I never even thought about writing a piece for a blog before. I didn’t think I would have anything interesting to say that people would think was worth reading. So now here I am, taking on the challenge! WHY NOT?
Hmmm. So what do I say now? You would think when we live in a world where social media is right in our pockets at all times I would plenty to talk about. I guess I’ll just talk a little bit about myself. I am a small business owner just trying to make it in this big world. I love what I do, and I say that with true honesty! I used to work for “the man” and was miserable because all I did was work. I understand we all have to work and make a living but I also wanted to REALLY LIVE. My work is my livelihood, not my life.
So I decided to take the plunge and become my own boss! It was scary don’t get me wrong but I can say it was well worth it. I actually get to spend time with my spouse now, instead of just passing him in the washroom while getting ready for bed. You don’t realize how important people are to you until you never have time to see them.
It has been the greatest decision I have made and I’m so glad I didn’t let the doubters and naysayers get to me! People get so caught up in work and making money that they don’t realize there is so much to do and see. What is all the money in the world worth if we don’t spend it doing something we enjoy and with people we care about?
