Many business owners (not just black business owners) can make the mistake of focusing more on the development of the business as opposed to the development of themselves. While there is a lot of overlap here, you have to develop along with the business. You won’t be able to run a business for the long-term if you are not passionate about it and have daily motivation to move forward.
Constantly reevaluate your strengths and weakness, and where you might need to get help. You should always be looking to expand mentally and emotionally by reading good books and getting the right exercise and nutrition. Ultimately, your business runs on you. Make sure the gas tank is full and don’t merely trade time for money. Otherwise, you will wear yourself out.
