As work starts and everyone rushes towards something, my partner and I find ourselves planning and dreaming towards a time where we can smile and look back at all we’ve built and achieved.
For us working 8-5 or whenever our employer deems a good time to close isn’t the end game. As much as it meets a need and puts food on the table, it doesn’t fill the hole inside. It leaves us feeling empty and exhausted but never fulfilled or satisfied.
Most people dream of running their own business, but for us it’s not just a dream or want, it’s a force of need. To be able to do what we love all day long will be too good to live up in a dream. We would rather make it a reality.
However, as with everything in life, you have to start somewhere and be willing to put in the work, time, energy and patience. Some days you’ll cry, others you’ll laugh out loud with joy. But through it all, never forget why you started and why you are doing it.
