I always thought working for myself would be cool. No doubt it is cool not having anyone to report to, being able to get up much later than the rest of the working world, being able to sit in the office with just my shorts and t-shirt, being able to go shopping during office hours and all that.
But there is one thing about working for yourself that is not that great which is the fact that I have to do everything myself. God, it's crazy at times. I'm up to my neck with work (which is good cos that means more money for me) that I hardly have time to do anything else. The moment I get up, it's work. work and more work till god knows what time.
Wifey does help me out as best as se can with the paperwork and accounting (thank god) but when it comes to the actual production work which really is the main part of my work, she can't really help me much with it. It's really not her cup of tea anyway, so I can't expect her to do my production work. But at least she helps me with conceptualization and contributes some pretty great ideas that I've unofficially made her my creative director ... LOL!
But seriously, working on your own can be so tiring but you really cannot afford to play the fool or bum off cos now the money is all mine and screwing up a job can cause dire consequences for my company. But then, nobody ever said that being your own boss was a piece of cake, right? Beside it is way so much better for me to complain that I'm up to my neck with work than saying I have no work at all, that would not be good.
Once I get some of these work completed and out of the way, I'm definitely going to look into those Orlando vacation packages cos I really need to take the family and go for some time off to recharge my batteries and refresh my mind. Besides, it's the school holidays and the boys have been stuck home all week and are starting to complain already.
