The true entrepreneurial success works on his business, and not in it, as Jon Symons has come to realize:
Financially the whole mess is actually doing fairly well, but what I’ve been experiencing is a growing discontent. The feeling is familiar; it’s the feeling of being lost: lost in details. Before becoming a computer programmer, I owned a woodworking business for 11 years…11 years of being lost in the details.
What I want is a real business. A business that I can be proud of, that makes money, and one that can afford to hire people who are smarter than me to do the technician jobs and give me time to work on the business rather than get lost in the details.
