The Opponent

Fear: Fear of not being as great as I want to be or trying to figure the path to get there can be daunting. Not having my employees feel about their career what I do, and me being the cause of it creates fear. Fear that I don't have all the answers both technically and from a business sense. 
I'm fearful that I'm not always the husband I want to be all the time. Fearful that I won't have the money I want in retirement for my family and I. 
I have fear that I will be like my father in way more ways than I like. I don't get along with him, nor do I want to.

Doubt: Doubt is always looming I guess. Making sure I make the right decisions when hiring, changing anything business wise, wether it be changing a retail line, color line, etc. I doubt my pay structure all the time all the while knowing deep down It's right. and feels right. 
For me, doubt doesn't play as big of a role. The biggest thing is my pay structure.

Guilt: The biggest area of guilt is my family. This ties in to all things. I worry that because I am a work horse, that I could be working too much and be away from my son and wife. I don't want my son growing up without me around however, I know what it takes to be successful and it's not working 40 hrs a week and wanting the things I want professionally for Craft+Theory. I always feel guilt with this. I feel guilt in the salon as well when it comes to spreading my time around with everyone. I may speak and converse with certain people more often than others. 
I feel guilt all the time that I don't speak to my family more on the phone. My mom, uncle, and grandmother come to mind first.
