Trying to be smart and manage the challenges of growing pains as the business evolves and becomes a much bigger business from where it started.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Believe in yourself and what you do. Be prepared to work hard. You need to stay relevant and always be aware of what is new and be prepared to add or change your business to meet what the market demands.
