Just wondering how everyone copes when times are tough with their business?
I'm sure we all have periods where things are slow with the business or there is a run of customers who are just plain awful. What do you do to keep your spirits up & keep going ... even though you might feel drained, tired & wonder if things are ever going to get any better?
I'm 3 years into my business & although I know I've achieved a fair bit & am sticking to my business plan which I still believe in, it still feels like it is taking forever to 'make it'. I often feel guilty that I work a lot, but aren't providing as much money to my family as we really need. I know I could go back to work for someone else & earn a reasonable living ... but I would be more disconnected from my family than I am now because currently I work from home, so am always there for the kids. My youngest child goes to school next year & deep down I know that all I have done in the last 3 years is lay the ground work for my business but from next year, I will have some proper blocks of time to work effectively & really make this thing fly. But with bills coming in thick & fast at home, I worry about the money. Ugh, it's just a wee bit hard sometimes.
