That’s right I said it! I have a love-hate relationship with the service industry — Yes, the industry that pays my bills and puts food on the table, and I have a very volatile relationship.
Why? You ask… Now that’s a story I can’t wait to tell…
So let’s get right to it, shall we?
Let’s start with the positives the things I love
💕 Making my own schedule
💕 The freedom to work from my couch, like I am right now
💕 The ability to work from anywhere with a wi- fi connection
💕 The incredible business from all over the globe I get to work with
💕 The amazing friends and colleagues I meet along the way
💕 All the learning experiences and perspectives I gain on the regular
Come to think of it there is so much more I love than I hate.
And hate really is a strong word, but there are some things that are not favourites of mine.
I don’t want to drag it out so here it is my not so favourites,
💔 Feeling like I’m always on – my fault as I am still learning to set boundaries
💔 Feeling undervalued, and I do this to myself too – by not charging enough
💔 I take every failure or less than desirable result of your business like it’s my own
💔 A vacation is never truly a vacation – I feel like I always have to check-in at least on rain days (shhh… don’t say that out loud, it’ll rain every day 😂 trust me it has)
💔 I can never remember my amazing dreams about my work — I SOO WISH I COULD, there have been some amazing pieces of content I’ve dreamt up
But with all that I still wouldn’t trade it for the world, because of the happiness, I see when a post clicks or a launch is successful or that one comment or reply that makes your day – that makes it all worth it!
I love seeing messages and sales come in, email opens, and all the things, hearing someone found you from your post – that’s why I do what I do and it’s all worth it!
Yes, it’s a love – hate but mostly a labour of love.
