Calling the Shots

One thing you learn very quickly as a business owner is that you have to like making decisions.  You don't always have to like the nature of the decisions you need to make, but you've gotta love the responsibility of calling the shots and dealing with the consequences.  It's a daily responsibility that can be overwhelming if you let it, or invigorating if you revel in it.
