Remember when you decided to leave that 9 - 5 job you hated? You proudly told your family and friends that you were going to take a leap of faith and start your own business.
Remember when they gave you a blank stare and a “have you lost your mind” look back? You assured them that you were sane, had a great plan, and had worked out all the details.
Remember when you envisioned a business where you could work from anywhere, anytime, and set your own schedule? You know, the luxurious laptop life. Maybe on the beach or in a hammock with a cold beverage by your side.
Those were the days!!! Now for the reality. Business doesn’t just fall off a tree. You can’t get everything done that you want. Your dream of a 20-hour workweek suddenly became your worst nightmare of 80-hour workweeks. You feel like you are chained to your laptop!
Living a life of isolation and overwhelm, along with being underpaid and overworked, isn’t everything it was cracked up to be.
