Well I dont think its faliure , but maybe it could be considered as such , after 911 all of the rich people who were our clients just decided to clamp up on the ole checkbook and it took 9 months to collect all of the money owed to us , that hurt things quite a bit, we closed up shop
I ran a daycare for five+ years. I would not say it was a failure, because I made a living, but it never was what I really wanted it to be. I realize now that I tried too hard to sell a program (which is key for daycare centers) and not hard enough to sell myself, the caregiver, which is the heart of home daycares.
