Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Mar 4, 2019

Thank you for listening to episode 131 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  For this episode we wanted to talk about the not so great parts of running your own business.  Not to be a downer but to let you know that it can be a real struggle at times.  If you're thinking of stepping out on your own these are real things that you'll deal with and if you're already on your own you're not alone.  We hope that this chat opens you're eyes a little more to the other side of the table!  Enjoy!

If you're liking what you hear please leave us a comment and rating on whatever podcast platform your listening from.  It's always great to hear what our listeners think.  Plus, the more positive ratings we get the higher the podcast is gets ranked which will make it seen for more future listeners.  Thanks!
