As I'm sitting here on a Sunday morning, feeling drained and down, working out how I can make my business work, It made me think about the reasons I made the leap to create something for myself and my family in the first place.
Feeling paralysed and not achieving anything, I decided to share a bit about me and the emotions all entrepreneurs most feel at some point.
I am married to my beautiful wife and have twin daughters who are starting school tommorow. I love my little family and I have alot to be grateful for. Working a 50+ hour week just to get by!, got me thinking that there must be more to life than this, which is why I made the decision late last year to create a better life for my family. Time is something you cant buy and I would love to be able to spend more time with my family
I was under no illusion that it was going to be a get rich quick scheme and would need alot of time and hard work on my part to make it work. To be honest I have made alot of mistakes so far but I'm learning as I go.
When I left school over 15 years ago I wanted to be a graphic designer but of course life gets in the way and I ended up doing menial jobs just to pay the bills. Choosing now to design shirt prints is probably crazy and the most competitive market to get into but it's something I enjoy doing and would love to spend every day creating something new.
I have always been introverted and have a creative mind. I don't claim to be the greatest artist but everything I create comes from my views of the world and is a direct reflection of my personality.
If you have read this far, I thank you!. The struggle is real, but keep up the fight and remember the reasons why...., when you feel like giving up!
