I have been running my own business for over 5 years now and while proud of myself, it has not been without its knocks and bumps. I have been thinking a lot recently, about what keeps you perceiving when things get tough. Set backs can feel like road blocks that stop you in your tracks.
Whether that is emails, phone calls, family commitments and the never ending back chat from social media. Everyone has an opinion. Not all of it is helpful.
There is always so much to do, marketing, accounting admin, on top of the work that you get paid for.
You have to have confidence in what you make, sell or the service you provide. Everyone at some point will have had these familiar comments.
“But I could do that myself….”
“Isn’t that a lot for just an hours work”
“Will it really take you that long”
“But I could get it cheaper from X, Y or Z”
I will start this by saying everyone will find their own ways of coping, but these are mine.
You are not alone
