Starting a small business is one of the most challenging and rewarding career paths to chose. When Walker and I started visicswire a couple years ago, we knew what we were getting into. We expected to work more than 9-5 M-F; we expected to not see any immediate returns. We decided to put our energy in the future of the company, the future of our careers and the future of this very central part of our lives.
Our investments are paying off. This year we were able to hire a couple people to work with us, to move our office downtown into the Loop, and to pay ourselves a little bit better. Our careers and skills continue to improve as time marches on, but sometimes, just like when we started visicswire, I feel we can just work too much.
