6 Things Losing My Dad Taught Me About My Business

Today I’m going personal. I’m still talking about business ownership, but not about websites specifically.

This Friday, November 15th, marks the 2 year anniversary of my Dad’s passing, and that experience taught me some very important things about how I run my business.

We lost my Dad quite suddenly in 2017, less than a month after his Stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. It was on one of those days in the hospital cancer ward, probably a couple weeks after his diagnosis, that I pulled out a notebook and wrote down a bullet point list of the 6 things I’m going to share with you today.

I remember at the time having absolutely no idea why I was writing those notes down, but it poured out of me so quickly that I knew I didn’t want to forget the lessons.
