Kudos to you for making the decision to stay in the game! But you and I both know that the absence of clients or a continuing stream of customers, not even the defibrillator can save you.
We all have them. That one client that makes you want to jump in a pond full of hungry alligators after interacting with them. Or what we refer to in the freelance world as PITAs (Pain In The A$$ Clients). But you continue to hang in there because there’s just something special about their products or services.
It’s the moment you’ve been dreading. Monday morning has arrived and the alarm clock is blaring in your ear. A feeling of disgust instantly dampens your mood as soon as you drag yourself jump out of bed. Work sucks, and the people that you must endure for the next 8 hours don’t make it any better. If only you could tell your boss to kiss your %$% and bounce, how grand life would be. (I actually considered doing so a few times in my working days).
Never in a million years would I have imagined that being a mommy-preneur came with so many interruptions.
I must have some sort of sign stuck on my forehead that reads: “available all day for babysitting, errands, grocery runs, or any other meaningless task that you need me to complete.”
