I read a thing recently that suggested entrepreneur success involves a lot of "enlightened trial and error". I thought hmmm....maybe how I'm doing things isn't as wacko as it sometimes seems.
That's very different than a corporate environment and really, its is our edge.....while we don't have the resources to spend a year with committees studying something, conducting marketing focus groups, hiring consultants and so on, being wrong and having an idea fail isn't the careering ending event it can be at a big firm. Makes it a lot easier to innovate.
I definitely agree with that, small shops are agile and have more fluidity to experiment without having to work within the layers of the corporate structure. Every entrepreneur has their own path with unique circumstances so it's less formulaic and hard to replicate. That's why I enjoy reading about different owners experiences, the good and the bad. Some hit it out of the park on the first swing, others slowly grind it out not knowing if or when they'll take flight.
