Groundhog Do-Over: What Do You Wish You Had Done Differently?

By Lauren Caldwell | Feb 02, 2016 | 1

It’s that time of year again: Groundhog Day! We’re big Bill Murray fans (remember Groundhog Day?)  over here at KCSourceLink, so we asked a handful of Kansas City entrepreneurs what would they do differently with their businesses if stuck in a Groundhog Day time warp (ah, the suspense).


(Full disclosure: We had so many respondents (thank you!) that we’re planning a Groundhog Day Do-Over Do Over, so stay tuned for Groundhog Do-Overs: Take Two.)

What do you wish you had done differently when you opened your business?

To sum up, our entrepreneurs advised to make sure your idea is viable and worth investing in. Learn from your mistakes and forge ahead. And most importantly, #YOLO.

Here they are in their own words . . .

Derek Anderson, The Green Van Dry Cleaning  “In hindsight, it would have been easier to start a small business without a partnership. A friend and I formed the business together in 2003. He was a silent partner, and I was the managing partner. I bought his portion of the business several years ago. We are still friends.”  . . . read the whole article here
