    Hello Everyone,

    I am a fellow small business owner - I work on used laptops as a refurbishing agent.

    I'm also attempting to compile a list of business stories from the perspective of the founder.
    The focus is on struggles and failures that occurred along the way as well as what personality traits helped you succeed.

    Feel free to message me personally or just reply below

    Thanks guys!

    I'm sure many business owners can share numerous stories regarding struggles & failures - your question is so wide open that I can't really pick a single story. I will say that one trait that has served well is "attention to detail." I wish some of my employees would have more of it!

    are you planning on putting these stories into a book? I've been reading a great one by Jessica Livingston called "Founders at Work". If that's what you're going for I hope to read it soon :)

    You should try to contact business owner (Looks impossible but not due to Social media) they will love to share your success and struggling stories. You just need to socialize with them through any means.

    Specific Stories

    Any story that epitomizes a struggle you went through or a part of your personality that allowed you succeed in that specific struggle would be great.

    Thanks
