Killing my business was the hardest decision I ever made
In 1983, I started the business that would consume more than three decades of my life.
I had started businesses before this. I had a part-time rare coin business with my brother in law and had been in a partnership with a friend running a wholesale/retail hobby ceramics shop. Those businesses were deliberate and planned; starting them was a decision reached after serious consideration and planning.
Beginning this business was more from desperation than planning.
