Hard work, responsibility and risk all contribute to the liberation of self-employment.
One of the qualities I admire about bees are they are hard workers. It is in those moments when I face a vast workload involving a campaign of non-stop hard work that I remember the humble bee, and I am inspired to focus upon finishing the task I am on, however hard it is.
The last month has been a hard month. Since my last blog entry of 17th November I have been focussed upon completing several business contracts that has been challenging physically and mentally. I completed the jobs in hand and invoiced the clients, yay! I am 14 lbs lighter in weight as a result.
Blogging had to take a backseat, for I had neither time or energy to spare for anything other than working, the business administration, eating and sleeping. I am self-employed you see, which means I have no master, no boss telling me what to do. I am my own master, but that means hard work, responsibility and some risk – or I starve. As much as I like blogging no bills are paid by me blogging, and priorities must be to pay the bills.
I do recommend self-employment, for it is one way of becoming liberated; its tough, sacrifices have to be made, but if you play it right it has unlimited potential to achieve your dreams; and best of all you are liberated to follow a path of your choosing rather than play to the dreams of another.
Until the next busy cycle in January I am liberated to follow an activity I love, which is blogging.
