Entrepreneurs Unite!

My friends at BizLaunch recently asked some of their entrepreneurs to complete a short questionnaire about their own business and offer small business advice to their network. I've included an excerpt from my interview. You can read it in its entirety by following the links to the BizLaunch blog where you will find a collection of advice and information from Canadian small business entrepreneurs.

You know, you can't please all the people all the time... and last night, all those people were at my show.
- Mitch Hedberg

Mitch Hedberd was my favorite comedian. He died late in the evening on March 29, 2005. Due to stage fright and anxiety, he often performed with his glasses on, head down, hair in his face, and sometimes closed his eyes as not to make eye contact. Mitch was known for pointing out when he didn't deliver a joke right and often nodded his head saying "all right." It was often quite funny when he didn't get the reaction he expected and would say something like "That joke's better than you acted" or "That joke was dumb, I am aware of that." He's funny. I wish he was making jokes still. Luckily, he still makes me laugh every time I watch.
