Being your own boss!

This month I will have been my own boss for 5 years.


I always wanted to be my own boss.


I love the role but it's not always easy going.


But i'd definitely say the positives outweigh the negatives for me.


Here's some things I love and dislike about it!


❤️ I love: The independence. I have the power to shape my business, choose my own clients, and shape the path for my professional journey.


❤️ I love: The flexibility. It enables me to prioritise self-care, spend quality time with loved ones, and maintain overall well-being.


❤️ I love: The personal growth. Being my own boss has a lot of the time pushed me out of my comfort zone. From managing finances to marketing and developing new skills, I've gained valuable experience and knowledge.


😰 I dislike: Responsibility. As my own boss, I am solely responsible for the success or failure of my business. Sometimes those decisions aren't the easiest ones to make.


😰 I dislike: Uncertainty with financial stability. Inconsistent cash flow and unpredictable work flow can cause intense anxiety and stress. However, it can teach you resilience, resourcefulness, and the importance of planning ahead.


😰 I dislike: Work-life balance. Unfortunately sometimes being your own boss means your works takes over a bit too much. It can really blur the boundaries of your personal life and work. Being your own boss really requires discipline and being mindful of self-care.


Being your own boss really requires resilience, self-awareness, and a passion for continuous learning.


Despite the challenges, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything else.


It has empowered me to shape my own path and create a fulfilling professional life on my own terms.
