Given that today is Valentine’s Day, my mind naturally went to the topic of love. And given that this blog is about work and such, I went straight to the quote that says something along the lines of “do what you love and you’ll never work another day.”
In my humble opinion, that really is one of the best things about owning your own business. You get to choose WHAT you do. You get to choose who you do it WITH and FOR.
Most everyone I know (including myself) has had at least one job that became absolutely toxic. You know the one. The one that makes you hate getting out of bed Monday through Friday, but has you bouncing through the day on the weekends. The one that makes you cry when you wake up, while you’re in the shower, while you’re driving to the job, while you’re driving home after work, and while you’re trying to go to sleep. The one where, whether it’s because of your boss, your coworkers, your clients, or the actual work you’re doing, you eventually hit that wall where you say, “I cannot do this for one. more. second.”
I can’t say that, in the 6+ years I’ve been out on my own, I’ve felt like what I was doing wasn’t work. It is. And some days it’s hard. But I can say I’ve never had so much fun doing what I do. I’m blessed with a set of clients that I love and feel excited to work my booty off for. And who knew setting my own schedule and doing my work on my terms would make such a difference?!?!?!?!
