I was reading an article by Tim Berry, founder of Bplans.com, a site that helps entrepreneurs develop business plans. The article is called, "3 Steps to the Startup Sweetspot," and it highlights the ways in which start-up companies get to the magic point of where the investments in their business start to pay off. While reading, I realized his advice can be easily applied to our businesses-of-one. Every time we choose to embark on a new career path, we go into "start-up mode" - where decisions on how we choose to invest in the career will affect the results we get.
