Dealing with ups and downs of self employment
It’s no secret that owning a business means dealing with the ebbs and flows, the mountains and valleys, the busy and slow, however you choose to define it. All businesses have their busy and slow times and really, everyone who works deals with this…well except data entry. In my mind, data entry produces a never ending stream of monotonous work, and I fear that. But anyway…no matter how calm I am about the ebbs and how seasoned I am to knowing they will pass, and using that time to get the the little stuff done…when the flow hits I get caught off guard. All of a sudden I wake up to a full inbox containing all sort of !! and with an abundance of demands that I’m not quite used to at the moment. Sorta like taking a nap and waking up to remember that 20 people were coming to your house in an hour for a party and you totally had forgotten. You get up and as the sleep leaves your eyes, you start to get all…yeah thats what I’m talking about…party time!!! I realize I just admitted that I equate having a crazy amount of work to do as party time…but why fake it, we all know I feel that way.
What’s the point of this rambling on a Monday morning…well mainly I’m using it to stall dealing with all of the emails. Ok, I’m really waiting for my studio manager, Lauren to arrive so she can deal with them but whatever…apples and oranges. The point is that I’m having a “woah, I was totally in slow mode and not prepared for what this week is really going to be like” panic attack in a public place. One of those moments when you wonder if the internet is being put to good use…your call. Ok…deep breaths…yay for busy!!
