Boy, let me tell you. This one’s a biggie. Independence as an entrepreneur is incredible. You can be hyper-creative, you can create imagery around your vision and you carry the passion for your business with you everywhere.
What you need to know is that people don’t see how much of an emotional and financial rollercoaster is really is. You can have the most incredible day to waking up the next morning and some aspect of your business takes a complete 180. You’re like “what just the heck happened!”
Let me give you some advice that will help you immensely (easier said than done though). First, never allow the situation to emotionally nock you out. 9 out of 10 times, things with your perseverance and kind tenacity will get it back on track. Always remember that some piece of a sales or business is better than nothing. Second, don’t be afraid to go over someone’s head. This is your future and your money and your life right? Are you going to allow some clown that getting paid minimum wage dictate your future? Man-up and take charge. Put your contact on notice and employee your second initiative, code……CEO. You never know how it will go!
In my case, it works. If I can do it so can you. To sum things up:Independence is great, but be strong enough emotionally to roll with the punches.”¨
