The heart & the head. •
Honesty time. Sometimes owning a small business is awesome. You meet people, you get to be creative and you get to be your own boss doing what you think is best for the company and sooo much more.
AND, sometimes, it sucks.
You have to give up a lot of things to put your baby of a business first (insert anything fun &/or relaxing). You have to wait (impatiently 🙋🏼) to see if all your endlesssss hours of work are going to pay off. You might have to spend lots of money trying different things. You might have to just throw it all at the wall and see what sticks. It's scary. You have to deal with people who might step on your toes or even ones who will step on your back, just to better themselves in the process. Being young(er) in business, you may deal with (lots!) of people who don't take you seriously or brush you aside. (Hello! You'll be the first to know when I succeed 😒) You have to put your work out there and pray people even like it. And then buy it. You have to have self control AND guts. Both of which, I'm not gunna lie, I struggle with.
I keep going because I know I'm meant for more. I'm meant for better. And I'll be damned if I can't build it for myself. •
