I’ve don’t remember what it’s like to be an employee of a company.
It doesn’t mean I haven’t had my moments where I was sitting at my computer and applied to hundreds of big brand companies.
I’ve never committed to shutting my company down, but I know why I have sent out my resume.
I felt tired.
Tired of living project to project.
Tired of coming to work everyday doing the same thing and expecting different results.
Tired of being rejected all the time because their friend with an iphone can do it for free.
Tired of not being able to commit to vacations with my wife because I’m always working.
It takes a toll on you.
It can feel like the weight of the entire world is on you.
You read, reflect and think critically, yet nothing seems to help.
I see people all the time that work for corporate companies. I see facebook pictures of them sitting on a beach with their friends, attending events and experiencing life.
Not so much for us lately.
I’m brainstorming, photographing, testing and implementing new strategies to grow the business.
It can be very lonely being left with your thoughts, but you tell yourself everyday it will be worth it.
I can build something great.
I can look back someday and know that all the hard work was worth not going on vacations 2 or 3 times a year.
You continue to push harder because you believe in what you are creating.
You believe that there is no telling how far you will have to run while chasing your dreams.
Most importantly you believe in yourself.
