Being an entrepreneur is hard work. In fact, it's the hardest I've ever worked in my entire life. "Start your own business!" they said, "it's the best" they said, working for yourself, making your own schedule..
Well, here's what it's REALLY like being an entrepreneur....
Yes yes yes! This new item is so awesome, I'm obsessed, everyones going to love it, for sure going to be the next best seller.
*3 months go by, no one orders item, ends up gifting to Grandma*
Yes yes yes! Prepped so many items for the re-stock, shop is full, promised clients lots of inventory.
*Sells out in 15 minutes*
Me to me: how late is too late to stop drinking coffee? how early is too early to start drinking wine?
Me to me: Are heart palpitations normal after drinking 6 cups of coffee?
Me to friend: can you tell I've been using dry shampoo for 8 days?
Ok, that's it, I'm full absolutely no more orders.
*Oh you need a last minute gift by tomorrow, sure no problem*
Me: Being an entrepreneur is amazing, I love what I do, this is freaking awesome.
Also me: This is shit, I am shit.
~If I turn down one person my business is going to fail.
While all the above is true, being an entrepreneur is still ah-freaking-mazing, and I know that I will never be able to go back to a job that isn't focused on furthering my own goals. BUT IT'S FREAKING HARD! There's a constant battle between not having enough hours in the day, not having enough product, not having enough hands, not having enough patience. Sometimes I question why I do what I do, but then I read the sweet comments and see the smiling faces when you guys pick up your orders and I am instantly reminded how truly blessed I am.
Thank-you for your continued support on this crazy, wild, tough, entrepreneurial journey.
