For me, there are times when running a small business is like taking care of the salt water tank in our sun room. In the beginning, there is some trial and error. Having your fish suddenly go into distress or even die is rather traumatic and you have to learn those lessons the hard way. These are lessons you don’t forget easily because of the money lost and the guilt of killing something so precious.
One things you do learn in this stuation is that bigger is better. The more water you can have in a salt water tank, the less likely a slight rise in the wrong kind of build-up will send the tank into a quick decline. This gives you time to correct the balance and keep your fish healthy. In a small business, if you can plan ahead, you end up with a big tank with lots of water and less chance of a small hiccup bringing you down.
