Thanks Hitesh, Jef and Hamish... I only just found your comments, apologies for not responding earlier. The thing about "Fun in Business" as I think about it is that it is all those things, potentially. Because what makes Business Fun for me is potentially entirely different to what makes business Fun for any of you guys, and that's where the passion comes in Hamish... For me, what makes Business Fun, above anything else is when I help small business owners start to feel great about themselves and about their business... When I see someones life change as a result of the work we do together... it makes my heart soar... that bit is much more important to me than making money, although I absolutely need to make money or I can't keep ding what I do and keep doing more and more of it... Cheers roland

As small business owners i think we all have to remember why we jumped into starting our own venture - a passion to do what we do, well. If we lose that passion under the stress of everything else, then you're right, no matter the money, we have lost what got us into the game in the first place. My Mantra- perspective is everything

Great article! It's very interesting that opportunities to expand into other countries seem much more accessible to smaller businesses now that it did just a few years ago.

Very in depth and interesting article, however, I found it a bit hard to digest since there wasn't much visual hierarchy. Next time if you could bold the section headings that would greatly help.

Enjoyed this thoroughly Tracey, especially point 4!
Jef LippiattOwner at Startup Chucktown
Very solid advice. Also, please refrain from assigning "High Priority" to every single email (it negates the importance if over used). Ensure you are only "Replying All" when absolutely necessary, otherwise only "Reply" to the necessary recipient or recipients, others will appreciate you not flooding their inbox. Only add "read receipts" when sending Important Timely documents, no one wants to feel like you are hand-holding or babysitting them to ensure they've read your message.

Great read with some very honest truths.

Agree. A happy, passionate team is a productive team. Company culture is much more powerful than leadership or talent. Great leadership fosters great culture, through hiring and otherwise.
