You guys know of my self employment story and how it came about. No one coached me no one mentored me. I kinda just did it on a whim. I’ve literally been winging it; it’s derived from a trial and error basis. Even though I knew it would be challenging, I didn’t foresee any of the things that I have experienced so far. I really find that a lot of people tell your their hardship from the highest point of their success and although it’s inspirational, we become a little desensitised to their strife because we see them at the pinnacle of their success.
I really want to change that narrative and let you guys know of all the shit that’s been happening to me whilst it’s still happening. I think a lot of you think I’m super successful and already have all my ducks in a row and obviously, it sometimes does look that way because like the rest of the world, I put my best looking bits on social media. I’m not saying that I’m curating life that isn’t true to the one that I live, it’s just that I don’t always want to wallow in my misfortunes on instagram everyday (as i’ve said previously positive affirmations are a must). Just as many great things happen to me, shitty things are a regular occurrence too.
This post is going to be a round up of things I didn’t expect to happen to me whilst I’ve been self employed and I hope that if you’re ever thinking about taking the leap of working for yourself, this gives you a heads up on what may occur. Think of this as a precautionary post that will give you another perspective and better yet time to research and figure out preventative methods to avoid the crappy parts.
