This sentence is key: “What’s been interesting to me is that the mental pressure has actually become greater as our business has grown.”

I tell my staff that success doesn’t make things easier, it makes them harder. Every time we exceed a customer’s expectations we’ve made our lives harder because we have to be that much better next time. It’s the only way to grow but the pressure builds. The key is recognizing that first then dealing with it.
