When you hear of people being self employed I am sure the first thought is – well what is the daily routine like of one – working from home – the home office. Is there any envy? Years ago when I used to work at United Parcel Service I would get up and be out the door in less than an hour with no time to hardly think – under heavy stress knowing the level of responsibility before me for each and every day. I did that for 13 years until I incurred a career ending injury.
The joy that comes from being self employed is the fact you set your schedule, take off when you want, go to the dentist for a check up without having to skip your lunch to take care of those simple things. The downside is – it’s ALL on you to be a success but the UPSIDE is there is total freedom in it ALL! Why make your company ALL the money and you make pennies in comparison? How much are you worth per hour? I can tell you – if you are working for someone else – more than likely you are not getting paid what you are worth.
When I get up, I get up when — I wake up, watch a little news, ESPN Sportscenter, eat breakfast which always includes the best coffee in the world – Brazilian Coffee – then a time in prayer getting ready for the day. I get the opportunity to meet great people every day from every walk of life who are in NEED. The ability to help someone change their life on a daily basis – YOU CAN’T PUT A PRICE TAG ON THAT!
