A lot of times starting out means that you are broke and/or relying on your friends, family or ‘significant other’ to support you. For some, it can lead to stress, anxiety and even depression. Christopher Sutton knows these feelings all too well. A few years ago, Christopher wrote a blog post about what it was like to experience the emotional roller coaster of starting his own business, Easy Ear Training.
