Repost from @incmagazine – Dragon Forge is a family business, but son Rory wasn’t always sure he wanted to make blacksmithing his career. “It used to be a form of punishment,” he laughs. “The family business was more of a lifestyle. If dad needed a hand, he had me to show up at the shop to help out. I got handed a lot of the grunt work.” After earning a degree in Media Arts and Animation, Rory officially joined the Dragon Forge team to help rebrand the company. But as anyone knows, owning and running a business isn’t always easy. Craig says, “It is the most challenging, frustrating thing that anyone could do. Between working in the studio and procuring materials for projects, I have a 10- to 12-hour day. That’s the challenge of being self-employed.” (📸: @terryratzlaff) #family #entrepreneur #challenge
