Skip Kelley's experience ("Big Dreams," Insider, November) is an excellent example of how new companies are too concerned with making it, not with thinking of what could happen if things go well or better than expected.

I started my company more than a year ago. Company growth has been incredible. But with it came lots of headaches and problems, chief of which was my impending burnout.

I then decided to merge my company with a health-care management firm. I can now breathe easier, knowing that I can concentrate on the things I enjoy and do best.

The merger has resulted in even greater expansion and growth possibilities. I own a smaller piece of a bigger company, which is just fine with me.
