Sometimes when the person you have everything to prove to is yourself, that impossible measure is someone what overwhelming.
I effectively run three businesses all funded by myself and every now and again, like recently, you start to feel the weight of it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s my choice but sometimes I really want to just go and work in a 9 – 6 and have the security of it. Loans would be easier to get, I’d see more people and I wouldn’t have so many thoughts in my head all of the time.
1) Where am I going to find funding?
2) Is my credit good enough to find funding?
3) Will fashion journalists ever be nicer and write about a start up business?
4) What if it all comes crashing down around me and they were right?
Again, I realise this is my own doing. In some ways it’s like going out on the town and complaining of a hangover the next day. Being overwhelmed from time to time is the hangover of business.
So what am I going to do about it?
Well I think the first thing is I need my support network of other people going through the same thing. A lot of people don’t really wanna hear about when you’re feeling anxious about a business you’ve chose to pursue, but another entrepreneur does get that it wasn’t entirely just down to choice that you started said business.
I also think I need to take more time out. I tend to work from 8am all the way through ’til midnight every day, so perhaps taking more time off would help a great deal.
Do you ever feel this way? How do you relax?
