Stephen is a one-person shop, and proud of it. His goals are not to grow, not to expand, but not because he can’t. Honestly, he turns a large percentage of work away. And although it might sound strange to some, growth is not what he is after.
His goal is to build a lifestyle company, one that covers his bills, keeps him interested in his daily work, and lets him spend ample time with his family.
One day he may decide to expand, but for now, he is happy where he is.
Follow along as we talk about what it takes to make the jump into working for yourself, the importance of community to keep you positive, why growth is not always the end goal, and much more.
