    Pros

    You can learn a lot abt yourself and business by pushing to limits you havent reached before. Resources are all around you but you have to seek them out

    Cons

    The hours you put in, not because you are forced but because you want to do well. There is always so much to do and staff levels are lean. Good time managers can overcome these and do well

    Advice to Management

    Retool Learning Connection to teach/advise on How Tos and incorporate into how you get promoted
