Who am I kidding? Business really isn’t that easy period. 

Yes you love what you do in your business, but there are so many hats that you have to wear. There are so many moving parts of your business that need to be taken care of all of the time. 

Your to do list is already 3 miles long and it just keeps growing every day. 

You need to write that blog post. 

You need to post on social media multiple times a day. Oh and on more than just one platform. 

You need to email your list. 

You need to write that sales page copy. 

Then you need to put the sales page together and make sure all of the buttons work right. 

And of course you need to create that product, teach that course and deliver your services. 

Oh and don’t forget continuous marketing of your business to keep bringing in new students and clients. 

Your business bookkeeping and all the super fun stuff that goes along with accounting and bookkeeping, that you really just don’t understand. 

Not to mention that friends and family are constantly saying “When are you going to get a real job?”

It’s like a neverending ferris wheel that you are on, no way to get off, but most of the time, you really don’t want to get off this ride. 

You really love doing what you do in your business. 

You love the creation process. You love helping your clients. 

If you don’t have the support at home, or from family and friends, that is not the end of the road for you. 

I don’t have the support at home, so I found some online buddies who know what I’m going through with the business thing to keep in touch with. And with my family and friends, I don’t talk about my business. 

For me, personally, I had to keep things separate because my family and friends don’t support me having my own business, they are very strongly among the mindset of working a job and collecting a paycheck. 

I want to have my own business. I want to build a way to help online business owners with their money stuff in their business. 

And if my family and friends don’t support that, then they don’t need to know about it. 

I’ve found a select group of friends who also have online businesses that make having your own business seem so much easier, and can help on the days that I need more support. 

No, business isn’t always easy. 

But if you find your special group of people that can be your light when you need, you’ll be on your way to a more successful business. 

If you find the team that can support you in your business, you’ll have even more support in your business to help you grow it. 

You have to find what works best for you in your business. Find the right business model. Get the team. Get the support that you need. 

But most of all, make sure you do what you love. 

The saying “When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life” couldn’t be more true.
