As I celebrate my 17th year of being self-employed, I share 7 key lessons I learned as an entrepreneur.  Starting my own business has been the most challenging and rewarding assignment of my professional life.  If I could travel back in Mr. Peabody’s Way Back Machine and give myself some advice, these are the 7 things I would tell myself.  We discuss product development, investment, hiring strategies and building your business so it is easy to sell.  But most of all, it has to start with your needs and your vision as an entrepreneur.
