It can be hard. I’m just starting a brand new business, and finding that balance between being a wife, mom, woman, friend, and now business owner has been a struggle.
I’ve been sinking so many hours into Sassy Style – trying to get it just the way I’ve pictured it, get samples up, get our name out there, advertise, and think of fun new products, it’s been draining me! The past few nights I’ve been up until midnight (at the earliest!) working, so that my work doesn’t interfere with family time. But, even staying up late to work, it still does. I’m tired. I’m more short tempered. I’m on edge about this. I’m probably driving my friends bonkers asking for their input – but this is soooo important to me. I don’t just want to be good at this, I want to be great.
So, what has to give? My life was pretty packed before, now it’s almost unmanageable. I’ve been skipping meals to try to make time for this, losing sleep, neglecting my friends, worrying and taking my laptop to bed! So what’s giving right now is ME. I know it won’t be like this forever, and once we get a solid customer base things will fall into a good routine. In the mean time I guess I’ll just be exhausted!
