A lot of people claim to love their jobs, especially when they’re being interviewed by a reporter for a business profile. But in Aaron Warner’s case, it’s tempting to take what he says at face value – especially when he volunteers the catchphrase so readily, and without overt prompting. “This is the most fun, most rewarding thing I've ever done,” said Mr. Warner, CEO of ProCircular in Coralville, who’s been named the Corridor Business Journal’s 2022 TLC Entrepreneur of the Year. “It’s also the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and the most challenging. Honestly, I have to be careful, because this is so personal, and I enjoy the work so much that it's easy to overlook the things in your personal life that you should do. When it doesn't feel like work, it's really easy to overdo the amount of time you put into it. I love spending time with my family, so I have to remind myself to balance it out.”
