CONFESSION #5 - Being a business owner isn't very glamorous


CONFESSION: Being a “strength coach/personal trainer/fitness teacher” whatever you’d call someone like me... and business owner, isn’t as glamorous as it sounds.

Here is my indoor office. In addition to teaching outside, I’m now an avid user of Final Cut Pro, which gives me the control 😜haha... to edit, fine tune and record voice overs for my projects. I’ve been staring at the computer on an off for too many hours to count this week. With a small surfing break in between! Yay for the beach...and kiddos being out of school!

I admit, at times I want to punch a hole in the wall from my own OCD and perfectionism that I bring on myself. I also get very antsy and have a super difficult time being confined to one space. Yes, I choose this. It’s the price you pay for wanting to release impeccable content and material. It’s the price you pay to put yourself out there and hope people benefit and love it. Working hard, doesn’t mean you don’t love it, but you don’t have to love all of it.

Don’t mistake this for a gripe. I LOVE the freedom to be able to make my own schedule. That’s the number one thing for me when having a career. I may work 60 hours one week and then 25 hours the next. Having that flexibility is uber important. My own issue is not knowing when to shut it off at times. Still working on that one 😉

I can just feel all the heads nodding now. All my Entrepreuner and business owner friends get it. Especially the #mompreneurand the dads who are also juggling it all.

Just know it’s not as glamorous as it may seem. But it can be worth it.

Being a business owner for 15 years I have to say, you NEED to schedule FUN to survive.
Sending a shout out to all of my hard working friends! Just know you’re not alone. Hope you love what you do. Cheers!
