Best part of job
The best part of my job is the self determination of being self employed. That and all the fantastic people I get to meet and stories I get to hear and tell.
Challenges of job
The hardest part is motivation. After that, it is the pressure of keeping the business up and the high standards we place on ourselves.

Warren Goulding, my associate editor....taught me everything I know about owning a newspaper.
