14 Signs You Might be a Small Business Owner

You might be a small business owner if*:

  • you’re on a first name basis with the drive-thru coffee shop baristas.

  • your inbox has 100+ unopened emails, and over 10,000 undeleted.

  • out-of-town vacations include a trade show

  • stay-at home vacations involve organizing files, deleting emails, rehabbing your website and re-merchandising your store.

  • if you’re on ET, you get irked mornings when you want to call a west coast vendor and you get irked evenings when a west coast vendor calls you (just swap irks if you are on PT).

  • Super Bowl Sunday is your annual visit with friends and family and you watched the World Cup from your office (only because the U.S. might win).

  • you’ve never met the businesses more than 1 storefront away from your location.

  • you don’t want anything to do with social media.

  • your home office extends into the living and/or dining room.

  • family visits occur at your place of business.

  • your friends and relatives don’t want any more of your product for birthday and Christmas presents.

  • bartering is your first choice of payment.

  • you are never without a SmartPhone or tablet, and…

  • dressing up means a freshly cleaned and ironed, branded polo (your brand).
