MO: Where does your passion for small businesses come from?
Ron: I’ve always been entrepreneurial, ever since I was a little kid and I shoveled neighbors’ driveways and even ran a carnival from our driveway. I’ve founded a number of startup companies, some more successful than others, but I’ve always loved the idea of creating something from nothing. I guess it’s the idea that you can have an idea, work on it, iterate it a few times, and build something big that really appeals to me. And nothing evokes the spirit of self-fulfillment like being a small business operator. That and the fact that I make a terrible employee really endears me to small businesses. I love everything about small businesses – from the personal connection between the person who owns and runs the business and the customers, to the intense focus on operations and getting things right. I find that the larger a company gets the more that the management and the customers diverge in their interests and the less things get interesting.
