Hey Ross - same dilemma here. And those two choices perfectly sum up the essence of the entrepreneurial spirit - part rebel, part revolutionary.
|Headline:||run a house, a family and my new biz|
|Description:||First of all, me:|
My name is Stella. I have a husband, who grudgingly supports this crazy journey to build my own business. I also have a son and a daughter who would support me even if I opened up a ski shop in the Mojave.
I find myself surrounded by weird and wonderful (some are just weird) people who continue to help me build my business from dream to reality.
And my story:
I worked for ten years in the marketing department of a ridiculously large corporation.
It started out okay; but, over time, I started to notice a couple things. When I began my career, I couldn’t wait to get to work. After a few years, I couldn’t wait to get home.
I used to write real creative stuff—ad copy and commercials for television. All of the sudden, I was writing inconceivably long and tedious account status reports and time tracking projections. I went from thinking, “Where did the time go?” to watching the clock and savoring each day I turned the page of my daily planner. Eventually, I found myself writing little notes on each page—little observations about work and a couple of cheers to help me hang in there.That’s when it hit me: make a calendar for people who are spending time at life, not spending time at work!
I designed this calendar for people who are brave enough, or just plain crazy enough, to leap into creating a home business career… people like me. I spent 10 years as an exhibit in the corporate cubicle zoo before I escaped and became the CEO of a corporation of one (except when I can con my kids into helping me out).
The rest is history! Or will be soon.
My hope is to help you love what you do, laugh a lot, tough it out, and as my friends at SartupNation say, START IT UP!
