My father, who has owned and operated several small businesses throughout his career. With his knowledge of running a few different types of companies, he was able to mentor me as I worked side by side with him. Because I was working with my dad, I didn’t feel uncomfortable with my early lack of experience. He always reminded me that business is mostly “people
