Not long ago I had the opportunity to appear on Lime Radio’s “Be Happy Dammit!” radio program on Sirius. We talked about the trend in Baby Boomers starting businesses — and how it is the path to fulfillment and happiness for some.
Most entrepreneurs will tell you, it’s not about how many hours you spend running your business so much as it is about how you feel working them. If you are in a grind of a job that makes you feel beaten down, 3 hours a day is too much. But if you are building your own business and spending 10 hours a day doing it and loving the challenge, those 10 hours fly by.
Karen Salmansohn, the host, is infectiously upbeat — with a program called “Be Happy Dammit!” you’d have to be upbeat, right?
The interview came about through being part of Federated Media Publishing, which sells ad space for us here at Small Business Trends. Joining us on the interview was Bill Brazell, Director of Author Services for Federated Media.
It was a lot of fun, especially for me since I’m usually doing the interviewing. The interview is about 10 minutes long — go here to listen.
