Being self-employed is hard work. Anyone who thinks it isn’t, is fooling themselves. It’s hard, demanding, and requires a lot of attention to detail.
My day started off very early with my annual trip to the dentist. Immediately after that, I was on the road to attend a networking meeting. From there, I had no down time before I had to drive to Geneva for a professional photographers’ meeting. By the time I got home from that, it was well in to the evening. My wife had already had dinner, and the last I recall eating was when I grabbed a bagel after my dentist appointment.
That’s about what every day is like, 6 days a week. (I do not do business on Sunday. )
What happens to the self-employed when they don’t work hard?
They join the ranks of the 80% that go out of business in the 1st year.
