It’s easy to think of our lives as being separated into compartments. We might act like totally different people depending on whether we are at work, with our families, or with our friends.
Different scenarios do call for different behavior. But it is a mistake to think that how we act in one setting has no impact on who we are in another.
We can easily bring our work stress home. And if we go through a deeply painful or meaningful personal situation, that experience can dramatically impact other areas, including our professional lives.
This is exactly what happened to Michael Nova, whose music career led to the founding of multiple businesses including his primary business today, Nova Custom Label Printing. There are several lessons any entrepreneur — and really any person — can learn from his triumph over adversity.

I'm really surprised this post didn't do better. I thought his story was very inspirational. Maybe people don't like to hear about challenges?

Gail: Thanks for your input! 11 votes is pretty good, I think. Please, keep 'em coming!

I like to hear about challenges! Talking about that, have you listened to Steph Crowder's podcast, Courage & Clarity?

Happy New Year!

All the Best,
