      You’re not a small business owner. More than one of my friends that are have related a story about the unexpected pleasant surprise of receiving full or partial payment from a customer that they had written off as uncollectable. Also at least one who lost sleep over the bank loan that was coming due, and the collateral was the equity in his house (in addition to sleep, he also eventually lost the house).

      I am usually impressed by people willing to take on the risks of a small business and make a go of it.Report

        Yeah. Yesterday Jaybird asked me if I ever think of successful small business owners in the construction trades as the “elite”, and this is a big part of why I answered, “Yes.”Report
