I used to be a bartender at a Shangri-La hotel. I worked there for years and had a bread business on the side called Wellington Bread where I would make fresh baked bread in my kitchen. If you’ve ever made bread before you know it has to rise for about four hours before baking. So I would get up at four in the morning to prepare the bread. I had to put it into my laundry room because it was the only room in the house humid enough to get the dough to that perfect temperature.
The business was fine, but it wasn’t really scalable and it was incredibly hard working long hours. So, in the summer of 2014 I took off and did what most people do when they’re trying to figure out what to do with their lives - I went on a backpacking trip.
You’ve worked hard to build your business, you should own 100% of it.
