Making personal sacrifices to set up a business
Many people don’t realise the full extent of how much time you have to give to setting up a new business. Or, if you’re like me you had an idea but when it comes down to it, that doesn’t make the workload any easier! I honestly cannot remember the last time I cooked and ate at home, maybe it was the previous Thursday when I had a pot noodle. Recently every meal has either been scoffed amongst the rubble of the shop or eased down with a scooner at the pub. Vegetables - a treat of the past, a dream of the future. I can only sigh and watch my waist-line expand. What’s that place the gym? Uh, I feel tired just thinking about it. Think i’ll have to have a lie down.
Other luxuries that quickly slip down the list of priorities:
Personal Hygiene: No one notices how greasy your hair is when you're covered in dust and paint 24/7. Brush teeth or go straight to bed, what a conundrum! ohhh bed your looking rather lovely this evening.
Friends: I’m not sure mine exist anymore. One day i’ll get to see them again.... at the end of that rainbow.
Relationships: Persuade other half that trip to Ikea is actually romantic date. Stop half way round at Ikea cafe and buy her $4.95 dinner, kerrr-ching!
Wearing nice clothes: I’m pretty sure board shorts and flannel-shirts are in right now.
Weekends: I was never a fan anyway.
Oh and in case you were wondering I bought myself new underwear today. Forget laundry, I just don’t have the time!
