Running a small business really requires you to be a jack of all trades. For me that means not only being a seamstress, but also an accountant, photographer, marketer, pattern maker, inventory controller and shipper too.
This is where my background in business prior to starting my own business really helped a lot! I look back on it now and can clearly see how it gave me all the tools I needed to run my own business. Now the thought of working for someone else sends shivers down my spine, LOL. I guess I'm either a control freak or want the freedom to do what I want, when I want...and to NEVER hear an alarm clock go off again :)
