BusinessInterviews.com: What has been your biggest challenge as a business owner and how have you met that challenge?
Marty Stallone: The biggest challenge I have faced throughout my professional career relates to the ability to strike the ideal balance between my professional responsibilities and my familial responsibilities, not to mention trying to find adequate time to contribute to the community in some meaningful way. I’m quite sure this is an issue all professionals encounter, as it is always so tempting to channel all of one’s energy into ensuring the success of a single endeavor. I’ve overcome this challenge by outlining and evaluating my current priorities with the goal of ensuring there is an equal balance in terms of work, family, and community. Since I regularly revisit and reevaluate these priorities, I have been able to strike a healthy balance throughout the entirety of my professional career.
