owning my business and not ten years from now. Don’t take this as it’s hard to own your own business. You just need to learn how to do the business end of it along with everthing in the shop to. Because it can be enjoyable at times and then there is times when you wonder why you did it. And if you do it right and are busy enough you can make a livin do it. but those are the times you learn something new and you apply it to what you are doing. But thats how god shows us were doing it wrong and he helps us correct those mistakes to. Because if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be were I am today. So the next time you mess up don’t stress about it take care of the problem and move on. Because it doesn’t pay to get upset and worry about it. Until next week you guys take care and stay safe in the shop.

Isiah 40:31 But those who wait for the lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk, and not faint.

Good reflection on the trials that help us to learn. What advice would you have for people to avoid making similar mistakes?

pray to God if you will, but never stop paddling towards the shore

Experience is a tough teacher as it always gives you the test first and the lesson later.

been there buddy heck still there and its been three years my rule of thumb is to do the right thing always no matter if you lose money or customers your name will stay intact cause people will notice that you do the right thing and it helps knowing that what goes around comes around lol
