Business owners are entrepreneurs who have made the decision to commit their knowledge, passion, and leadership skills to build a local, regional, or national enterprise. While there are tremendous personal and financial rewards in owning a business, there is also an incredible amount of work and many challenges that business owners experience. These leaders must have a working familiarity with all aspects of the industry – from project administration and environmental stewardship to sales and HR to business management. Ownership is an excellent option for those who can draw upon lessons they have learned over time and want to commit themselves to the industry long term.
