The Tony Soprano School Of Stamping Business Ownership

Tony-sopranoDid you ever watch The Sopranos?

Tony Soprano was a classic character.  Despite being bald, overweight and having obvious "mother issues," he was a charismatic leader and ran a pretty good "business."

I actually think Tony Sopano would have made an excellent stamping business owner!

Here's why:

1. He Gets Others to Do Most Of His Work
Tony had a whole army of people under him who did his dirty work.  He only got involved when it was absolutely necessary, or when it was work only a leader could do.

If Tony were a stamping business owner, he would have a team working on the day-to-day stuff, so he could work on the "big picture" business ideas that would allow him to continue to grow.

2. He Keeps His Family & Business Life Separate
Despite "working from home" like most stamping business owners, Tony knows how to keep personal and business matters separate.

3. He Has An Accountability Partner
Tony met with his therapist, Dr. Melfi, every week, working through his challenges and helping him continue to move forward.  If Tony were a stamping business owner, he'd have a Coach (like me) to help do the same thing.

4. He Has Multiple Revenue Streams
Just like a good Stamping Business Owner, Tony is smart enough to not put all of his eggs in any one particular basket.  He knows that a successful business has multiple streams of income, so if one folds, the others are there to keep things profitable!

Although this post is obviously written with tongue firmly in cheek, what we're really talking about here is the importance of having a business with a solid foundation in the basics!

If you feel like you could use a little help with the basics, check out the Stamping Business Basics Program! 

No matter how long you've been a stamping business owner, if you feel like your foundation could use a little strengthening, this is the program for you!
