Are You a Rebounder or a Wallower?
Radio host Jim Blasingame of Small Business Radio invited me on his show to discuss some of the lessons in Rebounders for small-business owners. During the first segment, we talked about how to tell if it's time to walk away from a business or other idea that isn't working--one of the most difficult challenges a small-business owner can ever face. During the second segment, we discussed optimism and why it can be dangerous if you believe that things will automatically work out. Jim is a passionate champion of small business who conducted a lively and intelligent interview. One observation of his that I particularly enjoyed:
In small business, a wallower is known as an employee. Or unemployed. There's no crying in baseball and there's no whining in small business.
