Inspired by Emeril on Treme:

Don’t I owe it to myself and to them to build something that’s going to last beyond my interest and ability to sit in a chair finding interesting things for people to look at?

The big conundrum that all us small business owners are asking ourselves: Should we stay small, true to our heart and do the thing we love? Or should I ‘be the ship’ and take on the responsibility to build something that’s larger than me?

I myself go back and forth on this every day. The lonesome cowboy at the helm, like Gruber, is incredibly tempting. But there is something to be said about legacy, and responsibility to our family and the people around us that trust us.
