I can completely relate to bloggers who tell me how they wish they were able to focus on their passions but are unable to give their all because of work, family, life, you name it. It’s so easy to put our needs and desires last.
Starting a business has not been easy. Managing a household, raising a teen, paying bills, working as a consultant and building a clientele has taken up every minute my day. Although things are moving, there are days that just leave me completely exhausted. Sometimes I wonder if it would be easier to get a job in an office. In some ways, it would be. Logistically. Maybe. I actually don’t know.
I do know for sure that it would be hard on me emotionally. Because it would mean giving up my dreams. I come from a family of entrepreneurs so this just feels right to me. The chaos. The wins. The losses. It’s in my DNA. But the last couple of weeks have been tough. I had to make the decision to slow down consulting if I want to take my business to the next step. Consulting at competing agencies seemed really, really counter-productive, and I needed to make a choice.
