That’s how you grow. Pain nour­ishes your courage. You have to fail in or­der to prac­tice be­ing brave.’ As a busi­ness owner, it’s im­por­tant to know that any­thing can hap­pen; you have to roll with punches and ac­cept that your busi­ness may not be your ini­tial vi­sion – and that’s OK.” Year Started: 2001 Mile­stone: “Ev­ery year is a mile­stone year for me.
