Sometimes running a small online business can be really hard.
Most of us aren't fortunate enough to solely run our online business, at least in the beginning anyway. We work for the man from 9-5 and then come home and start working again on something more meaningful and purposeful.
We put family and friends to one side while we busily work away trying to get our passions off the ground and take them to a place where we can walk away from the 9-5 and begin living the internet lifestyle.
I'm in that situation right now. I'm in the exciting position to be involved in a new start-up, something I've wanted to for a while and the fact that I'm doing it with a good friend makes it even better.
But I'm also in the position where I'm working in a very demanding day job that requires a lot of my time both in and out of work hours. It's a really good job and I really enjoy the work, don't get me wrong but it's very tiring at times.
I've also got a young family that I want to be with and spend time with, which I don't think anyone can argue with.
Most small start-ups are the same. It's not easy but it's what we do. Why do we do it?
Well my answer is simple. Most don't like it, especially my wife sometimes but the answer is always the same. I do it because I know I want help small business owners make the most of their online business because so do I.
So if you're finding the fight hard just do what I do. Take a deep breath, think about the goal you're trying achieve and get right back to it.
