Sometimes owning your own company sucks. I love what I do and I love the employees of Craig Technologies. And I love the missions that we support and making an impact on people’s lives and honestly, on history.    BUT.. with a capital B. U. T., sometimes owning your own business sucks.   For the first time in my life, my family is going on vacation with out me. Do you know how hard that is for a control freak like myself?  Not only am I a ‘helicopter mother’ when it comes to my kids, but when I started my company, I made it clear that I wasn’t going to be the traditional CEO who traveled a lot.  However, I’ve realized that as the company grows and we all make sacrifices to secure our futures, it is only fair that I am right there along with the rest of my team making things happen.  And although I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself right now, I know that it sure could be a lot worse and missing a one week cruise isn’t the end of the world (although my 8 year old daughter will probably remember this when she is 16 and conveniently bring it up at the appropriate guilt driven time)
