As with all entrepreneurs, Jo had her fair share of difficulties. A few of the demanding issues were working long hours, getting clients over a period of time, taking up to two years to acquire them, and separating business from personal life. Some other challenges she faced included delegation and staff management. The delegation of tasks, as she explained, does not give any entrepreneur the right not to be responsible directly or indirectly for overseeing the work. Managing people was key for her because it built patience, firmness and understanding of the people she was working with.
